Maboneng is spreading further east, with the redevelopment of the industrial Hallmark House building. Built in the 1970s in Siemert Road, the 17-storey building will be turned a residential building/retail centre/arts and entertainment space/boutique hotel. designed by a world-famous African architect David Adjaye
“HALLMARK HOUSE is the newest addition to the highly successful Maboneng precinct. It’s being revolutionised by a global team of professionals. Visionary Jonathan Liebmann of Propertuity and architect David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates have come together with Arup Engineers and Mace Project Managers to rebuild the most desirable lifestyle space on the African continent. Both Liebmann and Adjaye have taken space in the building.”-Propertuity
“I am very excited about Hallmark House. I could have gone anywhere in SA and built a luxury living space but my focus is redeveloping buildings in areas with strong potential. This part of Johannesburg has tremendous potential and Hallmark House will be the start of a new wing of Maboneng for the city,” -Adjaye
“I think it will be a double take with a lot of people, because you will look at this building and think that it is in some other city, and then you will realise its in Johannesburg; it’s in Africa,”-Adjaye
“The transformation of Hallmark House is an opportunity to apply fresh thinking to urban community and to address changing lifestyles with a more fluid approach to the way we inhabit cities,”-Adjaye
“The rate at which Maboneng Precinct has developed since 2008 is solid proof that there’s a thirst for more world-class regeneration of residential, retail and commercial space in Johannesburg’s CBD. Hallmark House will be meeting that need, and more”-Liebmann
