From Creamer Media in Johannesburg, this is the Real Economy Report.
A City of Johannesburg initiative is redeveloping abandoned or derelict buildings in the city centre into low-cost accommodation units for the working poor. Natalie Greve visited a number of these developments to find out more.

Natalie Greve:
The Johannesburg Social housing Company, or JOSHCO, currently manages around 7 500 units which are spread across several projects in the inner city and which provide housing for around 25 000 tenants. The company aims to further densify in core locations where infrastructure and public transport networks will be less costly to maintain. JOSHCO CEO Rory Gallocher explains the objective of this development.

Natalie Greve:
Gallocher believes that to assist those living and working in the inner city, the space must be controlled and managed.

Natalie Greve:
Gallocher adds that operating within the inner city presents a unique set of challenges.
