Regent route is a busy arterial route that runs through the Sea Point neighbourhood of Cape Town. Our Future Cities collaborated with Blok to construct a parklet to mitigate the road's impact and provide pedestrians with relief during the busy summer season. Previously, there were few free refreshment stops along the route. This was a crucial aspect of the project's objective.
Our Future Cities facilitated a design competition for the parklet itself and led the compliance and government permit application processes for the project. Following the implementation of the parklet, Our Future Cities conducted post-installation monitoring.
