PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday challenged property developers in Zimbabwe to take a leaf from WestProp Holdings by embarking on more densified housing construction projects countrywide.

Mnangagwa said this while he was officiating at trendsetting Victoria Falls listed Property Company WestProp Holdings ground-breaking ceremony for the US$100 million Millennium Park development in Borrowdale West suburb in Harare.

The massive lifestyle development project is in line with the company’s vision of laying one billion bricks by 2050.

Mnangagwa also urged local authorities to complement such developments by appropriately planning for the growth in population density due to developments of this nature

“As we build the Zimbabwe we want, let us be cognisant that our land is finite and we must use it prudently conscious that our population will expand while our land area is constant.”

He added that it was also commendable that the construction of 1 000 apartments at Millennium Park by WestProp was in line with the Zimbabwe National Housing Settlements Policy on densification along with the requisite social amenities.

“The fit for purpose development is further characterised by the live, work, shop and play concept, which dovetails with international best practices and trends.

Mnangagwa applauded WestProp Holding’ adherence to green building practices which include serving of resources energy, water and reducing pollution, to ensure that people live in harmony with nature.

WestProp chief executive, Ken Sharpe said that in line with the company’s billion brick vision by 2050, the ground breaking ceremony marked the beginning of the construction of Millennium Heights Block 4 luxury apartments.

West Prop Holdings has so far laid 5 199 711 bricks at its developments in Pomona City, Millennium Heights and Pokugara.

The award-winning innovative ideas include smart city eco-friendly communities that are designed to appeal to modern homeowners who seek a balance between live work, shop and play.
