Maboneng has a humble beginning at Fox Street’s Arts on Main. A core focus on the arts evolved into expanding boundaries, and incorporating new developments like the Work & Art Building and Maboneng’s flagship accommodation and hotel development, Hallmark House. From fine restaurants and entertainment venues, retail stores and art galleries, to The Bioscope, South Africa’s only independent cinema, Maboneng is a neighbourhood celebrated through art, with its finger firmly on the pulse of big business. Office and light industrial space is being utilised by companies looking to expand their footprint in the city and surrounds.
The vision for Maboneng is to evolve the precinct, revolutionising a significant portion of Joburg’s inner city and incorporating business, housing and creative spaces to be used by people from all walks of life. Community projects like Trim Park—a community physical training facility, and Common Ground—Maboneng’s public park has resulted in an organic development of a tightly knit community—simply by residents, visitors and businesses interacting and engaging with the available public space and each other.
Maboneng’s continued success has resulted in its being echoed in other regions in the country. Rivertown, Maboneng’s partner precinct in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, is continuing the community and business development aspects for which it is globally known; and is proof there is a thirst for integrated inner-city community living in other South African urban areas.
