Somerset Road forms the main thoroughfare lined by numerous restaurants, cafés, boutiques and nightclubs.
The Cape Town Stadium was constructed on Green Point Common for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Numerous infrastructural developments were made, with the upgrade to Western Boulevard and the new Granger Bay Boulevard being constructed, along with a massive investment in creating an urban park around the stadium.
