Philippi is one of Cape Town’s larger township areas, situated 1,5 km’s from the Cape Town International Airport. There were 110,321 residents and 1,886 non-urban residents in Philippi during the previous official population census that was undertaken. However, this figure is estimated to have increased threefold since the last census.
The area was first founded in the 1980’s and is today seen by government and business as an ideal location for business related developments. It is an easily accessible area and the land earmarked for this development is situated very close to the N2, which is a main thoroughfare leading to the inner city, the N1 via the R300 and the airport.
