This is a joint urban regeneration project between government, the private sector, NGOs and community-based organisations situated on the eastern side of Alexandra township. The development targets people at the lower end of the housing market and aims to build sustainable typology, offering single-room accommodation with shared ablution facilities, and a common crèche and community hall. Spaces between clusters are arranged for urban agriculture and the project provides for free hot water via a solar heat exchange system as well as rainwater harvested from the roof.
