Gauteng Business 2017/18 is the ninth edition of this highly successful annual journal, that has established itself as the premier business and investment guide for the Gauteng province. Special features for 2017/18 include a focus on major new developments in the region’s metros, complemented by detailed overviews of the main economic sectors in South Africa’s most important provincial economy.

SPECIAL FEATURE Various

SPECIAL FEATURE Various “improvement districts” have also contributed, for example the RID (Retail Improvement District) where businesses in a designated area pay levies to secure improved cleaning and security services. The Johannesburg City Improvement District Forum shares information among the CIDs. Expenditure by CIDs collectively on supplementary public space safety, cleaning and maintenance is estimated to be about R 61-million annually. Investment in public space infrastructure from CIDs was more than R50-million over the last five years. The Gauteng Partnership Fund (GPF) has attracted about R3.5-billion in private-sector funding for affordable housing in the province since 2012. The Brickfields housing and rental development in Newtown was funded by the GPF and implemented by the Johannesburg Housing Company (JHC) as one of the first inner-city rejuvenation projects. JHC is a leader in converting bad buildings to useable rental space. The Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA) projects range from the upgrading of Constitution Hill, the Faraday Station precinct, work on the Fashion District and pavements of the inner city, renovation of the Drill Hall and the big Newtown make-over. Mayor Mashaba intends fast-tracking the delivery of title deeds to the beneficiaries of the city’s housing projects. Public spaces need to be included in urban regeneration planning, as do buildings for social purposes. When the Outreach Foundation Community Centre was built in Hillbrow in 2015, it was the first piece of social infrastructure to go up in the suburb since the 1970s. The design, a glass box in a light steel frame which seems to hover over the site, won architects Local Studio the Saint Goban architectural award and provides space for dance and computer classes and offices. The same architects also developed a public service centre on top of a renovated building for Urban Task Force, a private property development company. The building in Hillbrow, Mimosa Square, was a famous art deco building that had been hijacked by criminals. Private developer Indluplace Properties bought nine large apartment blocks in 2015, taking its total buildings in the central Johannesburg CBD, Berea and Hillbrow to 23: 33% of the units are bachelor pads, 22% are two-bedroomed flats. The listed company (its major shareholder is Arrowhead) intends to “aggressively grow its portfolio” of high-yielding properties as it believes the rental market has huge potential. The developers of the Maboneng Precinct are also very upbeat. The Propertuity website states, “With Arts on Main as the catalyst, Maboneng has expanded east along Fox Street, and beyond Albertina Sisulu Road. Community projects like Trim Park and Common Ground offer spaces for the public to use GAUTENG BUSINESS 2017/18 18
