Cato Ridge at a glance
Cato Ridge is situated on the border of eThekwini Municipality, approximately 50 km from the Port of Durban and 30 km from Pietermaritzburg. Cato Ridge is ideally located on the N3 corridor and is the location of a planned Dry Port Facility or what has come to be known as the Cato Ridge Intermodal Hub (Inland Container Terminal).
Cato Ridge has been incorporated into the city’s expansion plans due to its location on the N3 Corridor between eThekwini and Msunduzi Municipalities and the Transnet owned and operated railway line and pipeline servitudes. Cato Ridge and Harrison Flats have as such been earmarked as a rail served inland container terminal, based on Transnet’s port expansion plans and the anticipated pressures in the port area and the South Durban Industrial Basin.
Cato Ridge is divided by the N3 with the area to the North primarily zoned Industrial, with companies such as Assmang, Safal Steel and SRF but also includes some large logistics operations such as Value Logistics and the Ellerine’s Distribution Centre. The area to the south of the N3 is currently zoned for agriculture, residential and related activities; however, it is the proposed location for the Intermodal Hub and various other logistics operations, thus making it an ideal area for investment.
Cato Ridge has a substantial supply of well-priced, level, developable land, with much of it on the Northern side already zoned Industrial. Cato Ridge is a focus area for Share-List Property who have been active in the area for the last 10 years. Give us a call for all your commercial and industrial sales and leasing requirements.
