In August 2010 at a prestigious event held to launch TAU Village

The Village is located at 279 Struben Street in the City Centre, a block away from the taxi rank, and surrounded by different retail stores including the newly constructed Blood mall, newly renovated government departments, and the National Library.  It is also on one of the main transport routes. You can hear the sound of the lions roar, as it is not far from the Zoological gardens.The well articulated brief required a socially inclusive village and an equally creative architect to make it a success. It boasts of 109 units that include a new home for Lerato House for 20 girls-at risk, a home for  eight elderly people, a crèche accommodating 24 children, commercial shops on the ground floor, two units for people with disabilities, and 79 self contained family units.
