Brickfields Social Housing

Inner City, Johannesburg


The Brickfields Social Housing Precinct is located in the inner city of Johannesburg, close to the Mandela Bridge and within the site of the historic brickfields that dates back to the 1890s. The overall development consists of three separate precincts and offers a model for economically and socially sustainable housing provision. It is a mixed use development that, in addition to residential units, provides retail units, live-work units and community facilities.
