An excerpt from Point Waterfront Realty so aptly describes the area.

"The trigger for the development of Durban Point can be found in the water reticulation and purification system for uShaka Marine World and the need to return that water to the sea via a canal. This led to the idea of creating a unique “waterfront city within a city” in which a system of canals forms the central spine of urban re-development and where the economic benefits of water frontage extend throughout the area.

The Durban Point Waterfront initiative is therefore not just an attempt to extend the city fabric in a banal way, nor is it intended to transform the area into an extended theme park or tourist resort. Rather, Durban Point Waterfront has become an important, well-defined and exciting additional to the city and a sought-after place to live, work and play."
