Jesuit Province of Zimbabwe has set aside US $96 million for one of the largest housing project in the country. The planned is a mixed residential project that will span over 5,670 hectares, 25 kilometers northeast of Harare.
According to the director JPZ development Nigel Johnson, the new housing project will be called Chishawasha Valley and is expected to kick off and the second quarter of this year.
“We have put all the needed measures in place since currently we are waiting for an approval from both the physical planning and a clearance from the Environmental Management Agency and once that is with us he project will be set to kick off” said Nigel
They are planning to start the project from the Mabvuku-end with the 300 square metre stands which have a ready market. He also added the project would be done in phases once approval was granted, for financial reasons and since it was huge. The project will be located in an area which previously fell under Goromonzi Rural District Council.
City council of Harare has acquired 12 farms on the outskirts of the city in 2012, which saw its area increased by up to two thirds. Jesuits are a religious order within the Catholic Church.
