JOHANNESBURG | Maboneng Precinct



The origins

The development of the Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg’s ground-breaking urban mixed-use community, began with Arts on Main – the cultural hub known for its mix of galleries, artist studios, creative venues, offices and retail spaces.

The foundations

Maboneng is the brainchild of Propertuity, founded by Jonathan Liebmann. In 2008, Jonathan purchased the old DF Corlett construction offices and warehouses, and collaborated with architect Enrico Daffonchio of Daffonchio and Associates Architects in converting this industrial space into a cutting-edge city destination.

The vision

During the construction of Arts on Main in 2009, Jonathan began to imagine a much broader vision: the transformation of the entire area around Arts on Main into a fully integrated, mixed-use community and a comprehensive and mixed-income residential offering. Maboneng was born. Named for the Sotho word for ‘place of light’, the precinct represents an enlightened community in Joburg’s eastern CBD.

The present

Main Street Life, 12 Decades Hotel, Revolution House, The Main Change and Fox Street Studios came next – all well-designed and unique mixed-use spaces that encourage entrepreneurship, culture, urbanism, creative expression and design.

Arts on Main is a mixed use artistic hub in Johannesburg’s downtown Maboneng Precinct. The creative centre offers Joburgers a wide range of multidisciplinary events, galleries and shops. Forming a large part of Johannesburg’s urban renewal process, Arts on Main is a blend of creative office, gallery and retail spaces. It brings together some of the best of Johannesburg’s art, artists, eateries, urban office space and high profile events.Artists with studios at Arts on Main include William Kentridge, Mikhael Subotzky and Kim Lieberman. Other gallery and retail spaces include GoetheOnMain, David Krut Publishing, LoveJozi and the ever-popular Market on Main.



Main Street Life: 286 Fox Street has become one of Joburg’s most popular home addresses. A sought-after urban living complex in the Maboneng Precinct and an elite property investment opportunity, Main Street Life is well designed, affordable living at its best. The block offers 194 single, double or penthouse units with unparalleled views of Johannesburg’s city. Rooftop facilities include a boxing gym, restaurant and bar. Features for residents include secure parking, storage units and 24-hour surveillance.Residents share their building with a ground floor exhibition space, restaurants, The Bioscope Independent Cinema and the POPArt Theatre and Performing Arts



12 Decades Hotel offers visitors to Johannesburg boutique hospitality in the heart of Maboneng. Located on the 7th floor of Main Street Life, 12 Decades is a cultural haven for guests to the city of Johannesburg. Each of the hotel rooms has been conceptualised and designed by some of South Africa’s top artists and designers, including Love Jozi, Black Coffee and Dokter + Misses. Chronicling the rich history of Johannesburg, the 12 Decades Hotel offers unique urban accommodation for visitors to Johannesburg.



The Main Change is an office building that houses entrepreneurs and innovators in a collaborative working environment. Office spaces at the Main Change for rental or purchase are between 120m2 and 253m2. Smaller office space on the third floor is also available for start-ups and freelancers. The building features a spa, meditation zone, holistic healing centre, health food café and fashion and furniture stores on the ground floor. This Johannesburg city office space in Maboneng Precinct, helps blend the worlds of work, play and stay – giving occupants the best of all three. The Main Change was the recipient of the 2012 Halala Joburg award in the “Working and Buying” category



Revolution House offers tenants and owners a variety of sizes and layouts of loft apartments, complete with balconies and rooftop gardens. The mixed-use development also houses a full floor of film and sound studios. The ground floor includes The Revolution Barber, New Brow art and fashion store and the Black Box event space.
Completed in March 2012, Revolution House is 90% sold out and has succeeded in growing the residential community of Maboneng even further.



Fox Street Studios is an exclusive development offering only four units. Each unit is an entire floor of the building and has uninterrupted north facing views of Johannesburg, with an planted balconies. The building houses architectural firms and urban planners, including Daffonchio and Associates, Studio X and Urban Works. It is conveniently located next door to Main Street life, and ground floor retail includes restaurants, fashion and design stores as well as the Precinct’s own community centre.



MOAD is an urban museum space designed to showcase Africa’s cutting edge designers and their world-class work.
Located in Commissioner Street in the Maboneng Precinct, MOAD forms an important part of Johannesburg tourism and should be on every local and tourist’s ‘things to do in Johannesburg’ list. Adjacent to this design space is the artisan factory that is both the studio of the Trinity Session as well as a facility for art and artisinal manufacturing. The space will facilitate collaboration between artists and artisans. The space is also an ideal urban events space for large scale events.



Artisan Lofts offers well designed open plan loft living including wrap around city views.
Artisan lofts units will range from 70 SQM – 200 SQM. The ground floor will feature a retail space for artisans looking to have a combined manufacturing/ retail offering.
The development is scheduled to be completed during the course of 2012.

___________

Located across from Arts on Main in Main Street, it will provide over 200 parking bays. The development will also be the home of the Mabo’go transport agency
