High Street Mfuleni

How can a township high street support local businesses and revitalise a community?

Future Cape Town completed a design concept informed by local engagement and site visits, for the introduction of a High Street in the community of Mfuleni. With the anticipated urban maturity, would then become a central High Street, which supports existing businesses along these routes. An overall pedestrian and public transport focus underpins this roll out programme supported by community work groups and communications programmes. This proposal is a design-led strategy intended to promote the development of a coherent and safe, pedestrian-centred High Street in the area around the Mfuleni Taxi Rank.
