This Strategic Development Framework (SDF) is a proposal for recycling the ruined grounds and derelict buildings of an abandoned cement factory in Philippi, Cape Town into a Sustainable Business and Residential Neighbourhood. The 12ha property, known locally as the old cement factory is owned by The Business Place Philippi, a Section 21 company1 established by two large companies and two NGOs: Investec Bank, British American Tobacco, the Sustainability Institute, and Abalimi.

Of relevance to food systems researchers and practitioners is the incorporation of food and agricultural spaces and cycles into the SDF.
