WINDHOEK – Earthworks have started on the Hilltop Estate development in Kleine Kuppe, where Demushuwa Property Developers are developing a shopping mall, private hospital, medical suites, and luxury apartments.
The principal agent, Howard & Chamberlain Architects, have handed the site to contractors at the Lady Pohamba Private Hospital and the newly planned Pupkewitz MegaCentre.
“We are pleased to announce that the earthworks will start at the Pupkewitz MegaCentre site and the construction will now commence at the Lady Pohamba Private Hospital site,” said Desmond Howard, director at Demushuwa Property Developers. The final completion and opening at both sites are scheduled for early 2015.
Apart from the individual construction projects at the Hilltop Estate development, Kleine Kuppe will receive new and upgraded roads, as well as parks and gardens. Frankie Fredericks Drive and Chasie Street will be converted into double lanes, which will carry an expected increase in traffic. A new road will be constructed at the intersection of Frankie Fredericks Drive and Ombika Street leading to Lady Pohamba Private Hospital and the Grove Mall of Namibia.
“Demushuwa and the Department of Parks and Gardens at the City of Windhoek have a partnership agreement in place. We are donating trees and plants worth N$2 million, while the municipality takes responsibility for the landscaping and future maintenance,” explained Howard.
According to Demushuwa Property Developers the Hilltop Estate development will have a tremendously positive impact on the Kleine Kuppe area. The developers expect the entire development will result in approximately 3 000 direct jobs. In addition, the development will bring many socio-economic benefits to the community.
“With any construction comes inevitable inconvenience. We apologise, but trust that the residents in Kleine Kuppe are as excited about the development as we are,” stressed Howard.
