Sohco’s complexes offers a range of unit types and sizes. The units are generally in 2, 3 or 4 storey walk up buildings configured to allow the best use of the natural topography.
In each of the cities there are the following units:
- Bachelor units (Accommodates maximum 2 persons)
- 1 Bedroom units (Accommodates maximum 3 persons)
- 2 Bedroom units (Accommodates maximum 5 persons)
- 3 Bedroom units (Accommodates a maximum of 7 persons – only available at Amalinda, East London)
The maximum number of occupants in each unit type cannot be exceeded as this complies with health regulations to avoid overcrowding. Matching unit types with the number of people occupying the units is an important part of the application process. Other considerations are unit positions (which floor) particularly for the elderly and for parents with small children.
