WATCH: Where is the heart of Cape Town?

A video interview series by Future Cape Town, shot in 2011, unpacking the concept of liveability under various themes including the definition of liveability, transport, events, densification, tourism and urban form.

In our third Liveable City video we asked thought leaders in our community the question “Where is the heart of Cape Town?” Almost everyone answered that the heart of Cape Town was the city centre.

What makes the city centre the heart of Cape Town? Our thought leaders answered this by saying that it is a place where there is opportunity available for doing business and that more then 40% of the GDP is generated through Cape Town’s city centre.

Andrew Boraine says that “the key is not so much what is the centre but it’s how do you connect all those centres together.”

What would you say the heart of your city is? Let us know by commenting below.
