Maritime Place: A seamless blend of modern living and historical ambience



In a bold and innovative move, Rawson Developers is paving the way for expanded residential options in the historic industrial heartland of Paarden Eiland, Cape Town.

This announcement marks an exciting chapter in the area’s ongoing transformation, as this will be the first significant residential block introduced into the neighbourhood.

Although Paarden Eiland still houses various workshops and businesses, the area has been witnessing a gradual shift towards mixed-use development. While maintaining its vibrant industrial character, a blend of residential properties, offices and retail spaces is being introduced, signalling a new era of development for the region.

As part of this transformation, Maritime Place – Rawson Developers’ new residential project – serves as a beacon of modern living in this historically industrial area. It harnesses the area’s unique charm and advantageous location, providing a residential experience that combines the best of both urban living and historical ambience.

As the area continues to flourish and reinvent itself, Maritime Place serves as a testament to Paarden Eiland’s ongoing relevance and resilience in Cape Town’s ever-evolving landscape.


This development is not just a new chapter for Paarden Eiland but also a significant stride towards boosting residential options within Cape Town.
