The Project Vision has been developed with the community and is as follows: “A safe, sustainable, proud and vibrant place in the heart of Khayelitsha”.
The following project principles have been adhered to:

In addition to these over-arching principles, specific urban design principles and sustainable energy principles have also been developed.
