STREET VENDORS A PROBLEM THAT IS A REAL ESTATE OPPORTUNITY

As the economy shrink the Harare CBD is one of the few remaining areas where advantages can combine in order to make an enterprise viable . From the phrase CBD – central business district – one quickly notice centrality which is a concept involved in the attraction of huge human traffic as people from all parts of the capital , the country and the world over can easily access the center. Exposure to huge numbers of people in a short space of time is an advantage of diamond status because it makes any one selling almost anything to earn some sort of an encouraging revenue. Here is how. If one is selling say second hand clothes a small percentage of the human traffic he is exposed to may buy but a small percentage of a huge number is not negligible. If in the CBD a vendor located at a particular spot is exposed to 1 000 people per day and a meagre  5% of these buys then that will mean 50 people buying per day. This will be great daily sales for the vendor! Therefore, this is the reason why confiscation of merchandise by the authorities for selling in undesignated places is a cost vendors consider as worthy and after a blitz they are still encouraged to return to their spots.

A LUCRATIVE REAL ESTATE SOLUTION


Contrary to the clean up blitz approach this is a wake up call to shrewd property investors. Utilizing airspace at Market Square, Copacabana and  4th Street termini in Harare lucrative malls as large as Joina City can be created. They will have space beneath to attract the commuter buses thereby attracting the much needed human traffic but with a shopping mall above for the sole traders where rent is concessionary. The sole traders will be able to pay the rent as they will be making the money because of a combination of CBD advantages in their favour.  There is also a moral imperative for Zimbabwe in this  proposal since the laws that are being used today to unleash the “full wrath of the law” on vendors where crafted in the past by a racial motive that was ignorant of the feature needs for space by the majority as its huge population increase with time.
