9 Abland, whose groundbreaking approach to precinct development has helped it to undertake substantial residential projects like the Hazeldean Node, Waterfall Ridge, and Sandton Gate. In Gauteng, sectional title is the most popular ownership structure. Setting itself apart in a competitive market, Craft Homes is one of few developers in the area to offer sectional title developments where each unit, section, or house is detached so that residents benefit from the exclusive use of their gardens. This enables buyers to purchase into one sectional title scheme with the communal benefits of freedom, space, and exclusivity. On the other hand, full title ownership comes with more choice and flexibility. Craft Homes develops its full title properties so that owners can easily adapt their living areas to suit their own needs. The company is committed to enabling buyers to modify and extend their property as they wish to express their individualised visions, style, and creativity. Furthermore, Craft Homes recognises the continued evolution of living spaces to meet the modern needs of consumers.

The Hive is the first of several contemporary high-rise apartment buildings to be built by Craft Homes. They will be located in popular areas across Gauteng, including Sandton, Waterfall, Centurion, Loftus, and Hatfield. Through this, the company intends to deliver a unique solution to those who want to live in prime high-density, high LSM locations throughout the province’s major metros.
