HARBOUR ARCH ON CAPE TOWN’S FORESHORE UNDER WAY
Cape Town’s largest mixed-use development, Harbour Arch, is taking shape after construction commenced in January 2020. The project is set to be an iconic landmark that will feature a world class live, work and play precinct within the city’s CBD, according to Nicholas Stopforth, MD of Amdec Property Developments.
Presently, the development can be clearly seen rising above Table Bay Boulevard and Stopforth says the transformation of what was previously a site characterised by vagrancy and warehousing into a safe, community-focused environment, heralds a new era of urban living for the CBD.
Once Harbour Arch is complete, six residential towers will sit above landscaped public spaces lined with shops, restaurants, two Marriot hotels, offices and gyms. The concept of development as a vibrant precinct for diverse communities is in line with property trends driving urban densification developments that have a positive fiscal impact, bringing new business and work opportunities to Capetonians.
WBHO is the main construction partner. It is a Level 1 BBBEE company reflecting Amdec’s commitment to creating an environment that can be beneficial to South Africans from all walks of life. The building of the precinct will provide about 20 000 jobs, with more created upon completion due to retail, hospitality and security services.
