Live, work play - the best mixed precinct suburbs in Cape Town

The Cape realty development boom in Cape Town is still going strong - and it’s not just the CBD that’s being transformed. The successful redevelopment of central Cape Town, with its focus on secure, stylish mixed use properties, has spread throughout the city.

From Kenilworth to Kalk Bay, the Mother City’s newest
residential properties include spaces for living, dining, shopping, and working - sometimes all in the same street or building.

If you’re tired of rush hour traffic and getting up at 5AM to go to work, a mixed precinct may be the perfect place to live. Here are some of the up and coming ones in Cape Town.

Claremont CBD

Claremont has always been a popular area with Cape Town families - and now the suburb has a new lease on life.

  • With office space in the CBD becoming more expensive and difficult to secure, companies are flocking to new commercial buildings in Claremont.
  • This has led to new restaurants, shops, and leisure spaces opening in the area.
  • UCT has also expanded its student accommodation network toward Kenilworth, making Claremont a prime location for investment properties.

As more people choose to work in Claremont, the demand for residential properties in the area is booming.

With the office just a short bicycle ride, bus ride, or even walk from home, a property in Claremont may be the perfect choice for you.

Century City

Located north of the CBD, Century City is a modern, carefully planned development that offers secure, estate style living and state of the art commercial buildings.

The Century City Mall is one of Cape Town’s flagship shopping centres, offering everything from fine dining and luxury brands to well-stocked supermarkets and convenient food court lunches.

The redevelopment of Ratanga Junction from theme park to residential estate will bring new properties into the Century City market.
