WELCOME

TO REALGROWTH

 

Realgrowth Development is a residential development company with a vision to create homes for people, where they can live and play. Our focus is to develop sustainable, evolving, and desirable places whilst keeping it affordable.

Creating a home is a much more complex task than simply producing reasonably priced and adequately functional units in the hope that they can be sold or leased. It is relatively simple to build a property, but functionality alone does not produce success. A building should also be efficient, appealing, beautiful, meaningful, and equally important, it must contribute to a defined area. Our business is a hugely satisfying process ranging from the acquisition of property to the finished product and the eventual management of the complexes.

DEVELOPING AFFORDABLE HOUSING

is an art that balances Architecture, Urban Design, Engineering, Politics,
Environmental Issues & Economics.

THE PROCESS

HOW DO WE FIND INTERESTING SITES?

Realgrowth pro-actively seeks out sites in areas where the central business districts are situated. However, at times landowners approach us directly or through Property Agents.

HOW DO WE WORK?

The process starts with an assessment of the site. There are many factors to evaluate in the first phase of development, such as geographic aspects, town planning spatial development frameworks, availability of services, geotechnical conditions, market demand, and the environment. We also keep in mind the current needs in the area and how developing there will add value to the existing surroundings.

WHO DEVELOPS THE SITE?

In most cases Realgrowth selects the site and then a dedicated professional team assists with planning, design approvals, and financing. Each project is unique, and therefore tailored to that specific area, the needs of the community, and expectations of the various stakeholders.
