Maboneng Precinct – Description from Afrisam.
The Maboneng Precinct (meaning “place of light” in Sotho) is an open, mixed–use neighbourhood, a unique case of vast urban regeneration produced by 1 Developer and 1 Architect. This historic district in Johannesburg is a unique complex of developments that collectively underpin the city centre’s exciting regeneration resulting from both global inspiration and local innovation. These include studios, art galleries and a range of shops, restaurants and coffee bars that are fueling an inner-city lifestyle, with entrepreneurship and creativity at its core. The broad spectrum of different sized spaces attempts to create a precinct that is inclusionary whilst maximising the financial viability of the development as a whole.
