All Africa Games Village
Client: Department of Sport, Arts & Culture

Johannesburg — The plans for athletes' accommodation at the All Africa Games (AAG) were revealed at a press conference which was held in Johannesburg. The village was built between Alexandra and the N3 highway, and has left behind excellent infrastructure for the development of the township

The village itself housed 6 000 athletes in 1 800 houses, ranging from single bedroomed (two athlete) places to three bedroomed (six athlete) houses
A brief history of Alexandra Township

Bommastandi of Alexandra Township

In 1912 the following billboard written in Sotho, Zulu and English appeared in Alexandra Township advertising freehold properties. Africans were already engaging in private property at the turn of the 20th century.  This township was subdivided into 2,500 stands which were sold to individuals

Title deeds were given to the individuals once payment was concluded. Second, it indicates that Africans were acquiring private property away from a „traditional village‟ where access to property is said to be communal. A closer look at the acquisition processes of such properties unsettles the notion of private property as individual. It becomes increasingly clear in the study that in spite of the naming of an individual in the titled deed it was not uncommon for family resources to be pooled during acquisition of the said property and hence a shared ownership among members of extended families would be understood
