The view from the property

THE City of uMhlathuze Municipality is opening the door to secure land in Meerensee with panoramic views of Pelican Island and the harbour for the development of The Ridge.

A conceptual urban design for the development, commissioned by the City in September last year, includes a hotel, high density residential area, park and play area, commercial and office component and access boulevards.

In the invitation to tender (on p40 of ZO Weekender 14 April 2017), the municipality states it will host a compulsory tender briefing session followed by a site inspection on 25 April.

Despite the moratorium placed on all land sales in the City in 2015 to avoid ‘land bankruptcy’, Council last month agreed to make an exemption for The Ridge as one of the municipality’s Strategic Economic Projects prioritised to attract investors, stimulate growth and create jobs.
