Northern Suburbs Cape Town is central.
Century City north of Cape Town was constructed in 1997,and was a new beginning for young families looking for an improved lifestyle, and for corporates and businesses wanting to avoid the Cape Town city traffic. The 480ha – and growing – Century City caters for today’s social living arrangements, whereby apartments, businesses, shopping centres, entertainment and nature are all closely associated.
The northern suburbs links Cape Town to the winelands area. This fast-growing region is a blend of cluster homes and sprawling suburbs overlooking Cape Town, high up on the Tyberberg Hills and farmland.
The national N1 highway between Cape Town and Johannesburg passes through the northern suburbs.
The climate is comfortable year round. However, the cool south-easterly winds that blow in summer suit the Sauvignon Blanc vines along Durbanville’s wine route.
