The City of Windhoek has entered into a public-private-partnership with Champac, who successfully bid for the project.
The partnership is expected to deliver 88 fully serviced plots in the second quarter of 2020. The second phase of this project will add 12 erven, bringing the total number of new plots in Kleine Kuppe to 100.
The City plans to advertise the plots in local newspapers early next year to give prospective buyers an idea of what they would need to qualify.
Plot sizes will range between 480 and 1 000 square metres.
“We are calling upon developers and financiers to go to the masses in Katutura to service land. If you are on the other side of Katutura you see more than 20 houses being built all the time,” Immanuel said.
“If we fail to provide land, people will start taking land within the city boundaries.”
Making reference to the housing backlog, Immanuel said he found it difficult when he became a councillor in 2015.
“It was very tough when I entered the municipality. We are starting to bear fruit from PPPs. There is something happening on the ground.”
He encouraged the financier, Ariya Bridge Capital, to make timely payments to the contractors to ensure the project is delivered on time and on budget.
“Colleagues with money, make timely payments to the contractor. Give the money to the contractor, let them do the job. Most projects in Windhoek are delayed because of this. I do not want to hear a story of I was not paid,” said Immanuel.
Champac director Ritha Khiba said it was a great opportunity for her company to service land in Kleine Kuppe.
Ariya Bridge Capital managing director Ben Biwa urged institutional investors like the Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) to support more projects like these.
