Sibaya – the ultimate destination for home buyers

The release of the first few parcels of land in Sibaya - in the prime KwaZulu-Natal North Coast region - by Tongaat Hulett Developments, has been met with much anticipation and excitement. Local developers have put their hats in the ring, and the market is eagerly awaiting the outcome of the first phases of this development.

Pam Golding Properties, together with its UK-based global associate, Savills, has participated in feasibility studies for Tongaat Hulett Developments over the past 18 months. “Situated in the rapidly growing and well established northern development corridor of Durban, the potential for this world-class development is significant and the market is poised to capitalise on the considerable opportunities presented,” says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group.

“The vision for this sought after area meets international standards and with a reputable company like Tongaat Hulett at the helm, buyer interest is extremely high. Our offices are receiving calls on a daily basis for end-users wishing to be part of this new coastal hub.

“The Sibaya precinct promises to be of the highest standard, with green eco-living a priority. Mixed use nodes will offer residents convenience and accessibility as well as a ‘live-work-play’ lifestyle. There will be components of apartments, villas, commercial, retail and retirement living. Villas will be housed in secure estates, helping meet a growing demand among home buyers who increasingly prioritise security for their families.”

Sibaya is ideally located just north of uMhlanga adjacent to Umdloti. “It is literally a few kilometres away from King Shaka International Airport, and this location means that it will attract a global pool of buyers looking for a piece of paradise along KZN’s sought-after north coast,” says Carol Reynolds, Pam Golding Properties area principal for Durban Coastal. “The sub-tropical climate has always drawn people to KZN, and this, coupled with convenience, security and beautiful architecture, will make Sibaya one of the most popular places to live in the country.

“The general sentiment is that Sibaya is set to put KZN on the international map, and for the first time KZN will be able to rival the beautiful mother city, Cape Town. We anticipate foreign interest in the area as well as strong demand from buyers in other parts of the country. Commuters from Johannesburg will find the area very attractive because of its proximity to the airport. In addition, we expect locals to flock to Sibaya because it is close enough to uMhlanga to afford local residents a convenient lifestyle, and it will offer the security that most locals seek.”

She says the mix of homeowners will be diverse, with buyers expressing interest across all sectors of the market. “We have already been contacted by retirees, young families, high net worth professionals, investors, Johannesburg business executives and international buyers. Based on the interest which we are already experiencing, the market is ripe for a development of this nature.

“Over the past few years the KZN northern coastal belt has experienced unprecedented growth, and with the hype around the launch of Sibaya, we believe that KZN is set to become the destination of choice.”
