The house on the corner of Kloof Road and Church Road, Sea Point has been approved for demolition by the Heritage Western Cape (HWC).
The property that Sun Property Investment owns has been capped with conditions for the new structure.
According to the Atlantic Sun, there’s “the condition that the replacement building, measured from the existing ground level to the top of the roof, shall not exceed a height of 25 meters.”
The recent news follows a consultation by the HWC via the Independent Appeal Tribunal.
Ashley Lillie, the Heritage consultant, recommended that the HWC allow the demolition of the building on Erf 353 as it did not warrant protection as a heritage area in terms of Section 31 of the NHRA.”
The green light has been welcomed by the developers who plan to proceed with construction.
