Through building an eco-system where tenants thrive as a community, Victoria Yards presents a uniquely integrated urban complex that is as much about social development as it is business.
An expansive urban farm lines its pathways. The pathways are filled with pop-up stalls that offer everything from jewellery design and furniture making to fashion, craft beer and baking. You can also look forward to a farmer’s market filled with organic produce from Victoria Yards' lush gardens.
Maboneng & Marshalltown
David Beckham was seen here and Forbes magazine rated it as one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world. There's a reason for Maboneng's world recognition.
Learn about the epic street art initiative and visit its cultural attractions like the Museum of African Design and Arts on Main—a complex that was previously a series of dilapidated buildings and now has many cool galleries, restaurants and boutiques.
Up next is a walking tour of Marshalltown. We take a break at a downtown lunch spot.
Hallmark House - Deuce Bar
Cheers to Joburg in Your Pocket for this unique perspective. Sip on a cocktail or drink and take in these spectacular views.
Known for its Sunday Sessions and live DJs, Hallmark House has recently been refurbished. The building houses residential apartments and the Hallmark Hotel which has new owners. Come check it out! And if you're into fine dining, they have a new landmark venue in their basement called The Marabi Club where Chef Katlego is dishing up.
Newtown, located near the Johannesburg city centre, originally started out as a racially mixed working class district where bricks were manufactured. In the late 1890s, the brickworks was removed to make way for the Kazerne Marshalling Yard, the first railway marshalling yard of its kind in Johannesburg.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, the Newtown Precinct was named "the Brickfields". By 1896, approximately 7,000 people lived in the town.Brickfields' from Ed Charlton's opinion attracted a number of industries, such as trade firms, banks, brick factories, a brewery, and fisheries, as well as immigrants from other nations.
In April 1904, Mahatma Gandhi declared an outbreak of the bubonic plague in Brickfield. The plague caused 82 fatalities and 112 people were reportedly diagnosed with it.The local government initiated the fire brigade to start fires within the town aiming to cease the plague
Cleanse your body with a deliciously fresh juice from an urban farm located in Maker's Valley. Meet the lady behind this urban farm initiative putting food on the table for many locals.
The people who live and work in Makers Valley are diverse in many ways including socio-economic status, ethnicity, and religion. Most residents are economically challenged, and many without employment. However, visible urban decay and associated social ills are balanced by pockets of vibrant business development, in both the formal and informal sectors.
Changemaking is a core principle that governs the many activities. The vision is that the entrepreneurial activities of the growing numbers of ‘Makers’ in the Valley will generate a localised and sustainable economy, ultimately improving the livelihoods of many.
Constitutional Hill & Braamfontein
There is perhaps no other site of incarceration in South Africa that imprisoned the sheer number of world-renowned men and women as those held within the walls of Constitution Hill’s prison cells. The site is a former prison and military fort that bears testament to South Africa’s turbulent past and, today, is home to the country’s Constitutional court which endorses the rights of all citizens.
