City of Joburg secures R2 billion for redevelopment
The City of Joburg has secured a R2 billion investment from the Diversity Urban Property Fund to renovate Johannesburg inner city and make "Joburg great again".
Chairman and founder of Diversity Urban Property Fund, Tebogo Mogashoa says the fund is aimed at developing functional neighbourhoods and mixed-use developments that will attract people looking for affordable housing close to their place of work.
This is a fund that is intended to rejuvenate the city by bringing people to reside, work and play in the CBD as it was intended to be when the city was founded.Tebogo Mogashoa, Chairman And Founder of Diversity Urban Property Fund
