What sets Rabie apart from all other property developers in Cape Town and South Africa generally is our track record in developing large-scale, mixed-use property developments. Dating back to Marconi Beam in 1997, through our award-winning work at Westlake, Big Bay and Royal Ascot and in our on-going development of Century City, we have shown time and again that our holistic town planning, zoning, landscaping and development skills have succeeded in creating harmonious mega-estates in which residents enjoy a variety of leisure, retail, work and residential opportunities within a single convenient area.
In this respect, we are at the cutting edge of global trends in applying the principles of New Urbanism, as eloquently described by Richard Rogers, the co-designer of the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris and 2007 Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate:
"Cities of the future will no longer be zoned as today in isolated one-activity ghettos; rather they will resemble the more richly layered cities of the past. Living, work, shopping, learning, and leisure will overlap and be housed in continuous, varied and changing structures".
