The developments altogether represent a total investment of about R23.9 billion, conservatively speaking. 

Carola Koblitz, the CCID Communications Manager spoke about how the property value of the CBD would be affected by these new developments. 

Koblitz said "The City’s last official valuation (conducted in 2014/15) being R30628 billion, the additional value of the developments reflected in the 2017 report and all of which are due to begin construction by 2020, will push the overall valuation of property in the Central City to close to double within the next five to ten years".
