Mahatma Gandhi Road is the main access road to the Point Waterfront and “uShaka Marine Park”, a 16Ha world class marine theme park developed at a cost of R735 million, being the catalyst for the extraordinary transformation of the Point precinct and the revival of the area in general. This, together with the commitment from the Metro Council in upgrading roads and buildings in the area, (with the assistance of R310 million commitment from the European Commission for capital projects in the inner city over the next three years), has seen the area being transformed from a previous slum area to a upmarket upper class niche area. The subject property falls on the periphery of the Durban Point precinct just to the south of the uShaka Marine Park car lot.
The Durban Point Waterfront precinct, the focal point of the area, in terms of rejuvenation and redevelopment is bounded by Bell Street to the north, the Indian Ocean to the east, the Harbour entrance to the south and harbour to the west. This area comprises six precincts, uShaka Marine World and a “ribbon strip” along Point Road between Bell Street to the north and Camperdown Road to the south.
The Durban Point precinct offers an upmarket secure lock up and go environment that targets a niche market where people can enjoy the open environment and close proximity to beaches and associated water sports synonymous with those found at Vetches Beach and Bells Beach.
