Umhlanga Pearls Mall – competing for airspace

The Village has gone and Dubai is arriving on these Indian Ocean shores. These images illustrate the progress of the Pearls and Oceans developments until June 2017. (Some might differ as to whether this is progress, but each to their own). Certainly the village atmosphere is no more, with the bustle of taxis now mixing with the trucks groaning up the hill with tons of soil. Mix this in with the nouveau riche, roaring between speed bumps in their Ferraris and Lambo’s , those seeking a quiet retreat will have to look further afield.

The Oceans development will consist of a large retail complex, topped off with a high-rise hotel and an equally high-rise apartment block.

I intend to capture these developments as they proceed and more images can be found under –  Gallery, North Coast, Umhlanga development album.
