Nestled right in the heart of Cape Town’s social activity, between prominent landmarks such as the V&A Waterfront and Signal Hill, is a suburb renowned for its beautiful terrace homes – this suburb has often been referred to as the Soho of Cape Town, but is officially known as Green Point.
Green Point has been associated with the Green Point Common as far back as the 18th Century, at which time it was known as De Waterplaats by the Dutch. This scenic expanse of land which extends from the magnificent Atlantic shoreline to the foot of Signal Hill became vested land after being granted to the Cape Town City Council in 1923 by the Union Government as Commonage. The land was then used for recreational purposes and sporting activities such as sailing regattas and cricket matches. Despite its long and often turbulent history of weathering political emancipation, slavery, Apartheid and generations of paupers and impoverished immigrant workers, Green Point has emerged as a thriving property and social hub in the Cape Town metropolitan.
With its buzzing nightlife, incredible mountain and ocean views and various small businesses and restaurants, the potential for urban development in this up and coming area was quickly recognized and embraced by property investors and developers alike. Now, years later, Green Point boasts a booming network of local businesses, social activity and Green Point real estate. Green Point is in close proximity to some of the city’s most popular attractions, including the V&A Waterfront, Sea Point and Camps Bay. This together with easily accessible surrounding areas and quaint Victorian cottages has caused a boom in Green Point property.
