Much needed student accommodation was unveiled at a recent opening of the Winchester Heights project.

Positioned in Winchester Hills, south of Joburg, it serves students attending the University of Johannesburg, Soweto.

There are fifty-six units which can accommodate 224 students i.e., four students per unit. The units are far from being cramped and are spacious and fully furnished which makes an enormous difference for the students who must arrive with only their personal goods and themselves.

The project was funded by the Gauteng Partnership Fund (GPF), which is an entity of the Gauteng Province Dept of Human Settlements.

The developers are two young people who, despite the many pitfalls government puts in the way of developers, completed the project before time. Covid did not help but showing their resilience they continued. A lesson for all who want to enter the field of property development.

Tshepo Letgau and Elaine Phasa of Tshellaine Holdings Construction where highly commended for their efforts in completing the project.

The MEC for Human Settlements, Urban Planning &CoGTA, Lebogang Maile officially opened the project. In attendance were the Chairperson of the GPF, CEO of the GPF, board members and executive members.
