platz am meer

About The Centre

Platz am Meer is a new landmark on the coastline of Namibia, offering seafront penthouses and apartments, quality restaurants and a select variety of food and fashion retailers as well as banks.

Known as a year-round destination thanks to its desert adventures, pristine beaches and an exclusive coastline, this picturesque town has a growing reputation as both a holiday destination and permanent residence while retaining its character and charm as the gem of Namibia.

Since its population has doubled since 2001 and will double again over the next 10 years, the beautiful historic “old town” of Swakopmund can no longer accommodate everyone, which is especially evident in the town’s northern expansion.

However, Platz am Meer’s developer, Safari, is confident that this lifestyle estate will become the go-to destination in Swakopmund, both for the local community and for visitors from near and far. Patrons can look forward to an “all-weather” shopping environment with ample parking sea-view restaurants, and a high- quality tenant mix catering to the unique Namibian market in a beautiful coastal environment and the pleasures it affords.

Platz am Meer offers eight luxury apartments and 28 penthouses – all linked to fashionable shopping with beachfront views, green walkways and child- friendly play areas. Apartments are elegantly finished in an open plan design, creating a light and spacious feel with floor to ceiling windows and spectacular ocean views. The superior fittings provide finishes for sophisticated tastes, while modern finishes and innovative designs offer a beautiful interior and integrated sea views and comfort.


A wide spectrum of quality retailers and restaurants bring life and leisure to this lifestyle development. In addition to Checkers as food anchor and Edgars as fashion anchor, Swakopmund will have its first Woolworths Food that will form a part of the 1 547m² Woolworths outlet, while Dis-Chem will offer a full spectrum of pharmaceutical and health products.

Platz am Meer is a Namibian landmark that the local community can be proud of, granting opportunities, employment and business initiatives that should be claimed and cultivated for the better of the people.

We are confident that the Waterfront will become a popular destination, not only attracting the community of Swakopmund to its diverse amenities and activities, but also be a destination of choice for those from other towns along the coast.
