The developers envision Hopewell Conservation Estate as a retreat for professionals, business achievers and community leaders who wish to reside in the peaceful and tranquil surroundings of nature.
The land comprising Hopewell Conservation Estate and Reserve have been in family ownership for some 70 years. Located 15 minutes from Newton Park business district, Hopewell Conservation Estate offers the comforts of 21st century living in a millennia-old landscape. Residential units will be set within an expansive 3 000 hectare urban nature reserve, shared by residents, animals, birds and plants in unique sustainable relationships.
The property is located in a valuable ecological region (the Cape Floral Kingdom) and exhibits exceptional biodiversity including wetlands, Algoa grassy fynbos, subtropical thicket in the valleys, and renoster bontveld, making it ideal for supporting indigenous wildlife. Picture pincushion proteas, spekboom, wild olive, cape ash, wild rosemary, and plumbago all flourishing in 3 000 hectares of your own back yard.
Instead of converting the valuable land into urban sprawl, the developers have elected to restore and preserve the natural beauty of this environmentally significant link between the Baviaanskloof World Heritage reserve and the city of Port Elizabeth.
The entire property is owned by Hopewell Conservation (Pty) Limited, a South African company with registration No. 2008/022884/07 (“Hopewell” or the “Company”).
It is not subject to any land claims.
A 21% shareholding in the project is owned by a broad-based BEE consortium comprising Ziyakhula Investment (Pty) Limited and the Dondolo Property Trust.
