Massive growth in office space to boost call centre job creation

Maitland Metro will deliver over 50,000 m² of mixed-use with over 15,000 m² of commercial space in seven new buildings

The Maitland Metro urban renewal programme will result in the addition of over 50,000 square metres of space to the mixed-use node, opening up significant new job creation opportunities, especially in the HR-intensive call centre industry.

New buildings can be built to the precise specifications of business owners. In addition to the benefits of tailor-made premises, there are other significant benefits to commercial tenants and call centre operators:

  • the central location of the node
  • easy access onto major arterial routes,
  • fibre-ready precinct
  • 5G accessibility
  • close to dignified housing opportunities for employees

In addition, Maitland Metro will be home to a number of retail outlets that will be located at the base of the developments. These will offer absolute convenience for tenants, employees, and visitors alike.

Significant new job creation in the pipeline

The new commercial space being developed in Maitland Metro will transform the precinct into a re-energised hub of economic activity and an attractive place to live, work, shop and play.

Although the primary mandate of the developer is to provide inclusionary housing close to work opportunities in Cape Town, the integrated Maitland Metro plan incorporates a mixed-use node that will attract a host of new businesses and employers into the precinct.

The priorities for the area are affordability, security, safe recreational areas for both children and adults, and easy access to needed shops and amenities. City planning officials have been fully supportive of the Maitland Metro initiative as it embodies the concept of an intensified, affordable, mixed-use gateway node into the Voortrekker Road Corridor from the west, as contained in the draft Table Bay District Spatial Development Framework.

The area is perfect for HR-intensive operations such as call centres or contact centres. The success of the 2,000-employee Capita call centre proves how well this can work in the area. The development will provide new space for contact centre operators, who will have the added benefit of dignified housing opportunities for their employees in the building next door.

Ideal node for Cape Town’s burgeoning call centre industry

Maitland Metro is ideally placed to accommodate the ongoing increase in the Western Cape’s burgeoning call centre activity.

South Africa has been rated the No. 1 Offshore Contact Centre Delivery Location in the world by Ryan Strategic Advisory, overtaking traditional centres such as the Philippines and India. This success will continue in the post-Covid era as South Africa cements its reputation as the preferred destination for not only English but additional European, Australian and American clients.

Locally, the Western Cape constitutes approximately 57% of international contact centre activity in South Africa. Currently, some 67 555 agents are employed here, and this figure is anticipated to increase by a further 80 000 agents over the next 24 months.

Maitland Metro is working alongside Cape BPO to identify contact centre investors, who will be able to secure existing or new build premises, ranging from 500m² to over 10,000m², and within their targeted budgets. These premises can be custom-designed to meet call centre operators’ specifications.

Commercial and light industrial enquiries welcome
