With 2010 around the corner, many plans are being made to upgrade Cape Town's infrastructure and make the city more accessible to tourists. With the Bellville
Velodrome identified as a major fan-base for the event, the velodrome itself as well as the surrounding road access networks are scheduled for upgrades to
alleviate traffic congestion.
These upgrades will not only be beneficial to tourists, but will also greatly improve
the access to the Tyger Falls business node.
The accessibility of the Tyger Falls area is one of the main reasons that many
companies are choosing to move from Cape Town's CBD to Tyger Falls in the
Northern Suburbs. Many of their employees live in the Northern Suburbs and no
longer have to spend hours in traffic to get to work, says Johan Meyer of Rémey
The Rémey Group is responsible for the development of more than a third of the
total developable area in Tyger Falls. Their latest venture, Quarry Hill, epitomizes
accessibility, with easy access from most of the major routes and direct entry
from Carl Cronje Drive.
This commercial development consists of two buildings joined by a common basement
parking area and has a total rentable area of about 10 800m², or about 1000m² per
floor per building.
The availability of parking is another reason cited by business owners for moving away
from the city centre and setting up their businesses in Tyger Falls. Quarry Hill has
14 000m², of the total construction area of about 26 000m², to parking.
The development is situated on Carl Cronje Drive, next to Willowbridge and across the
road from Tyger Valley Shopping Centre, perfectly located to take advantage of this
growing business area. Although Quarry Hill is mainly intended for offices, some retail
space can be made available on the ground floor.
