Project outline

We worked with City Soiree, an innovative events management company, to conduct a study into the feasibility and demand for a pop-up market in Bellville. The GTP identified this as a potential catalytic project. Considering the wide array of available markets in the area, and the demands of residents, suitable sites were deemed a public park, where a special permit was required to operate a market. 


  • Commissioning Agent: Greater Tygerberg Partnership
  • MoC Role: Appointed by the lead contractor City Soiree.
