THE PROJECT PROVIDES the opportunity for the development of parks and recreation areas, community facilities such as libraries, municipal uses, markets, clinics, a school andcrèches as well as transport transfer areas.

The project aim was to create a formal, enjoyable, sustainable and integrated living environment on the project site, which would include the upgrading of the Itsoseng community - and adding value to the broader area - in a coordinated manner.
