M C has won two awards for Waterfall, the largest mixeduse development in Africa as well as the largest property development in South African history. It will ultimately combine over 28,000 residential units with approximately 2.5 million square metres of GLA for commercial, retail and office space. Located on a 2,200-hectare tract of land in Gauteng, Waterfall is extraordinary in the sense that it is a ‘greenfield’ development, unaffected by the constraints of older developments and existing infrastructure. This has allowed developers and planners to create a new city from a blank slate, utilising the latest
urban design principles for infrastructure, services, open public spaces and the buildings themselves, all within the development’s secure perimeter. With both a hospital and a cemetery on site, Waterfall is literally a ‘cradle-to-grave’ development, where a community of diverse individuals can live, work and play in an environmentally conscious and technologically advanced haven. The development’s aim from its outset 26 years ago was to raise the benchmark for urban design on both a local and international level and to remain on the forefront of innovation. Having been named the World’s Best MixedUse Development for the last two years, it seems as if Waterfall is achieving this goal.
