CBD Port Elizabeth & Uitenhage
The inner city revitalisation of Port Elizabeth that began with the conversion of Govan Mbeki Avenue, the city's main road, into a pedestrian precinct, and that of Parliament Street into a popular area for dining out. There is a Strand Street upgrade with a major access route linking the CBD and the harbour; and the Donkin Reserve, a green space with stunning views. The historic Market Square in Uitenhage has also been rejuvenated.
There is no doubt that the face of Nelson Mandela Bay has changed dramatically in recent years. The development agenda underlying this visible transformation, and indeed informing all the MBDA’s work, is very clear: to deliver catalytic projects that generate a positive economic and social impact, making Nelson Mandela Bay an attractive place to live, work, play and invest.
