New university in Durbanville set to increase property value in the area


Massive growth predicted for the Northern Suburbs property market

An article sourced from Fin24 states that Stadio (part of the Curro education group), the JSE-listed investment holding company that focuses on investments in higher education institutions, is set to develop a new and comprehensive campus outside Cape Town at Phesantekraal in Durbanville after finalising a transaction for a site of 7.8 hectares.

The company – in a written statement – said it aims to start with this development by March 2019 and to have the campus up and running by February 2021.

Stadio CEO Dr Chris van der Merwe said that the ultimate vision of Stadio is to create a multiversity for 100 000 students.

“We believe that there is ample room for expansion as 100 000 students will only be 5% of the total higher education market in South Africa.”

The new Phesantekraal campus coincides with the accreditation of Stadio’s first doctoral degree in Business Administration (DBA) with a further two doctoral degrees in the offing.

Stadio listed on the JSE in October 2017 with approximately 13 000 students. The company said it has the potential to reach 30 000 students in 2018, considering that acquisition targets for 2017 were fully met and keeping in mind that there is also an intake at the beginning of the second semester of 2018.

According to Stadio’s prelisting statement, a target of 56 000 is set for 2026.

Excellent value to be found in property in this area

While property in the Durbanville area is already valuable, it is well worth investing in new, or holding onto existing, property in this area.

Amazing capital growth – stats show 100% capital appreciation over the past decade.
According to the latest Lightstone report, the area in which Graceland is situated has enjoyed exceptional capital growth over the past 10 years – more than doubling in value during that period.
