Century City, Milnerton


Century City at a glance

Century City is situated in Cape Town, South Africa and spans 250 hectares. This vibrant suburb is meticulously designed as a mixed-use development, seamlessly integrating entertainment, residential, retail and office spaces. Nestled 10 km northeast of central Cape Town, along the N1 motorway, Century City boasts a unique landscape, intersected by a network of waterways, wetlands and picturesque canals.

Century City gives you the ultimate experience in convenience with everything at your fingertips in what is known as Cape Town's smart city. The 250-hectare precinct embodies the essence of contemporary urban living. Here, you can seamlessly integrate living, working, shopping and even staying in some exceptional hotels, all while relishing the beauty of outdoor spaces, including the acclaimed 16-hectare Intaka Island nature reserve, nestled at the core of Century City. The area truly has it all.

In the 1990s, Century City emerged on what was once wetlands and an estuary. Initially conceived as a mixed-use property, it has since evolved into a diverse community, hosting an array of businesses, schools, and dining establishments. The development's inception dates back to 1997 under Monex Development and currently continues under its new custodians, the Rabie Property Group. 

Among Century City's earliest landmarks were the Ratanga Junction theme park and the Canal Walk shopping centre. Canal Walk, which opened its doors in October 2000, was a pioneering shopping destination, holding the distinction of being the largest mall in Africa and the Southern Hemisphere, with an expansive lettable area spanning 141,000 square meters. 

In May 2018, Ratanga Junction theme park closed its doors following years of financial challenges. The site underwent redevelopment and was reborn as Ratanga Park, a recreational haven for all to enjoy.
