CORNUBIA. BUILDING TOMORROW.
Cornubia is a strategically located development in the northern corridor of Durban, approximately 17 kilometres from the CBD and 7 kilometres south of King Shaka International Airport along the N2 highway. The project is jointly spearheaded through a partnership between Ethekwini Municipality and Tongaat Hulett Developments. The aim is to develop a ‘mixed use urban settlement’ comprising a range of complementary uses.
Already under development with significant investment, this forward-thinking, all-inclusive urban node is a place where business, lifestyle and retail activities thrive. A fully-integrated concept of mixed-use and mixed-income, Cornubia has emerged as a highly sought after residential and business hub that has enjoyed rapid uptake.
Cornubia is transforming the physical and socio-economic landscape of the province. It is expected to create 45 000 permanent jobs over the long term, contributing R25 billion to the national economy.

The Cornubia Industrial & Business Estate(CIBE) precinct is located on the North-Western side of Cornubia. It is bounded by the Ohlanga River adjacent to Ottawa and less than 10Km from the King Shaka International Airport.

SITE AREA: 65 Hectares
ZONING: High Density Residential
UMHLANGA HILLS is within the south-eastern portion of Cornubia Phase 2, situated north of the Cornubia Retail Park and along Cornubia Boulevard(Umhlanga Ridge Boulevard) GO!Durban route as well as the proposed Dube East arterial.
The 1200 hectare project is strategically located to the north of Durban, adjacent to Mount Edgecombe, Gateway Theatre of Shopping and uMhlanga Ridge, and is only seven kilometres from King Shaka International Airport. Within the heart of the Northern Urban Development Corridor, Cornubia has been designed in line with uMhlanga property principles. The development is especially well-suited to meet the exceptional demand for well-positioned and serviced commercial, residential and industrial land in Durban and its environs.
A BOLD DEVELOPMENT
This mixed-income development will see over 25 000 new homes being built. This proposes 10 000 affordable/middle-income units and 15 000 subsidised units. Commercial and industrial buildings make up the bulk of the property which consists of 2.5 million m². Cornubia lies between Durban’s wealthier Mt Edgecombe and Umhlanga areas and lower-income areas north of the city such as Phoenix, Ottawa and Waterloo. It is a convenient 15 kilometres south of King Shaka International airport.
Cornubia is a joint venture between the eThekwini Metro Municipality and Tongaat Hulett Development and has since been adopted by the Cabinet as a national priority project, bringing in all spheres of government as official partners. The development is expected to create 48 000 new sustainable job opportunities over a period of 15 years, and a further 15 000 during the construction phase.
The intent is to create a modern African town that offers a host of complementary uses, which augment the range of services and amenities found in the broader uMhlanga Ridge area.
