Vision for the Area
The historic Renishaw farm, birthplace of the Crookes Brothers group, will be home to most of the development. Although the company’s success was built upon the pioneering work done by Samuel Crookes and his three sons in the sugar trade, the company is now fast becoming a leader in the property development industry.
As they already own vast amounts of unencumbered land, and enjoy a strong market capitalisation, the company is able to develop without the usual risks and pressures faced by other operators, and with care for the history and ecology of the area.
This forward thinking approach is characterized by an exceptionally low housing density, preserving the natural environment of the area for present and future generations and developing the land in a sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion.
Setting the benchmark for environmentally and socially responsible development.
The majority of the residential property development will take place here. A variety of lifestyle estates from starter home to retirement are planned, including the redevelopment of the existing village. The old mill site will become a popular tourist destination for artisanal crafts.
An upmarket housing development with a modern design aesthetic that will boast stunning views towards Aliwal shoal over the Amhlongwa river lagoon. A boutique hotel, shops and community club facilities are also envisaged.
This will become the social and business hub of the development. As a gateway into the area, planned facilities include a private school, shopping centre, light commercial zones, medical and office parks.
The current site of the Crocworld conservation centre, whilst mostly earmarked for conservation, will feature a resort village and luxury villas overlooking the sea. An indigenous nursery and an equestrian centre will also be located here.
