The Johannesburg Housing Company is a social housing company. Launched in 1995, we strive to tackle housing challenges in cities across the country. Through several partnerships with other stakeholders, including the National Department of Human Settlements and the Gauteng Department of Human Settlements, Johannesburg Housing Company has, since inception, taken numerous innovative paths to regenerate Johannesburg’s inner city and deliver affordable housing in Johannesburg.
Over the past three decades, we have developed more than 4,513 rental housing units and set up homes for more than 13,500 people in the middle to low earning segments. These units range from bachelor apartments to single room and double-room flats, as well as communal facilities. We have pioneered a sustainable model of developing social housing in the inner city and surrounding areas, and we achieved this by building neighbourhoods with qualified building management who put tenants first at all times.
We have set up homes for more than 13,500 people from the middle to low earning segments. Today, our units have become a home to many families, single parents, young working couples, professionals, blue-collar workers, students and the elderly.
As part of diversifying its portfolio, since November 2020, JHC has also taken on the management of non-owned buildings for the first time, providing property management services to the landlord.
Everyone with accommodation needs is welcome at Johannesburg Housing Company, as we strive to provide accessible and affordable homes to all South Africans.
