There seems to be a huge demand for a lifestyle on the coast. Families are seeking modern estates with all the latest amenities and in close proximity to the beach, nature walks and shopping centres. Located on the north coast of KwaZulu-Natal, it’s no surprise that Zimbali Lakes has attracted a lot of investor attention. Over the past three months, it has secured more than R160m in new sales across its portfolio of suites, single residential erven and planned unit development sites.
In Q4 of 2021, construction will also start on a number of lock-up-and-go and freestanding apartments, with demand for these types of units growing so much from buyers across the country that there is now a waiting list to purchase. The Zimbali Boulevard Suites (ZBS) development team has also appointed a new contractor, Concilio Group, with more than 15 years of experience in the industry. Tarring and kerbing of access roads and the installation and commissioning of services in phase 1A of the main development node should be completed by mid-September. Work on the upgrades to access roads and the construction of a circle is well under way with anticipated completion set for early Q4 of 2021. Construction of the 18-hole golf course will commence during the first quarter of 2022.
“There is a strong mix of local and semigration buyers from the inland provinces who want to work and live in their previous holiday destinations,” says McGregor. The Zimbali Lakes Resort is expected to generate more than R10bn in sales and resales over the next decade. This will help to create more jobs and stimulate the economy in KwaZulu-Natal. The development will create more than 8,000 jobs through the construction phase, and as the development reaches maturity it is anticipated to create more than 3,000 permanent jobs.
