The municipality has identified a total of 10 sites for a mixed bag of affordable housing options.
Due to the legacy of apartheid spatial planning, many black and coloured people still live on the outskirts of the city.
A prospectus for the development of the five sites will be issued within two months.
Not a single state-subsidised rental unit has been built in the inner city since 1994.
But Councillor Brett Herron says this is going to change.
“So I think this is a demonstration of how we can change the inner city and make it accessible and affordable to everyone.”
About 240 social housing units are expected to be built on two sites in Woodstock, while at least 476 affordable housing options form part of the Salt River Market development in Albert Road.
