Conradie Park is a 22.1 ha mixed-use development, primarily focused on an integrated housing scheme. A Western Cape Government BLMEP (Better Living Model Exemplar Project), one of the five ‘game-changer projects’ within the Western Cape Province, it will be an unprecedented public-private partnership that has guaranteed delivery of over 3000 housing units. These will provide homes for people from a mix of income groups, with half of all units being social housing – split between social rented (70%) and subsidized bonded housing or FLISP (30%).
Conradie Park includes an incredible public park along the Elsieskraal canal, which offers safe spaces and recreational areas, intended to stitch together the existing fabric of Thornton and Pinelands to the Conradie development. This project has required rigorous urban design efforts to ensure delivery of dignified and integrated spaces for all its user groups, and at the same time, making sure that the project remains financially feasible within its restrictive planning conditions.
