NEW CANAL DISTRICT FOR V&A WATERFRONT

BY BUSINESS REPORT - 11 JANUARY 2016

The new mixed-use V&A Waterfront Canal District straddles both sides of Dock Road and totals 7.6 hectares. It will tie into the arterial route that connects the city centre to the V&A Waterfront, and into the main pedestrian route that runs along Dock Road.

The development will include the new canal district and an urban park incorporating the remnants of the historical Amsterdam Battery, which is the first point of contact with the V&A Waterfront for visitors entering the property from the city centre.

Demand for commercial space at the V&A Waterfront is driving development in this district. It is also a piece in the jigsaw puzzle that provides a seamless link through to the CTICC and Cape Town’s CBD,” said David Green, CEO of the V&A Waterfront.

One of the first projects in the new canal district is the construction of a new corporate head office for the multi-national British American Tobacco South Africa.

Other recent developments at the Waterfront include the installation of more than 7 500m² of solar panels on eight rooftops of key buildings, a multi-use innovation hub, designed to showcase solutions to South African and African problems and the development of a cruise terminal.
