“This project we are undertaking today is a legacy project. It brings many firsts for Sub-Saharan Africa and Zimbabwe. I believe this project will change the perception of Harare and Zimbabwe forever,” Sharpe added.

“We are on a mission to ensure one billion bricks are put in the ground by 2050 across all our projects, including Pokugara Residential Estate, Millennium Heights, Pomona City and Hills Golf Estate.

WestProp engaged renowned golf course designer Peter Matkovich and top architect Joan Balagué Capdet for the project.

“It is with great privilege that I welcome Joan Balagué Capdet. He flew all the way from Barcelona, ​​Spain yesterday. He is the man who designed this beautiful estate that we are unveiling today. He came up with a concept plan. The first time he walked on this land was about two years ago,” Sharpe noted.

“He was involved and instrumental in creating the city plan to integrate this mixed-use development into a smart city, where we have beautiful photographs of what is being designed on the walls around you. He designed the houses.”

Sharpe said Matkovich will create an 18-hole world championship golf course.

“Peter came to see me a few years ago, he said to me: not only have I designed the best golf courses in Africa and won the most awards for the best golf courses, but I am also a man from the soil of Zimbabwe. Sharpe said.

“He was born in Zimbabwe and he wanted to come back to Zimbabwe and leave his legacy, leave his mark in his later years on the best course he designed.”
