    TELLING IT AS IT IS

    DEVELOPMENT

    Paragon: changes afoot

    NICOLE MCCAIN

    A

    proposed nine-storey development is

    a threat to the character ofObservato-

    ry, a community organisation main-

    tains.

    The development, named the Paragon,

    will consist of 188 apartments and 235 park-

    ing bays and will cater for students and

    those looking to invest in property.

    The development cost is reportedly esti-

    mated at R270m for the prime Main Road lo-

    cation near Groote Schuur Hospital and

    UCT.

    However, Observatory Civic Association

    chairperson Mark Turok says the develop-

    ment is totally out of place with the vision

    the organisation has for Observatory as an

    UrbanConservationArea, respecting the ex-

    isting character and encouraging an appro-

    priate level of densification and upgrade.

    Over 350 residents have signed a petition

    against the development.

    Turok would like to see a scaled-down

    building which will blend in with neigh-

    bouring property.

    There is potential to integrate a four-sto-

    rey building in a respectful way, instead of

    a nine-storey building designed with abso-

    lutely no respect to the existing historical

    environment or the prevailing scale, he

    says.

    Turok says most neighbouring buildings

    are single-storey heritage stock and the

    development falls on the edge of the Urban

    Conservation Area.

    He believes the development will block

    light and views of themountain and be total-

    ly out of scale.

    The building plan application is being cir-

    culated to the relevant departments for com-

    ments, says Johan van der Merwe, City of

    Cape TownMayoral Committee member for

    Energy, Environmental and Spatial Plan-

    ning.

    The application does not require any pub-

    lic participation as it complies with the

    mixed use zoning of the property.

    The National Building Regulations and

    Standards Act does not make provision for

    a public participation process in this re-

    gard, he says.

    The property also falls outside the Heri-

    tage Protection Overlay Zone, Van der Mer-

    we says.

    Rawson Developers property develop-

    ment analyst TrevorWeston-Green says the

    company is currently working with council

    to amend the current plans to something

    that council views to be in the better interest

    of the area and more in line with the town

    planning fabric and desired densification.

    No feedback has been received from the

    community, he says. We have received

    feedback from the Citywhich stemmed from

    the residents in the area, he says.

    We are aware of the conservation area

    that covers the majority of the Observatory

    area. Following councils desires, the Main

    Road precinct has been identified for densi-

    fication and was zoned to accommodate

    this.

    However, Turok maintains the communi-

    ty will make its voice heard.

    Were not asking the developers not to de-

    velop, were asking them to make changes.

    Were waiting to get the right to comment

    and raise our objections. Were asking that

    the City consider alternatives without re-

    moving anyones rights. The community al-

    sohas rights andwants to beheard,he says.

    Hookah pipes under microscope

    A

    s the use of hookah pipes in restau-

    rants and other venues becomes more

    popular, the City of Cape Town is lob-

    bying for legislative clarity on the matter.

    According to a statement, the City will be

    escalating its efforts this year for legislative

    clarity on the wide array of alternative

    smoking devices and habits that have be-

    come commonplace in South Africa.

    Benedicta van Minnen, City Mayoral

    Committee Member for Health, says earlier

    this year the City solicited legal opinion

    from the national health department about

    the use of electronic or e-ciga-

    rettes, but says this continues to

    be a grey area as there are no pro-

    visions for these items in the To-
