The State of Cape Town Central City

The State of Cape Town Central City

Investing In the Cape Town Central City

A public-private partnership, the Cape Town Central City Improvement District (CCID) was established in November 2000 by local property owners with a vision for the Cape Town CBD to rise from the “crime and grime” scenario it had fallen into, to once again become a safe, clean and caring urban environment. Today it is also a vibrant CBD for investment and is proud to be a world-class live, work, play and stay destination that is welcoming to all.
