First Metro Housing Company was the first social housing institution in Durban. It is a non profit company founded in 1998. We now have 1218 units in the Ethekweni municipality.
These include a large number of units in renovated blocks in the centre of the city as well as some greenfield developments in suburban areas. We presently have plans to develop a number of new projects that will provide at least an additional 700 units. We have a mix of self contained flats from bachelor to 3 bedrooms.
