Wilson believes the ‘Harbour Arch’ development will become one of Cape Town’s greatest tourist attractions. Part of the project will include infrastructure upgrades to accommodate the Mother City’s 5-million population growth expectancy by 2050.

Once the development is complete, the group aims to set their sights on redeveloping the Culemborg site.

Harbour Arch will link the Foreshore with other areas such as CBD, the V&A Waterfront and later Woodstock.

Walking routes will be created, leading from other areas of the city to the new development and further extending the areas pedestrian conscious layout.

Once completed, the Foreshore’s newest area is expected to create roughly 20 000 jobs as well.
