Iconic R1.3bn uMhlanga development complete
Four years since announcing the revolutionary concept of uMhlanga Arch, 6 October marked the official opening of the first phase of the development. The uMhlanga Arch has redefined city living, introducing a dynamic lifestyle to South Africa and transformed KZN’s landscape. The development is a joint venture between the Multiply Group and Devmco Group.

The opening of the development will welcome residents and visitors to the smart-ready apartments. The Legacy Yard and Backyard promises to be a hive of activity as the food hall serves up exquisite cuisines and flavours from around the world. The European-inspired high street will have a number of bespoke, local retailers open shop including proudly South African fashion and jewelry stores as well as beauty and wellness specialists.

“This is the moment we have all been waiting for and we can’t wait to welcome homeowners and the public to what has become one of South Africa’s most iconic developments to enter the property market. UMhlanga Arch was initially an idea roughly drawn on a napkin, to think that this idea inspired the development of a world-standing and game-changing property that has challenged conventional architectural trends and ultimately raised the benchmark,” said Mark Rosenberg, uMhlanga Arch visionary and executive partner of Multiply Group.  

Within the first two months of development, uMhlanga Arch curated 400 permanent jobs, thereafter the numbers peaked at 1 300 individuals working on site everyday throughout most of 2018, 2019 and into 2020 until the national lockdown in March. Work resumed in June with 1 100 workers on site daily.

“Our goal was not only to introduce a revolutionary development but to change the lives of the community. Throughout the project development the Multiply Group and Devmco Group have actively engaged with City leaders, businesses and communities to ensure that local and foreign investors realise the vast potential that KwaZulu-Natal has to offer. This R1.3 billion development has far-reaching effects in bolstering tourism, stimulating investment into the region, further elevating uMhlanga and greater Durban to a world-class standing and has already facilitated significant job creation to date,” said Rosenberg.

MEC of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs Nomusa Dube-Ncube said: “I congratulate the developers of uMhlanga Arch for showing a vote of confidence in KZN. This is a new trendy R1.3 billion development near the Gateway super-regional mall in the province. The official opening of restaurants in the food court is very exciting. Our entities, KZN Tourism Authority and Trade Investment KZN have ensured that we collaborate with investors, key stakeholders such as the trade, major tour operators, airlines and hotels to promote packaged deals to encourage travel into the province."
