City Council of Cape Town (CCCT) is planning to undertake the Athlone Power Station Site Redevelopment project in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa.
The project involves the redevelopment of 36ha Athlone Power Station site. It includes the demolition of two existing cooling towers and the construction of a mixed-use complex. The project includes the construction of 821 flats and 356 units of group housing, commercial and business area, food market, retail facility, restaurants, and parking facility.
In the first quarter of 2008, CCCT issued a tender to appoint a team to undertake a high-level pre-feasibility assessment of a range of redevelopment options for the site as a precursor to commissioning detailed investigations and development proposals.
In the third quarter of 2008, a joint venture comprising Aurecon and ODA were appointed to undertake the pre-feasibility study. After 22 months of investigation and analysis, and an extensive public participation process, the CCCT has finalized its study for the redevelopment of the Athlone power station site.
In May 2010, Jet Demolition (Pty) Ltd was appointed as demolition contractor to demolish the two cooling towers. The demolition works on the project were completed in August 2010.
The funding for the study phase of the project was secured from the National Treasury under the Neighbourhood Development Partnership Grant (NDPG).
