The upgrades will include a four-storey hotel, a nightclub, private hospital, education zone and a large stretch of retail space from old shipping containers.

CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke with Amor Strauss, Property development manager and general manager of the Philippi Village.

We already invested R100 million in phase one of the project. We renovated one third of the old cement factory and it is intended as a business precinct - a commercial facility to create space for entrepreneurs to live and grow.

Amor Strauss, Property development manager

The hub is an integrated development located at the former cement factory in Philippi that once made the cement that was in turn used to make the dolosses here for Cape Town’s harbour.
