The future
Nearly 10 years down the line and Land Equity is already scaling the pinnacle of South Africa’s property development industry.
But rather than resting on its laurels,
the company is pushing forward with an ambitious  ve-year growth plan.
“We want to diversify and grow our business across the continent and into a number of sub-Saharan African countries. In the next  ve years, we want to be in another seven countries and in the next 10 years, we want to have a presence in a further 23 cities in Africa,” reveals Chait.
Land Equity has identi ed several emerging sub-Saharan markets across the continent, which are among the fastest growing economies in the world, and ripe for property development with a particular focus on the retail sector.
These countries targeted for retail property development by Land Equity are Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique, with a blueprint already in place to develop convenience strip malls, followed by industrial distribution centres, before  nally evolving towards a focus on mixed-use developments.
With the Zero-2-One Tower development in Cape Town acting as the benchmark of the company’s aptitude in the African property sector, the future is bright for Chait and co at Land Equity Group.
