Central City Development Strategy, Cape TownUrban Design

MEYER+VORSTER was part of a multi-disciplinary consortium to develop guidelines for Land-Use Management at the City of Cape Town as part of the Cape Town Inner-City Development Strategy (CCDS). The purpose of the study was to translate the private and public sector development visions, aims and frameworks in to a set of clear guidelines that provides a consistent basis for development decision making by public officials. As part of this, the study presented a vision for the future development of the Inner City, which took into account general urban form issues and set out a number of future development height scenarios. The project also focused on how to translate urban design good practice into tangible land use management tools.
