with a social impact
South Africa is in need of a new definition of communities where integration is felt on all terrains: working, living, socialising and re-creation and shopping in an area that is safe, accessible, of mixed usage and allow for the integration of all economic classes and races. Within Philippi, there is a lack of office space for local businesses. Philippi Village is an entrepreneurial development, providing a space where entrepreneurs and businesses can grow; where residents can develop skills and increase their employability.
The development will invigorate the area with work, trade and recreational activities. Entrepreneurs will be encouraged to cluster and collaborate to strengthen their businesses, stimulating local entrepreneurship and creating promising economic futures within Philippi. Businesses located within Philippi encourage job opportunities for residents within the area and negate them travelling long distances in search of work.
