​​City of Cape Town

The City of Cape Town, has through its Built Environment Performance Plan highlighted the importance of spatial transformation of this city. It has identified two important integration zones in line with the Urban Networks Strategy: Voortrekker Road Corridor and the Metro South East Integration Zones where it intends to implement its, newly approved, Transit-oriented development strategic framework. The CSP has supported this process through supporting built environment planning within the city, commissioning work to assess the readiness of their TOD catalytic projects and placing them in a project pipeline, assessing the potential of Land Value Capture to fund public transport projects, assessing the housing market and addressing the ability of the institution to engage effectively with citizens through new modalities as well as manage its delivery programme transversally across institutional silos. Specific project preparation support has been provided to the city through an Urban Land Initiative Panel review of the Voortrekker Road Corridor, a Market Assessment of the Athlone Power Station Project and most recently the undertaking of a rapid panel-based peer review of the the Conradie Better Living Exemplar Project.
