Cape Town - The largest integrated housing development scheme ever in the Western Cape will be officially unveiled next month, a construction company said on Monday.

"A show village is already under construction. The public will be invited to a launch scheduled for Saturday, October 13 when they’ll be able to inspect show houses," Power Construction spokesperson Dennis Cruywagen said.

A total of 3 200 housing units would be built in the Zeekoeivlei, Grassy Park, and Strandfontein area in Cape Town over the next five years.

The new development would be split into three units, On The Vlei, New Horizons, and Pelican Park, and would be spread over 80 hectares.

Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg, mayoral committee member for human settlements, said: "We’re proud to launch this project as one of the City of Cape Town's first integrated developments that crosses different ranges of affordability. We’re glad to be part of this historic project."

Chairperson and founder of the Power Group, Graham Power, said getting involved in the project was a chance to give something back to Capetonians.

"Building affordable housing is not very profitable, but this is not about money. This is about giving back.

"Nothing beats seeing the excitement on the face of someone who has never owned a house when they receive a key which says you now have your own roof over your head."
