It’s hard to miss all the activity that is taking place on the site where Ratanga Junction once entertained a multitude of children and adults alike.  In the recent months, all the existing structures were demolished to prepare for a new era.

Set around a large water body and public park, the new precinct plan for the site, includes contemporary residential apartments, a retirement component, a hotel and offices.

A hard edge canal wall on the northern side of the site is currently under construction, which will form the foundation for the water-fronting mixed-use development.

Rabie director, John Chapman says the legacy of Ratanga was being honoured with the retention of much of the spectacular vegetation which had been established over 20 years.  Any vegetation that could not be re-used in the precinct has been donated to community organisations including Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital in Mitchell’s Plain to help transform it into a healing and tranquil environment.

Chapman said the Ratanga redevelopment will create an important new leisure node for Century City.

“It is envisaged that many of the current water-based sports activities, the weekly Park Run and other community events will utilise this new scenic public realm and a pedestrian bridge will link the current Brideways precinct area to the Ratanga redevelopment over the Grand Canal.’’
