LAND AND PROPERTY

The character and culture of any town is reflected in the way in which physical structures in the area and land are developed. Well-developed areas owned by local residents contribute to the building of wealth. To this end, Ranyaka works with local investors to develop and repurpose buildings and land to the benefit of the local community.

This is a relatively new service line in the Ranyaka portfolio. We would like to increasingly partner with communities and investors to:

  • Identify residential and commercial development opportunities

  • Identify residential and commercial development opportunities

  • Develop under-utilised open land

  • Investigate micro-solutions for informal settlement areas

  • Support and promote land development for small-scale farming / agripreneurship purposes

  • Address food security through urban farming initiatives; and

  • Repurpose old or vacant buildings for e.g. commercial activities or community hubs
