Petzer - 2014 - Skeptic City-1Download my report Skeptic City as an example of my academic writing. Skeptic City was a very brief report on Century City, a large planned community fairly near to Cape Town’s Central Business District. My report sought to make the point that the urgent need for any category of new housing in Cape Town – a city which grew by 29% in population in the decade to 2011 – outweighs the negative consequences of gate community development in the case of Century City, because it is the only well-situated affordable housing in our central city.
