With local and well located public transit precincts such as this area targeted for significant future densification and intensification, this underutilised site has the potential to accommodate higher density mixed residential development, benefitting from superior public transit accessibility and a strong existing threshold population.

Located right at Montevista commuter railway station in the northern suburbs of Cape Town, this 7,6 ha and substantially under-utilised but very accessible site currently accommodates municipal depot facilities and a waste drop-off site in the process of being closed and relocated, as well as some stormwater detention facilities and a public car park as forecourt to the station. Nestled in the Tygerdal neighbourhood in Goodwood, which abuts the major retail, commercial and employment centre of N1 City a short distance to the east, the site enjoys good access from nearby higher order roads with superior access to the public transport network due to its location in this transit accessible precinct.

Bidder teams are given the opportunity to develop ambitious and innovative higher density mixed residential proposals incorporating convenience commercial and/or community or civic elements and demonstrating surrounding public realm improvements. The City of Cape Town expects on this site projects that will demonstrate new and innovative forms of mixed infill urban development with high environmental performance. In accordance with the objectives of the municipality to appropriately manage the impact of city growth through transit-oriented development, bidders will have to propose the best solutions towards a carbon neutral and more resilient urban development.
