Urban renewal in Braamfontein
Have posted before on what is new and happening in Braamfontein.
The ‘Renaissance’ includes:
- the Neighbourhood Goods Market
- the South Point building refurbishments for urban accommodation (sorely needed for Wits students)
- and the public art, starting with Van den Berg’s iconic Eland marking the entry into Braamies from the north and including the quirky metal trees that dot the pavements
There is an opportunity to see all these new developments.
Walking tour of Braamfontein
The tour will be led by Alex Parker and Clare Eisenstein of the Parktown Westcliff Heritage Trust on Saturday 26th November.
It starts starts at 9.30. Meet at the Holy Trinity Church, 16 Siemens Street, Braamfontein (diagonally opposite the Eland).
NB if you park there cars will have to be moved not later than 1.00 pm because there is a wedding taking place that afternoon.
