Would you visit a village without any cars? That’s the vision for a new $900 Million to be built on the existing Blue Rock Resort in Somerset West, Cape Town, South Africa.
The project, thought to be the first
of its kind on the continent, has been designed by architecture firm Swisatec.
The R14 billion ($900 million) development will rise on the existing Blue Rock Resort in Somerset West, an area already surrounded by popular wine farms.
There are plans for 1,000 apartments, medical centers, spas, boutiques, schools and restaurants.
Cars will be limited to a main road or confined to underground parking lots. Energy efficiency will be a top priority, both through renewable energy sources and established technologies such as LED lights and water management systems.
