Durban benefits from World class Point Waterfront
The Point Waterfront Development promises to be one of South Africa's flagship real estate developments. According to Logie Naidoo, Durban's Deputy Mayor, the point will do for Durban what the V&A Waterfront has done for Cape Town. THis unique development with it's Venetian canal system, open recreational areas, harbour and sea frontages will be a waterfront city within a city.
Preparation work on the 1.5 billion rand project to widen the harbour entrance has already started and will be in full swing in the next 12 months. This will allow bigger vessels and international cruise liners to use the Durban port more effectively.
The small craft harbour between Vetchie's Pier and the harbour entrance, with all the recreational facilities has also been approved by the Ethekweni Council.
As the good news about the Point Waterfront is spreading and the development is taking shape, more and more sold signs are going up, reflecting the huge recent demand for property in the unique area.
The latest development, "East Point", is launched this week by RE/MAX Panache. Facing the harbour entrance and the harbour, this ultra modern development by Dean Jay Architects comprises of 18 Double volume 2 bedrooms en suite, loft style apartments and 3 luxury penthouses. Unparalleled finishes of the highest quality with floor to ceiling and wall to wall glazing will ensure amazing panoramic views from all the apartments.
In spite of prime location, world class views and the premium finishes, these units are still very competitively priced. East Point affords a fantastic return not only as an investment, but also as a lifestyle.

Rope Shed, Point
Built in the 19th century, it is a well-preserved building and a relic from the days of the sailing ships when rope replacements were constantly in need.

According to the Cambell Collections, Alexandra Square used to be a cargo loading and recieving point during the Boer War. The rejuvenated square will house memorials to the Boer war period that were of significance to the point as well as a rememberance of Ghandi, for it was at Alexandra square that he stood by and helped protest against the imminent destruction of the Indian households at the point
Firstly, a closer look at the dramatis personae; Amuster of those who had gathered at Alexandra Square to destruct the landing of the Indians reflected that there were nearly a thousand railway men. The yacht club, the point club and rowing club had 150 in attendance, carpenters and joiners 450, printers 80, shop assistants about 400, tailors and saddlers 70,builders and bricklayers 200 and from the general public, about a 1,000.
But far more ominous was the recruitment by the whites of over 500 blacks armed with sticks which they brandished whilst singing war songs.
(Natal Advertiser, January 15, 1897).
Before the meeting this crowd of over 5,000 had lined the entire waterfront and as the Naderi and the Courtland approached, the crowd moved to the North Pier and thereafter moved to Alexander Square.
