Enhancing a quaint suburb of Stellenbosch

Paramount to The One's vision, is to ultimately enhance this quaint suburb by making it more pedestrian-friendly and in doing so, create a café culture atmosphere along it’s beautiful tree-lined streets.

In a Stellenbosch first, over R35 million has been raised and earmarked by a group of developers in the area to build towards this vision and amplify the suburb, as well as improve its accessibility to campus. The funds will be allocated to 11 projects that range from major security enhancements, to local area infrastructure upgrades for all who reside in the area.

This desirable location, well on its way becoming the next Stellies student hub, has likeminded developers already taking advantage of The One’s entrance into the area by purchasing existing houses in the precinct for further student development.
