The designated developers of the lifestyle Warren Hills Golf Estate are now moving to accommodate all stakeholders in order to ensure the successful implementation of the project, which has been delayed for more than 14 years, following the recent court victory in which Sunshine Developments managed to obtain an eviction order against the current tenants of Warren Hills Golf Club.
In his ruling, Commercial Court Justice Bongani Ndhlovu directed that the Warren Hills Golf Club be ejected, that the club pay holding over damages, and that the club pay the litigation’s expenses.
West Prop CEO Ken Sharpe said “we are very satisfied that the rule of law in Zimbabwe can be relied upon and grateful that our legal team as well as the court w and that the club should payere able to cut through the many attempted delays to face justice by the other side.
“We are now confident going forward that our investors will see this as a positive development making the eviction of the current tenants to pave way for the massive US$280 million project a reality.
West Property, the developers of the upcoming Warren Hills Golf Estate will soon engage stakeholders including current members at the Golf Club with a view of accommodating them as the company implements its program to revamp the 18-hole golf club into a US Championship standard course as well as develop the lifestyle community to include existing and new elements of a tennis and swimming academy as well as the residential units and luxury hotel around the course.
However West Property is still waiting for city council to approve the change of use and as such expressed the desire to be accommodative to all stakeholders and to work with progressive forces that will help realise the massive project with potential to be used to brand Harare and Zimbabwe on an international arena.
The company has a clear vision that dovetails into the city vision of a world class city by 2025. West Property is well aware that the said vision can only be achieved with the participation of the private sector of which West Property is part of.
The Warren Hills development is coming with a top notch redesigned, picturesque golf course with a driving range overlooking a water body, prestigious apartments and free standing houses and a retirement village. The branded residential estate around the course will be serviced by a five star hotel making it the first in Africa outside Morocco and Egypt.
The business emphasizes that, along with other athletic amenities that serve the community, members, and locals, the golf course will continue to be the primary draw at Warren Hills Golf Estate. At a level never previously seen in the nation, the general people will have access to swimming pools, tennis courts, jogging tracks, food and beverage establishments, dining establishments, entertainment venues, and commercial offers.
Increased income and a positive improvement in the area’s atmosphere would be extremely beneficial financially for Harare City Council, who are 30% shareholders in the project.
Properties around the development will increase in value as well, hopefully kicking off the urbanization of the nearby suburbs.
