There are new apartment and hotels buildings springing up within the city centre. But what does this mean for the development of the city?

With the influx of these buildings, will Capetonians start seeing apartment prices becoming more affordable or is this another way for these companies to make more money out of cash-strapped Cape Town residents?

Rob Kane of the CCID explains what the Cape's building boom could mean for property developers and residents.

I do think that the residential market has run hard and it is now cooling down and I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing.

Rob Kane, CCID chairman

There's still a huge demand in the city for people to live there so I don't think you are going to see any empty apartments.
