The New City of the West

Countdown to the Opening of Westown Square
on 27 March 2025 at 09h00

A ground-breaking locally driven development, Westown is a brand-new destination in the making, one that connects people with spaces and experiences, bringing new opportunities to live, work and thrive.

A mixed-use property and lifestyle development perfectly positioned off the N3 between Pietermaritzburg and Durban, Westown is an active construction site, with the first phase of the development, the retail hub of Westown Square, planned for opening on 27th March 2025.

Westown is designed around the high-street retail experience of Westown Square which is supported by a number of interconnected precincts, spaces, and experiences that together form the 100ha Westown Urban Core. 

Planned as a managed urban environment, Westown will not only integrate with existing outdoor and lifestyle activities and facilities in the area but enhance them with the rehabilitation of sugar cane into an active indigenous green belt.

A development by the Fundamentum Property Group, Westown is the new City of the West and the new economic hub for Durban’s Outer West. It is set to generate some R15 billion in investment over the next 10 to 15 years – R1,3 billion of which has already been triggered through the Westown Square retail experience which is under construction.
