Proclaimed as a catalytic project by the eThekwini Municipality and supported by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs, Ntshongweni is a place that will develop organically to meet the needs of its residents, neighbours and the region as a whole. The overall development vision and framework plan of Ntshongweni integrates the development opportunities with what already exists in the area. Led by Tongaat Hulett Developments, individual projects within Ntshongweni will be undertaken by independent developers who will be guided by a big picture vision for the area, which is anticipated to take approximately 15 to 20 years to complete.
Locality of Ntshongweni
This area is the perfect location for a new mixed-use hub. The rolling hills and natural surroundings promise an exceptional quality of life for residents, and the design framework as a whole focuses on connecting people to the outdoor lifestyle to be found in and around Ntshongweni.
Development here will also connect the existing communities to infrastructure, economic opportunities, amenities and civic services. In terms of larger commercial appeal, it’s strategically situated in the SIP2 corridor, a major transport and logistics route between the port of Durban and Johannesburg. This means there is great potential to establish this area as a logistics hub, with all the related commercial services and employment opportunities that come with the opportunity.
