25 May 2016 8:42 AM
The property landscape in the city centre is constantly changing. These new and old projects are set to pump value in the CBD.

There's a great deal of development taking place in the city centre, it's often hard to keep up.

The Cape Town Central City Improvement District (CCID) has released a report on the growth of business in the CBD.

According to CCID communications manager Carola Koblitz, there has been more investment in the CBD.

It reconfirms the confidence that both the public and private sector have in the CBD.
