Housing project goes to tender

The municipality is inviting tenders from organisations to develop land for a 4 500 housing unit project.

Mayor Farai Nyandoro said tender invitations would be flighted in the media as council wanted a transparent and fair tender procedure for the massive investment.

“We adopted a 30 days formal tender procedure open even to international companies. Development of land for the project is expected to commence January next year at the latest. Organisations such as the Commercial Bank of Zimbabwe, Central African Building Society and various cooperatives have expressed interest.”

He said council would provide land for the project and go into private and public joint venture smart partnership with interested parties.

According to the planning proposal, the project provides for the construction of institutions such as The Southern Methodist University, Zimbabwe Open University, Public Service Provincial Training Centre, Marondera Technical College, Zimbabwe Republic Police Training College and several housing cooperatives.

The project is expected to utilise land at Kingsdown, Glen Somers and Lot A of Ruzawi.

Meanwhile, council will start selling low density housing stands at Lower Paradise next week for $13 000 each, with a 30% deposit. The balance would be paid within the next two years. “We hope the terms would suit interested buyers and council would realise the much needed revenue out of the deal,” said the ambitious Nyandoro.
