R6bn to develop Pretoria's inner city

Consortium spearheaded by veteran entrepreneur Anna Mokgokong is expected to pump R6bn into the development of a vast piece of land in Pretoria.

Durban is like any other urban space; it suffers from decay and is constantly in need of regeneration.

The huge shortage of student accommodation and decent housing close to places of work has led to property group Citiq purchasing two sets of grain silos in Newtown, with the intention of converting them into residences.

High level recognition of the critical need for entry level homes is manifesting in the regeneration of some of the country’s inner cities, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the City of Johannesburg, says Mike Bester, CEO of Realty 1 International Property Group
