About us


Founded in the late 1920s as a small building company, ALW Properties has grown into a dynamic property development and management firm. Today, our team remains passionately dedicated to the built environment's responsible development and service.

Currently in it’s third generation of leadership, ALW Properties continues to innovate. We are a proud member of the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA), emphasising our commitment to environmentally sustainable practices and new building and operational technology that adds value to our property ecosystem and community.

Mobilised by a ‘tenant-first’ approach, our success is driven by skillful property development minds and hands-on, caring management. As the industry shifts, we stay ahead, adapting and thriving. We’ve been doing this for a century.
