National Housing Erects 5000 new residential properties under Samia Scheme

More than 5000 residential housing properties are being constructed in Dar-es-salaam and Dodoma Cities under the Samia Housing Scheme.

The Project being executed under the National Housing Corporation to the tune of 466 billion/- will also establish more units in other regions.

So far over 560 houses are already taking shape in the Kawe Ward of Dar-es-salaam with more than 320 units already paid for in upfront settlements by eager residents who are keen to own private homes.

In other words, the ambitious housing project is already realizing profits even before completion.

NHC, which is the State-owned Real Estate Developer, is currently erecting a considerable number of affordable housing units at the Tanganyika Packers grounds in the Kawe section of Dar-es-salaam City.

By the second week of January 2023 a total of 321 new houses being built in Dar-es-salaam were already taken on upfront payments.

“The number accounts for 57 percent of the houses under construction. There are nearly 240 other units still on offer,” the Public Affairs and Information Manager for National Housing Corporation, Muungano Saguya reveals.

According to NHC the new houses are being snatched off at the rate of 37 units per week, a trend which started way back in November 2022 all through to January 2023 and counting.

“When the project started, the target was to build 400 houses under various categorical sizes but as demands escalated the number was increased to 560 units in order to satisfy all people craving to own homes,” Saguya explains.

The NHC Information Manager adds that the affordable studio-sized units have all been sold out at the moment. The remaining properties are the two and three bedroomed houses available at discounted offers for early birds.

There is also no need to worry, because the offer remains valid for seven more years until 2030.

The Samia Housing Project entails the construction of 5000 units, with 50 percent of the properties being built in Dar-es-salaam at the moment.

The other 30 percent of the houses will be constructed in Dodoma and the remaining 20 percent to be erected in other mainland regions of Tanzania.
