Directions to Arts on Main
The development of the Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg's ground-breaking urban mixed-use community, began with Arts on Main - the cultural hub known for its mix of galleries, artist studios, creative venues, offices and retail spaces.
Maboneng is the brainchild of Propertuity, founded by Jonathan Liebmann. In 2008, Jonathan purchased the old DF Corlett construction offices and warehouses, and collaborated with architect Enrico Daffonchio of Daffonchio and Associates Architects in converting this industrial space into a cutting-edge city destination.
During the construction of Arts on Main in 2009, Jonathan began to imagine a much broader vision: the transformation of the entire area around Arts on Main into a fully integrated, mixed-use community and a comprehensive and mixed-income residential offering. Maboneng was born. Named for the Sotho word for 'place of light', the precinct represents an enlightened community in Joburg's eastern CBD.
Main Street Life, 12 Decades Hotel, Revolution House, The Main Change and Fox Street Studios came next - all well-designed and unique mixed-use spaces that encourage entrepreneurship, culture, urbanism, creative expression and design.
