About Us

Located in Umhlanga Rocks on the north coast of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, Ridgeside is a four-phased development that will effectively link the Umhlanga Ridge to the Umhlanga Rocks village. The site consists of 140ha of land nestled within a rough triangle created by Umhlanga Rocks Drive and two major highways, the M4 and the M41. A ribbon of coastal forest runs along one boundary while a valley dissects the development as a whole. In keeping with Tongaat Hulett Development’s commitment to environmentally sustainable and sensitive developments, this 40ha ribbon will be preserved as green space. The overall development supplements the Umhlanga Ridge Town Centre node and fosters the creation of an integrated, people-centred mixed-use environment. As an extension of the Umhlanga Ridge, Ridgeside will provide an interface with the existing areas of Umhlanga Ridge Town Centre, La Lucia Ridge Office Estate, The Manors, Lower La Lucia and Umhlanga Rocks village.
