Jewel City, FOX STREET
A dumbfoundingly magnificent new space has been added to the celebrated Maboneng precinct in the Johannesburg CBD.
The major R1.8-billion Jewel City redevelopment is a massive new extension of Maboneng, which adds a completely new dimension to this immensely popular and vibrant area, and expands what is very possibly Johannesburg’s best-located integrated lifestyle space.
The redevelopment has converted Jewel City into the heart of a thriving, modern neighbourhood, and is reviving inner-city living. It connects to the landmark Arts on Main, and extends across six city blocks, which have been closed for decades and previously housed Joburg’s precious metals and diamond trade, towards Divercity’s redeveloped iconic Absa Towers Main.
The mixed-use Jewel City includes 2,700 apartments, which are enjoying exceptionally high levels of take-up, as well as 20,000sqm of commercial space. Its retail space is already fully let, and its offices are increasingly attracting businesses to the area which benefits from immediate access to all the amenities that employees value most.
A mid-city Melrose Arch, Maboneng’s new Jewel City offers families a safe, amenity rich oasis in which to live, play and enjoy with expansive lawns and play areas, schools, medical facilities, offices, retail, recreation and public art – everything and more needed for a quality daily living.
