GR2 zoning was approved on 6th February, 2020.

Consolidation of the two sites was granted and approved on the 11th February, 2020.

Annualized Income Projection : R19,218,684

Importantly this site is situated only 500 meters from the UKZN entrance gate, UKZN Westville Campus, making it a prized investment acquisition.

Development site price : R15 million (I do believe that this price may be slightly negotiable)

In summary the development and building opportunity is as follows :

The arial plan attached below, shows the locality and position and the specific municipal zoning of the surrounding properties, in relation to the development site and the UKZN Campus.

Please note that the shacks are more than 1 kilometre away from the property and importantly, it is the cities intention to change this mango plantation settlement, into a social housing project, as part of the clean up of the areas inhabitants, who have been living there for over 30 years. There is also bush and a buffer row of residential properties between the shack dwellers and the development site.

The housing across the road and up the hill, from the development site, has been established there for many years and in fact, there is also a portion directly across the road from the developement site, that has already been developed for and is currently operating as, student accommodation. (See clause 2 in the Commentary Document below)

The vacant land that is closer to and alongside the varsity campus, is actually owned by the UKZN and has specifically been zoned for non-residential purposes. Parts of these two sites are also specified as demos, so it can never be built upon, due to indigenous grasses and local flora.

Experience Westville

Westville offers an array of different property types, sizes and styles. All in the same street one could find a dutch styled home next to a modern home with a large garden, alongside an apartment block block offering a lock-up-and-go lifestyle. This area appeals more to families, with many great schools available. However, it also appeals to young professionals, singles and the elderly who appreciate the joys of living in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood.
