A magnificent stretch of coastline North of Tinley and the Club Med Resort site, uSetheni offers appealing opportunities aimed primarily at the residential market, and in line with the natural expansion movement unfolding on the glorious North Coast. This site is perfectly positioned to curate an integrated lifestyle offering that is truly spectacular. With one of the most pristine coastal estuaries in the region, bountiful reefs and exquisite natural assets endemic to the region, this stretch of coastline is breathtaking and remarkable in every sense.
This historic site located on the south bank of the uMvoti River is surrounded by conservancies and farms. With records dating back to just after the First World War, Jex Estate and its contribution to the early beginnings of the sugar industry, are significant. The property is part of a natural geographical feature, having the uMvoti river estuary and indigenous dune bush with Bhengu Forest as part of its biomes. With direct beach access to 2km of untouched beach frontage, it offers a sanctuary for wildlife and forms part of an important Marine Protection Programme.
This accessible, aspirational, large-scale, mixed-use development concept of circa 500 hectares incorporates opportunities including industrial, commercial, retail, residential, educational and institutional land uses. Ideally positioned between the N2 and the start of KwaDukuza, this development will bring a New Town Centre offering within a well-planned and managed precinct to a currently constrained urban landscape.
Rich in culture and history, the region of KwaDukuza (locally referred to as Dukuza or Duguza) was home to King uShaka, the founder of the Zulu nation. It was the home of Chief Albert Luthuli, past president of the ANC and Nobel Peace Laureate. The famous white Zulu chief John Dunn lived and farmed in the area and KwaDukuza has a memorial to King uShaka at his final resting place after his assassination in 1828.
Lakeside is focused on community and will aim to enhance the site’s natural beauty; with its body of water, surrounding hillsides, established trees and open spaces, forming a green lung for the surrounding neighbourhood, in a safe and secure community.
Set adjacent to the hustle and bustle of Groutville – with currently 250 000 residents – this local area is constrained by growth due to rapid urbanisation. The location of Gledhow Mount allows for a high-density, mixed-use node with a retail core as the anchor. This offers convenience for its residents and an agreeable infill development that will integrate Groutville with Stanger.
