Doing business at the V&A Waterfront
This mixed-use waterfront development attracts 24 million visitors per year, and is situated in the country’s oldest working harbour. Since 1988, when it was a gritty working harbour, it has been transformed into a desirable retail, leisure, commercial, residential and entertainment destination with over 450 stores, over 80 restaurants, ten hotels and 600 residential units. There are approximately 17 000 people who work in the Waterfront. Office space and space for shops and eateries can be leased in the waterfront. There is also some property (mostly residential) that can be purchased as an investment. The setting in the middle of a working harbour makes the V&A Waterfront unique, and yachts, passenger liners, pleasure boats, fishing vessels and other passing shopping traffic contribute to the atmosphere.
