Wescape is a proposed development project located in the north-west area of the City of Cape Town, South Africa. The Wescape development, proposed by urban development company communiTgrow, is 3,100 hectares (31 square kilometres) and once completed will reportedly include 200,000 houses, 400 education facilities (schools, crèches and colleges), 370 public service facilities (such as libraries and clinics) and 15 sports complexes.
The companies behind the Wescape development state that it will be worth R140 billion and create 300 000 jobs over 20 years. The developer, communiTgrow, describes the Wescape community development model as incorporating industry, technology, food security, infrastructure, waste processing, energy reduction and production in a holistic manner, minimising environmental impact from urban growth. ‘Green lung’ public spaces will be integrated into residential nodes and community areas.
