City of Cape Town Plans To Offer Un-Used Buildings To Entrepreneurs

The City of Cape Town is considering granting rights to use, manage, control and redevelop some of its unused buildings  for business development.

The  facilities have  been identified as part of the business incubation programme which supports one of the City’s strategic intents, an opportunity city. This is in line with the Economic Development Department’s action plan for the leveraging of City assets in support of economic growth and sustainable development.

The City’s Economic Growth Strategy states that in order to realise the economic growth potential of underutilised City-owned assets, the administration will begin to release immovable property not required for municipal purposes to external private sector or non-governmental entities, either through lease or sale.

The main aim of the project is to assist and equip entrepreneurs with the necessary skills to be able to engage in economic activities and improve business standards.

In terms of Chapter 4 of the Municipal Asset Transfer Regulations, 2008 and in accordance with section 21A and 21 of the Local Government Municipal Systems Act, No. 32 of 2000, the public and interested parties or groups are given the opportunity to submit comments, recommendations or input to the municipality from 17 May 2016 to 15 June 2016.

Specific Buildings For Consideration:

  • Atlantis – Erf 4293, Wesfleur Circle, Atlantis, commonly known as the Atlantis Business Hives.
  • Nyanga – Erf 1023, corner of New Eisleben and Muller Roads, Nyanga, commonly known as the Nyanga Job Centre
