The Foreshore is one of the Mother City’s most vibrant commercial areas, linking the premium offerings at the V&A Waterfront and the CBD – Cape Town’s traditional business hub.
A recent wave of development has seen skyscrapers rising in the Foreshore faster than Capetonians can count them. For commercial property investors and tenants, this means a world of choice when it comes to premium grade office space.
The perfect commercial location in the heart of Cape Town
With its location in between the CBD, Green Point, and Mouille Point, the Foreshore is a central location in every sense of the word.
The area offers quick access to the CBD by car or MyCiti bus. Highway onramps linking town to the northern and southern suburbs are just a few minutes away, making the foreshore ideal for business people who frequently travel around the city and local suburbs.
When travel isn’t on the agenda, the Foreshore’s dining and entertainment offerings provide excellent locations for meetings and business lunches.
A large number of brand new office buildings to choose from
The Cape Town CBD has been expanding at its fastest rate in decades, and a lot of the new developments are located in the Foreshore area.
- The flagship FNB Portside building – Cape Town’s only skyscraper – was the first of a new wave of ultra-modern buildings that have sprung up in the Foreshore.
- Commercial property tenants have a huge variety of buildings and office suites to choose from in the area’s new and renovated buildings.
This makes the area ideal for established businesses, law firms, consultancies and startups that are expanding and aiming to attract premium clients.
Despite the recent announcement that the Foreshore highway project will be suspended pending an investigation, the City of Cape Town appears to be committed to transforming the area with a mix of commercial space and affordable downtown accommodation.
As of 2018, there are no less than 35 new projects scheduled for the CBD – and these will only speed up the Foreshore’s already rapid development.
