Leading property developer, WestProp Holdings has commended Government for creating an enabling environment which is conducive for business to thrive.

Speaking during a ground-breaking ceremony for the US$100 million Millennium Park development in the splashy suburbs of Borrowdale in the capital yesterday, WestProp chief executive Mr Ken Sharpe said Harare’s skyline will soon compete with world cities like London, Dubai and Singapore.

“Our developments are a testament to confidence and belief in a better future. I often say I’m not selling houses but rather l am selling Hope. Hope for a brighter Harare and Zimbabwe.

“At WestProp, we believe and see long term, looking not at today or next year, but beyond the next 10, 20 and even 50 years from now,” he said.

He also said their vision of reaching one million bricks by 2050 was well on course.

President Mnangagwa, who was the guest of honour said it was pleasing that private players in the construction industry and housing development sector, such as WestProp Holdings, were taking advantage of the conducive business operating environment.

“Other creative developments under your portfolio such as the concept of penthouses are most welcome and set to bring to our country, the emerging global trend,” he said.

“I urge other entities in the sector to also set targets on the type of investments, with clear timelines for completion, as we move towards achieving the national targets of growing our housing and real estate stock,” he said.

President Mnangagwa said the target set by WestProp Holdings to reach “a billion bricks by 2050” is indeed a huge statement of intent by the company.
