One of the key pillars and aspirations of the City of Johannesburg is to provide sustainable and resource efficient human settlements. In line with this objective, the Botlhabela development in the Alexandra Township is a JOSHCO project that is equipped with eco-friendly infrastructure. This 520 communal rental room strong development is fitted with solar geysers, providing a reliable and consistent source of hot water for the communal bathrooms. Jojo tanks have been installed alongside each of the buildings to collect rainwater; this water is used to irrigate the communal gardens. There is also a crèche on the premises. This development is a shinning example of a resource efficient and integrated human settlement boasting safe and well-maintained recreational spaces and facilities providing a nurturing family environment.
