The Cape Town Foreshore is in the process of upgrades, there have been 6 proposals about what to do with the space, which are now open for public comment.
The Cape Town Foreshore has had 6 proposals about what to do with the space and how to alleviate congestion. The City of Cape town has released the proposals to the public for comment.
“The Foreshore Freeway Project will be on a scale of development never seen before in Cape Town. We expect it to resolve some of the challenges that are currently preventing us from realising the city’s full potential – the lack of mobility being key.” – Councillor Brett Herron, the City’s Mayco member for the Transport and Urban Development Authority
The six proposals are open to public viewing at the Civic Centre but to view them online we have the 6 video’s below. Most of them are proposing to join the unfinished viaducts of the freeways. The proposals are also pushing for affordable housing in the CBD and including green spaces.
“Apart from being an eyesore, the unfinished freeways are also preventing the development of prime City-owned land. Our Integrated Development Plan sets various objectives such as leveraging the City’s assets to drive economic and social development and stimulate job creation. In leveraging City assets, the City will be the catalyst investor in these projects to create a ‘crowding in’ effect by the private sector.” – Executive mayor Patricia de Lille
