The Clayville Mega Housing Project is a Catalytic Project within the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality (EMM). It is situated on the boundary between Midrand, Ivory Park, Tembisa, Winnie Mandela Informal Settlement, Olifantsfontein, Clayville and Tswelapele. The Clayville Mega Housing Development is within proximity to the N1 and R21 Freeways, and abutting the larger Kaalfontein – Ivory Park, the development represents infill development towards the N1 Development Corridor and the Midrand CBD.
The Clayville Mega Housing Project is currently under construction with 822 FLISP units, 200 single residential BNG/RDP units and 237 multi-storey BNG/RDP units that have already been completed and occupied. Currently there are 484 multi-storey BNG/RDP units under construction with a further 500 multi-storey BNG/RDP units that will commence once the subsidy contract has been approved.
Once completed, the development aims to offer 14 332 residential units, consisting of multi-storey RDP (6 066) units, single residential FLISP units (5 663) and multi-storey rental units (2 603). The estimated cost of the Project is approximately R4.7 billion which will be spent over a 5 to 8-year period. The Clayville Mega Housing Project will provide social amenities such as primary and secondary schools, a library, parks, community centre, shopping centre, business stands and places of worship. The development will benefit the area by undertaking urban renewal, creating employment opportunities (1300 employment opportunities to date) and the upgrading of infrastructure.
