Township Conversion


​​This project involves converting an long-since approved industrial township +/- 27ha into a residential township comprising security-controlled access to several higher density erven to be developed as individual sectional-title developments / complexes.

 

The township's concept is centred on the idea of creating a functional urban village where private recreational space and retail opportunities are within walking distance. Situated in close proximity to the Midrand corridor, this development truly lives up to the concept of a live, work and play environment.

 

To make for cost effective development, the township is being phased into several smaller townships, each comprising three (3) or more erven, offering development opportunities, for cluster housing development (simplex and duplex) and three storey walk-up flats)

 

For more information on the development please feel free to contact our office.

Light Industrial / Commercial Township

 

This project encompasses some 43ha of prime land situated within the Samrand area, Midrand. The township features some 24 industrial / commercial zoned properties permitting the development of light and high-technology industries, warehouse and distribution activities and offices.

Parking Relaxation

 

Presently we are assisting several clients within Gauteng to move away from the traditional parking requirments prescribed by the various Town-Plannning Schemes too reduced and uniform (blanket) parking ratios applied to the gross or leasable floor area of a development vs. parking ratios per specific use activity. This minimises parking compliance issues as and when changes take place to the tenant schedule of a developemnt - e.g. shopping centre. Current projects include, Coachman's crossing, Town-Square, Comaro Crossing, the ABSA-BARCLAYS call centre in Silverton, and others.

Lodges, Wedding Venues, Nurseries, Boutique Restuarants, Self-Storage on Farmland / AH Holdings

 

Not all developments on farmland require formal township establishment. Depending on the zoning of the land and local council policies, some developments such as lodges, wedding venues, boutique resturants, self-storage, etc. can be faciliatted via consent-use or rezoning application.

 

One such example, and a current project is that of a boutique nursery and urban farm (cafe and bistro) set within the eastern peri-urban landscape of the City of Tshwane along Lynnwood Rd.
