Neighborhood on Spotlight - Arlington Estate

Admin June 02, 2022

Arlington Estate is an upmarket and exclusive residential estate in the southern parts of Harare, which ranks among the affluent and prestigious residential areas in the city. Arlington Estate is a mixed use development comprising low density, cluster and commercial properties. It lies between Airport Road and Seke Road. It is bordered by Hatfield, Logan Park and Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport. 

Arlington Estate planning and development was started around 2004, spearheaded by Cardinal Corporation. The Estate comprises 322 hectares of tranquil landscape. There are a variety of housing designs on The Estate with basic building guidelines in place to ensure an overall standard of aesthetics, and safety standards of the City of Harare are adhered to. 

The project received Subdivision approval in 2004 and has over the course of the last decade begun preparing Roads, Water and Drainage in terms of such approval. Nearly all works have been completed on residential, commercial and industrial phases. There are 7 residential phases that encompass 661 low density stands and 522 cluster units. 

The original subdivision permit only allowed for low density stands but an alteration was made in 2015 due to market demand for smaller units. The low density stands have model plans and architectural guidelines, whilst the cluster units have pre-approved plans.

The development includes the provision of both commercial and suburban shopping centre. Additionally, there is provision for a crèche, a Secondary School, a Church and Light Industrial developments.
