The KZN coastline is experiencing increasing development potential as buyers seek out secure, all-inclusive coastal estates. A recent article published by Seeff Properties Group addressed the rising demand for coastal property, with development opportunities on the KZN South Coast set to drive property market growth. The overriding reason for this uptick in demand for coastal properties seems to be the incredible lifestyle these areas facilitate. The small towns dotted along the KZN coast offer some of the most beautiful scenery and the area is home to many Blue Flag beaches, top surfing and diving spots, and at least 11 golf courses. It’s also renowned for its excellent sub-tropical climate and beautiful plant and animal life.
Accordingly, the South Coast is going through somewhat of a revival, with residents and local businesses stepping up to help clean and restore areas. Pair this and the above with accessible property prices and several multi-million-rand developments underway, and it’s no wonder so many are looking to relocate to the South Coast permanently or semi-permanently.
The Renishaw Coastal Precinct has launched multiple property development sites over its 2.6-million square metres on the KZN mid-South Coast, expected to attract significant investor interest. Self-reliant in terms of water supply, sanitation and soon-to-be power generation, Renishaw Coastal Precinct comprises a mix of environmentally and socially responsible residential, educational, medical, commercial, retail, and light industrial projects. What makes the precinct particularly appealing to residents and investors alike is the 1000ha of conservation land we have reserved to protect and nurture the beautiful indigenous fauna and flora in the area.
Before we get into the exciting property development opportunities currently available at the precinct, here are five compelling reasons to invest in Renishaw Coastal Precinct as a property developer:
1. Value for money
The KZN mid-South Coast offers affordable investment opportunities, at a fraction of the cost of other coastal locations in KZN.
2. Self-reliant & secure
The entire precinct is set to be a completely self-reliant, secure, and sustainable commuter town, offering residents everything from secure water provision and sanitation to fibre optics, healthcare and education.
Renishaw Coastal Precinct is situated just 40 minutes from Durban. The N2 provides direct access via the national road to King Shaka International Airport with the relaunch of Margate Airport having enhanced the area’s accessibility too, with direct flight access from Johannesburg.
4. Quality of life
The KZN mid-South Coast is renowned for its laid-back outdoor lifestyle. The region boasts several seaside attractions with Scottburgh Beach being ideal for swimming, surfing, and sunbathing. The area is also home to two of the world’s top dive sites located nearby at Aliwal Shoal and further south, Protea Banks.
The precinct is home to the Heritage Village, consisting of 35 houses originally built for farm employees. There’s great potential to upgrade these homes and build additional units within this historical village, with allowances for retail activities in the old Renishaw Mill area overflowing with potential for artisanal bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants, and farm stalls.
So, what development sites are currently available at Renishaw Coastal Precinct? We have two in particular that have great potential for residential estate developments, with many more just about to receive approval.
