Morgen's Village I & II
The homes were financed by accessing the institutional government subsidy and making use of a top-up amount which is repaid through an Instalment Sales Agreement (IPA) over a period of 12 years.
All houses consist out of 2 bedrooms, combined kitchen/living area and a bathroom with ample space available for extensions. These units are seen as “start-up” houses, targeted at individuals qualifying for state housing subsidy as well as a top-up loan.
Royal Maitland I & II
Although this is a sectional title scheme and not a social housing project, this scheme shows what can be done. It is easily conceivable as a social housing scheme in its layout, design and contribution to the renewal of an urban area.
The project is centrally located to the Central Business District (CBD) of Cape Town (±10km) in the neighbourhood of Maitland that has traditionally single storey units on medium size plots. Royal Maitland was the first new big project to be built in this area for 20 years. With the modern low rise approach, the complex fits well into the urban fabric of this area and provides a fresh focus.
As a SAHF award winning development, this project offered 168 and 100 sectional title units, 24 hour security, laundry facilities and a safe playing environment for children. Units consist out of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom loft apartments with ample parking and private open space.
Dan Pienaar Circle
CTCHC acted on behalf of the City of Cape Town as implementing agents for the first land restitution project in Cape Town.
The 36, two bedroom units have been constructed by means of a Light Weight Steel Frame System, within the neighbourhood of Plumstead. This is the second project by CTCHC, making use of innovative technology.
This system allowed for significant consumer savings, elimination of wet trades and a significant reduction in site supervision and on-site cost.
A forensic audit conducted by the NHBRC was subsequently commissioned with the Department of Local Department and Housing making available funds for this rectification process.
The above rectification has been completed in 2009.
