It started as a State Owned Enterprise and is today a shining example of a public/private joint venture, owned by 1.2 million South Africans.  It is the most valuable, most popular and the greenest property on the African continent.  It is widely regarded as the best waterfront in the world and now aims to become the most inspiring.
