Unique Mixed-Use Development to Open in Blouberg

Eden on the Bay, an innovative African-themed beachfront mixed-use development, is set to open soon on Blouberg's Big Bay

Soon no visit to Cape Town
will be complete without a stopover at the Mother City’s most exciting new beachfront destination – Eden on the Bay – which will officially open at the end of March 2009.

Eden on the Bay is being hailed as the first of its kind in South Africa – a mixed-use development where one can live, work and play – only 50 metres from a world-class beach, and 20 minutes from Cape Town city centre. (Those who want to reach “paradise” even more quickly can make use of Eden on the Bay’s helipad.)

The 25 000 m2 development, with its stylish finishes and West Coast charm, consists of a lifestyle centre (with world-class restaurants and convenience stores), AAA-grade offices, luxury apartments and penthouses.

But what really sets Eden on the Bay apart is the fact that it is situated right on Blouberg’s Big Bay, one of South Africa’s most popular water sport beaches, boasting the classic “post-card view” of Table Mountain and Robben Island.

Perhaps Gafoor Kahn, one of the developers, has said it best, “There is nothing that separates Eden on the Bay from the sea, only the beach.”

The highlight of the refreshingly different retail mix is a cosmopolitan selection of eateries including Moyo (opening September 2009). At Moyo, guests will literally be dining at the edge of the bay, their feet soaking in the refreshing water of the knee-deep pool.

If they prefer, they could lounge in the Jacuzzi at the cocktail bar, or take the lift up to the view deck, from where they’ll be astonished by incredible African sunsets – and by how close they are to Robben Island and the living beauty of the Bay.

The setting, the iconic mountain view, the sensual African dishes, the unique Moyo atmosphere and the tables anchored in water are soon to become beautiful reality.

Other restaurants, with expansive views of Table Mountain, include big names like Ocean Basket and Ciao Baby Cucina. Like Moyo, these restaurants will all have outside seating, spilling out onto a large deck bordering a lawned public picnic area.

The retail offering represents all the categories, from a food court, service outlets, surfing and adventure, fashion and accessories, health and beauty and ATMs.

Eden on the Bay will be anchored by Pick n Pay Family Store and Clicks Pharmacy. Service outlets include Flight Centre, Interafrica Bureau de Change, Laundry@Eden, Blue Mountain Internet Café, MTN and ATMs representing the four major banks.
