The City of Joburg (CoJ) has released information about three inner city properties that are now open for public tender by potential developers, as part of its inner-city rejuvenation project that comprises over 80 buildings and plots for renovation.
- The first building is a 999 m2 block of flats located on the corner of Sophie De Bruyn and Rissik streets and is commonly known as Moth Building.
Moth House – Not sixty yet but close (1960). Rated by the JHF (C).
- The second building is in Marshalltown and is commonly known as Samancor House.
Samancor House – Not sixty either (1962). Also rated by the JHF (C). More than three stands so PHRAG must be notified to check if an HIA is needed.
- The third site is the Salisbury building, located on the corner of Salisbury and Wemmer Jubilee street, just south of the CBD.
25 Salisbury Street – Vacant stand. Over 5000m2. PHRAG must be notified to check if an HIA is needed.
JHF C rating = Good building, part of a significant group and probably contributes to street scene, but possibly only a façade. Don’t touch without consulting the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation. Changes are possible but demolition will be resisted.
