Lake Success

Neighbourhood Map: 
Lake Success , in Hillbrow, was the first building to be acquired under the Better Buildings Programme.

It had been allowed to deteriorate by its owner, and had been abandoned. The lift motors had been stolen, flat units had been vandalised, and the sewerage system was dysfunctional. The building was extremely overcrowded with up to eight tenants per bachelor flat.
