But one their main areas of business is the construction of larger housing developments. Their most notable projects being the successful completion of 1,000 high density housing units in Mutare (Chikanga Township) and around 500 units in Rusape (Vengere Township) for Zimbabwe Building Society.
One of their most recent projects is the construction of medium to high density housing at Brockdale in Bindura for Homelink, leading property developers linked to RBZ.
The Bindura housing development project started in late 2018 and was completed in early-2019 and involved the construction of around 65 housing units. The development created in excess of 300 housing units but was split between different contractors. The housing units were designed by local architect Daniel Mandishona and overseen and managed by Homelink’s in house team. It’s set to reinvigorate the severe housing shortage in Bindura – a home to many workers in the mining and agricultural industries and also to many employees at the local University. (Among Homelink’s other projects is the housing development at Adylin in Marlborough.)
The homes at Brockdale in Bindura are approximately 54 sqm on stands varying in size from 200 to 427 sqm – so there’s plenty of room for expansion in the future. The size of the plots allows for a small private garden and a parking space. The homes currently have an integrated open plan kitchen/lounge/dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom but would be simple to extend. The housing units are in a development located 4.3km from Bindura town along Shamva road, opposite Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University (ZEGU). So far around 100 families are housed in the new suburb. This is an important addition to the growth and development of Bindura town and the national housing supply which is in need of decent, affordable low income options.
Mr Wellington Mutizwa, Acting Managing Director for Homelink, was recently quoted on their website as saying, “We are pleased with the development and can confirm that we have adequately catered for all income brackets, both local and diaspora. We recently also opened up mortgage financing for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Embassies and International Organisations employees. The houses are currently selling and are moving fast because of their affordable nature.”
