The Friday Stand-In 2016

Capetonian urban revivalist Bulelwa Makalima-Ngwewana is your #FridayStandIn

Chief executive officer of the Cape Town Partnership, Bulelwa Makalima-Ngewana, is a town planner with extensive experience in managing and coordinating public-private partnerships.

An urban revivalist at heart, she has spent the last ten years with the Cape Town Partnership managing, developing and promoting Cape Town’s Central City.

She has been making sure that the City is a thriving creative economic hub, and places high value in public and private space in which to live, work and play.

Bulelwa was also one of the key role players in developing Cape Town’s Central City Development Strategy (CCDS) in 2008, which puts forward a shared vision to guide future developments in Cape Town until 2018. As CEO of the Partnership, she is the key driver of this strategy.

She has also been central in Cape Town’s World Design Capital 2014 bid.

She shared with Eusebius Mckaiser why she calls herself an urbanist.

The way upper cities were designed was that there will always be a separation in terms of races, that grows into a class separation, making it difficult for communities to integrate.
