GREENVILLE GARDEN CITY PHASES ONE & TWO: 1 140 BNG HOMES COMPLETED AND HANDED OVER
To date 1 140 Breaking New Ground (BNG) houses have been built and handed over to their new owners in Phase One and Two of Greenville Garden City, the 767ha new town in Fisantekraal.. All the recipients of the houses are former backyard dwellers or occupants of informal housing in the area, and have never owned property before.
Phase Two will be completed in February 2020 and Phase Three internal services, that have already started, will be completed in January 2020. Construction of houses will commence in February 2020.
Launched in March 2016, Greenville is, in its first stages, a private/public partnership between the City of Cape Town, the Provincial Government and non-profit residential developer, Garden Cities.
The entire suburb will eventually comprise 16 000 homes across the entire economic spectrum, and include bonded housing, but the initial stages will concentrate on providing for people in desperate need of homes. Included in the first phase are eight business sites that will be for rent to local traders and service providers.
