Pickwick transitional housing
The City of Cape Town with its partners is steering a precinct-based approach to the delivery of affordable rental in the Woodstock and Salt River area close to the CBD. This involves multifaceted rental housing projects aimed at improving the lives of Cape Town’s disenfranchised residents.
Apart from the social housing endeavour the first programme implemented is that of ‘transitional housing’, intended to provide alternative accommodation for residents informally occupying pockets of land earmarked for social housing in the area. Such accommodation is not of permanence hence ‘transitional’ but enables the relocated 18 households to transition to a place of permanence enabling the City of Cape Town to unlock 240 social housing opportunities.

The site which houses the transitional accommodation facility is located in Pickwick Road, Salt River.
