As part of the development of Flamingo Centre & Modderfontein Junction, the Nevada urban planning team has taken the comfort and well-being of employees and neighbours into consideration when fine-tuning the site.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT ZONES
Dedicated Taxi parking areas have been created to maintain order in the compact town centre. This area is kept clean and safe and out of the flow of traffic or entrances to both centres and estates. In addition to zoning, seating and shade has been implemented to make the waiting times as comfortable as possible for those using the system.
Indigenous trees have been planted in the centre parking, to supply shade to those visiting the centre as well as to complement the surrounding natural wetland. These trees will somewhat camouflage the buildings in time to come, encouraging the natural flow of vegetation between park and commercial land.
- 43 Riverbush willows – shade trees with the fast changing leaf colour from Autumn to Spring
- 8 White stinkwood street trees to match the existing White stinkwoods and create a rhythm along the sidewalks
- 42 September bushes and small myrtle leaf milkwort tree with mauve coloured flowers most of the year.
- 34 Fruit trees (lemon and lime) were also planted in custom-made pots placed around the shopping centre.
Many more are yet to come. Watch this space.
