SAPPI Mandeni has entered into a joint venture with the eLan Property Group to develop Mandeni’s first gated estate, known as Jackalberry Residential Estate, named after the vast amount of Jackalberry trees in the area.

Mandeni Mayor Siphesihle Zulu attended the Jackalberry Estate ribbon-cutting ceremony last Wednesday to mark the commencement of the building of it.

The event was also attended by Zulu’s dignitaries, local school principals, church heads, businesses, eLan Property Group, Sappi staff members and professional teams.

Zulu said the estate will have a positive impact on Mandeni’s community with regards to potential for job creations, and more.

“The municipality will throw its maximum support into the project until the project obtains its expected objectives.”

Jackalberry Estate is on the North Coast near Tugela Mouth and Zinkwazi beach. It is one of South Africa’s first entry level secure estates, comprising of 385 houses, starting |
at R450 000 up to R1 000 000 for the larger homes facing the golf course and the Tugela River.

The estate will be a first of its kind in the area and will offer value for money. Currently, 90% of the properties for sale are already occupied with tenants telling town buyers to capitalise on the free standing, two and three-bedroom homes, which can be purchased to lived in or as an investment.

The estate will comprise of an already existing 10-hole golf course with 18 tee boxes, a family-friendly events centre, bar, restaurant, gatehouse, 24-hour security and electrified fencing extending around the entire estate. Facilities are for tenant use.
Developers are currently breaking ground as the first 400mms of the surrounding fence line and palisade fencing on the southern side of the estate is being erected.

“We now look forward to the new gatehouse being built in the new year,[to be completed within six months], followed by phase two to six, which is subject to zoning.
“This will comprise of housing, schools, sports arenas, commercial and retail in the area. The purpose of this, among many other reasons, is to create a secure lifestyle for Jackalberry Estate’s residents and increase the value of homes within the estate,” said Andrew Thompson, eLan Property Group Development Director.

The ceremony included a briefing on the Jackalberry Estate phase 1 and progress to date, presented by Thompson.
Sappi KZN general manager Naresh Naidoo said he is excited about the plans for the estate.
