The HDA builds a multi-purpose community centre at Soweto-on-Sea
The HDA’s multi-purpose community centre at Soweto-on-Sea is complete. It is a pilot programme of the Eastern Cape Province and Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality and is being implemented by the HDA. The centre is world class in appearance and design, as well as extremely functional. An innovative approach is the introduction of a wind turbine that has been installed to generate power to operate the building and well as holding tanks for water. Construction on the community centre commenced on 22 June 2010 and was completed ahead of schedule on 10 July 2011. The centre will provide a wide range of spaces for a variety of activities, including a hall, sewing room, gymnasium and boxing ring, basketball facility, and much more.
