Gaelic Mansions

Neighbourhood Map: 
Bonvista and Gaelic Mansions are neighbouring buildings and share the same entrance on Van der Merwe Street in Hillbrow.

Both these buildings have been freshly refurbished by JHC. They provided safe, decent housing at affordable rent rates in this popular part of the city. Most of these units are single rooms which are grouped three or four together with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. Gaelic Mansions was upgraded and reopened in 2007 and Bonvista in 2008.
