Berea at a glance
Berea & Hillbrow
We began our enterprise in Hillbrow and have called this our home for many years. For this reason, it made sense to invite you to experience this sanctuary in the suburb we refer to as home.
Situated on part of an old Witwatersrand farm called Doornfontein, Berea was established in 1893 and while it has gone through vast changes over the years, we have focussed our efforts in finding the loveliest inner-city residential apartments that will suit both your pocket and way of life. A small central section within Berea has been focused on in an attempt to improve the suburb at its heart.
This new area is called the CID (City Improvement District) and has been the key focus area of Ithemba Property. For 15 years Ithemba has been working in the area and has focussed his efforts on improving the inner city district so that he could make a difference in the lives of those already part of this project, and ultimately in the lives of those who choose this area as their new home.
Through Ithemba's efforts in restoring a sense of security in this suburb, with crime having plummeted by 80% since 2006.
“The CID is called ‘Legae la rona’, which means ‘Our homeplace’.”
