Located on the N1 just outside the Cape Town city limits, Century City, is a mini city network providing work, leisure and fun activities to those looking for an ultimate lifestyle away from the hubbub of the Cape Town City Centre .
The suburb is spread over 250ha and has a golf course, various residential properties and Canal Walk shopping centre.
The residential developments consist of freestanding homes on the canal, as well as high-rise apartment blocks and a retirement village.
For retail therapy, Canal Walk is one of Africa’s largest shopping centres. It includes all major stores and labels as well as a food court, top restaurants, and a skating rink and cinema. It also has four major hotels, fine restaurants, conference facilities and a Virgin Active gym.
But it’s not all tall buildings and urban sprawl. Century City is at the forefront of conservation and is an ideal eco-tourist destination. It is home to Intaka Island, 16ha of wetland conservation. The ecologically sensitive pans and reconstructed wetlands help clean the water of canals that meander though parts of Century City.
