Location description from owner

The Gauteng region

Johannesburg was named Rough Guides Top City Destination for 2015. The Rough Guides website states: 'Joburg has a reputation problem. But South Africa's biggest city is finally beginning to break free from the chains of its troubled past, and parts – like the arty Maboneng quarter – have rooted themselves as exciting cultural hubs. New clusters of forward-thinking museums, galleries and shops are set to emerge in 2015, though better-known attractions like Constitution Hill and the poignant Apartheid Museum should still be on the to-do list of any first-time visitor.'

Johannesburg has vastly upgraded its transport systems in recent years, with innovations such as the Gautrain making travel faster, simpler and safer. The introduction of the CitySightseeing bus tour has also provided a cost-effective way of visiting top inner-city attractions.

Johannesburg

Regeneration in Johannesburg has seen the transformation of areas that, for years, were declared no-go zones as a result of urban decay and crime. The Maboneng precinct east of the city is one of them.

Maboneng, a Sotho word meaning “place of light”, is a fitting name for a district that has fast become a centre of creative energy for Johannesburg's urban artists. With a mix of art galleries, and retail and studio space on offer, the precinct draws the inner-city public, as well as the chic, art-going crowd of the city's northern suburbs, bringing life back into downtown Johannesburg.

In 2008, developer Jonathan Liebmann bought old construction offices and warehouses dating from the 1900s. He collaborated with acclaimed sustainable architect Enrico Daffonchio in transforming the industrial space into a cultural oasis that is now Arts on Main, one of Maboneng's two main building complexes.

Arts on Main has a historic look and feel; it has retained its industrial aspect, with concrete-coloured walls and a metal fire escape that rises up to the second level of the building. Visitors can take in the view of the urban landscape from the second-level metal balcony, while listening to the industrial noise generated by the factories that still operate in the area.

The complex includes a combination of advertising agencies, retail space, art galleries and private studios. World-renowned South African artist William Kentridge was one of the first tenants to buy a space in the building. Other organisations in the building include the Goodman Gallery and Goethe Institute, as well as local design brand Love Jozi.

Main Street Life, the younger of Maboneng's two developments, is a transformed 1970s industrial building that houses a variety of establishments. It opened its doors to the public in 2010.

The top floor of Main Street Life is taken up by the 12 Decades Johannesburg Art Hotel, where each individually designed room represents one of the past 12 decades of Johannesburg's history.

Besides the hotel, Main Street Life also includes apartments, a rooftop events venue and retail stores. On the ground floor, Johannesburg's independent cinema, the Bioscope, screens local, international and classic films that don't usually make it to the mainstream cinema circuit.
