The new marina basin forms a central focus to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront development in Cape Town and serves to bring the harbour and the city closer together The new marina basin at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront development in Cape Town, winner of the 1996 Cape Town Regional Award for Excellence in Civil Engineering and a nominee for the SAICE National Award last year, was constructed in an area previously known locally as the lower tank farm and, before that, the old quarry.
