Melville Residents' Association: Heritage Portfolio

Dear Community,

An interesting new development, steeped in history, is starting to take shape in Richmond, Johannesburg, a stone’s throw from Milpark Hospital. Named Rand Steam, drawn from the location of the original Rand Steam Laundries and the Ama-washa site of the late nineteenth century.

The Moolman Group, as lead developers, in partnership with Jonker Evolution, Genesis Property Three and Group44, underguidance of the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation, are the collective driving force behind the reconstruction of this iconic streetscape, which will be packaged as a 5 100 m² convenience centre. This prime site, situated on the busy Barry Hertzog Avenue and Napier Street, is classified as a heritage site with some of the original structures still in place. Unique design elements, following the theme of the old Ama-washa and laundry, will allow for the combination of classic and modern architecture, interactive art and designer landscaping.

The distinctly innovative and upmarket shopping centre will have a strong focus on convenience and is envisioned to provide an exceptional shopping destination for the surrounding office, student and residential markets.Rand Steam will be anchored by major national retailers such as Pick n Pay, Woolworths Food and Clicks. These will be complemented by a comprehensive mix of quality brands such as Bootlegger Coffee Company, Curry Up, Col’Cacchio, Cowfish, Sorbet, Rain, Nap Living, LookIn Optometrist, Bonafide Barber and Dakota Lee and many more.

In addition to the exciting retail offering, shoppers will enjoy the convenience of ample, on-grade parking that will be enclosed, safe and secure.

Rand Steam is set to open 25 April 2019 at 09:00
