How can a township high street support local businesses and revitalise a community?
Future Cape Town completed a design concept informed by local engagement and site visits, for the introduction of a High Street in the community of Mfuleni. With the anticipated urban maturity, the route would become a central High Street, which supports existing businesses along these routes and includes formal and semi-formal businesses. An overall pedestrian and public transport focus underpins this roll out programme supported by community work groups and communication programmes. This proposal is a design-led strategy intended to promote the development of a coherent and safe, pedestrian-centred High Street in the area around the Mfuleni Taxi Rank.
