Kleinmond Harbour Development, KleinmondUrban Design

This project, a joint appointment between MEYER+VORSTER and KLG Architects, originated from an Urban Design Framework preparedby the consultant team for the Harbour Road area in Kleinmond, Western Cape. The client is a public-private partnership between theOverberg Municipality, private land owners and a disenfranchised fishing community who was the subject of a forced removal from thearea in the sixties. A high quality pedestrianised environment has been designed which overlooks the upgraded Kleinmond FishingHarbour. The development is focused around an upgraded Harbour Road and a new Harbour Square, with over 30 000m2 of newdevelopments rights approved as part of this project. Retail and Restaurants are being accommodated around the square, while 180residential duplexes are planned for the areas overlooking the rehabilitated wetlands. A portion of the public environment upgrading hasalready been completed together with the first buildings.
