The American e-commerce giant, Amazon, has recently come under spotlight as it would now be wandering it’s e-commerce operations into the African economy in South Africa specifically.

The company has submitted plans of a mixed-use development in which it intends to construct commercial and residential facilities over a 150,000 square metre expanse of land in a city of Cape Town called River club.

This whole project is expected to gulp about $280 million and is expected to create 5,239 jobs while in construction and about 19,000 indirect and induced jobs while in operation.

Some of the facilities in the development include office space, retail space, hotel, gym, restaurant, conferencing, School, event space and a center for the Amazon e-commerce business.

Although the project has not been fully approved by the relevant government regulatories as it comes in stages but the government has shown interest and readiness to accommodate the company and make things work out.

It is important to note that Amazon already has its web services (AWS) arm currently running in the country hence it shouldn’t be hard to create some rapport with the necessary bodies to make the development a reality as it would take about three to five years to complete constructions.
