Chinese Firm Helps Rwanda Build Vision City to Tackle Housing Challenges

Located on one of the hills at "The Land of a Thousand hills," the Vision City project is part of the Rwandan government’s efforts to solve housing challenges in the capital city Kigali.

The first phase of the project, the biggest housing project in Rwanda, is consisted of 504 units of villas and apartments. According to the plan, after all the four phases are completed, the project will have the capacity to accommodate over 22,000 people.

Kigali could have a housing deficit of up to 350,000 residential units in 10 years, if nothing is done to address the current shortage, a study conducted by the Rwandan government and European Union in 2012 showed.

At least 43,436 social houses and 186,163 affordable houses are required annually by 2022, reflecting 54 percent housing demand, according to the city master plan of Kigali.
