It is early on Friday morning and a queue of people, carrying white envelopes containing lease contracts, is forming outside the new Brickfields housing development in Newtown.
They are here to get the keys to their new homes, the first group of 300 tenants moving into the innovative, 600-unit block, on Friday, 1 July.
Brickfields, an initiative overseen by the Johannesburg Housing Company, offers one- to three-bedroomed flats catering for a range of people across income groups.
