Nyumba mpya kuanzia 30M TZS

Pole, we’d love to speak Swahili at this point: The  latest urban concept in Fumba Town goes as local as  can be to provide equitable housing at unrivalled prices.

CheiChei was launched on the 21st of November at the Mao Zedong in Kikwajuni - Zanzibar. The event was attended by 1000+  guests including our guests of honor , Hon. Mudrick Soraga - Minister of Labour, Economy and Investment, Hon. Riziki Pembe - Minister of & the Director of ZIPA, Mr. Shariff A. Shariff.

Imagine a diversified bazaar downstairs, clean and cozy apartments upstairs, sustainability designed with local timber and stone bricks artistically designed by architect Leander Moons. A school and playground are just around the corner, a nice coffee shop waits you in the evenings. There are large units for families; studios, flats and 'shared living' for singles, modern amenities, and all of that at affordable prices starting at 30 million Tsh (less than $14,000) for a home.

Equitable real estate developments for lower and middle income groups in East Africa are extremely limited. At the same time, the demand for such housing is rapidly growing. In the urban-west area of Zanzibar an estimated 100,000 new homes are urgently needed. CheiChei Living, named after a greeting in swahili, wants to fill this gap by offering sustainable housing for a wider income group. "It is more about a way of life than about apartments", explains Mr. Tobias Dietzold - COO, CPS a project developer for Fumba Town: "Its about safety for your family, comfortable living in an uplifting environment." The project was launched in November int he presence of government representatives and a big elegant crowd - eager to win one of the apartments in a lottery! For interested buyers, a number of new financing options are available. CheiChei living will have 270 units; a first show apartment will open next year for visitors.
