A fervent desire to reduce both monthly costs and traffic-congested travel times while residing in conveniently situated nodes has given rise to the ongoing success of the live-work-play lifestyle in South Africa.

One thing is certain, apart from the overall inflationary impact, the spiralling cost of fuel directly impacts on the demand for conveniently situated, sectional title property in key economic hubs – close to the workplace, schools and all amenities.

After an unexpectedly tough 2018, but with the welcome announcement that the repo rate remains unchanged following this first MPC meeting of the year, the outlook for 2019 is somewhat brighter.

[28 September 2018] Park Square, uMhlanga’s newest business and lifestyle development is due to open its doors in November 2018. Interfacing beautifully with its surrounds, the development offers a future-forward, people-centred destination where the surrounding communities and professionals can shop, work and connect.

“Overall many key African hotel markets reflected a positive turnaround in tourism in the first half of 2018,” says CEO of HTI Consulting, Wayne Troughton. “Though many of these markets continue to trade off a low base, the positive growth in room nights sold bodes well for future occupancy increases and hotel supply,” he states.

Roads are the hallmark of a progressive society and have profound impacts on the communities they serve. The almost complete Mount Edgecombe N2/M41 Interchange at uMhlanga on KwaZulu-Natal’s rapidly expanding North Coast, is one such development that will have a significant impact on this area’s urban quality and spatial connectivity.

Twelve million people spent nearly R2 billion at Ballito Junction Regional Mall during its first year.

Globally, people are prepared to pay a premium for properties in suburbs that have good schools, says Gareth Bailey, Pam Golding Properties area principal for Durban Coastal.
