With construction underway to the next best thing happening in and around the Mother City, The Harbour Arch is being developed by the Amdec Group, recognised as South Africa’s leading developer of New Urban lifestyles. Harbour Arch stands out because it will be the first large-scale, inner-city, mixed-use precinct. By doing so it will open doors to investments and new opportunities for Cape Town.
Looking at the construction, it appears like something from a movie, but it makes one wonder where the idea came from. It will be similar to Melrose Arch in Johannesburg. It will encapsulate new urban living, and present an opportunity for people to live, work, play, relax, and stay in a safe, convenient, enjoyable and sustainable community-focused environment.
The Harbour Arch will consist of six towers with amazing views of the city and pristine landscaped spaces with shops, restaurants, cocktail bars, international hotels, offices, health clubs and the largest selection of residential apartments in Cape Town CBD. The development will consist of 5.8 hectares and will be home to the six individual tower blocks with a total of 200 000m² usable space.
The investment by itself is not the only economic impact this development will have on the City of Cape Town. More than 20 000 jobs will be created during the construction phase alone, and thousands more in the precinct’s tourism, hospitality, and retail sectors post-construction. This will contribute much needed help to the people of the city, especially after the bad impact the Covid 19 crisis brought to the country.
With the V&A Waterfront, now Cape Town’s most popular tourist destination attracting more than 24 million visitors each year, this spectacular development will be one of the new destinations to visit when you travel to beautiful Cape Town.
The Amdec Group. who will be in charge of this magnificent development, is a privately owned company who worked on big projects such as Val de Vie, Pearl Valley and Melrose Arch. With some big developments under their brand, we can only imagine how this project will turn out.
Harbour Arch will be an example of the efficient and sustainable neighbourhoods of the future. Within its mixture, apartment residents, hotel guests, office workers, tourists, shoppers, restaurant patrons, fitness enthusiasts, visitors and socialites will find a world-class, safe and secure mixed-use public precinct in which to congregate – day and night.
Another win for the Mother city. I for one am looking forward to the end result of this stunning construction site.
