She’ll also be shopping up a storm with her V&A gift card, along with her other voucher prizes from Adidas, Cape Union Mart and K-Way all valued to a total of R28 000.

Weekly footfall update

Annual comparison of footfall for the neighbourhood over this period is trending upward which is pleasing. Areas such as Watershed are seeing a positive movement of visitors, and the same is noted across the Swing Bridge at the Clock Tower, reflecting an increase in movement from commercial offices staff as well as from the city into the Waterfront. It being the week of Valentine’s Day, our leisure attractions were notably busy.  Average daily footfall over seven days now sits at 44k people per day.
