Dr. Kennedy Okonkwo, a top player in affordable real estate in Nigeria has featured on the November edition of Forbes Africa where he revealed that long term partnerships between private and public sector is key to improving housing gap in Nigeria.

The opportunity for African countries in supporting the growth and development of their affordable housing industries is immense and transformative.

Africrest Properties intends to be one of the top 10 largest residential middle-income landlords in Gauteng within the next 5 years.

Bridge City is set to become the centrepiece of an affordable housing development that will see more than 350 units being developed with the first ones being up for sale towards the end of next year.

Idea to help solve housing crisis in Cape Town shortlisted.

Capital Mall – the R1.2bn corner stone of the ‘Capital City’ mixed-use development is all systems go.

RICS (the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) has launched the Cities for our Future Challenge, calling on young people to come up with fresh, new ideas to help tackle the most pressing problems affecting cities in Africa and around the world.

Construction of a landmark affordable housing project at Bridge City is due to start within weeks, marking another step toward realising the development’s bold vision.
