Hillbrow is a famous neighbourhood in the inner city of Johannesburg. The precinct is defined by the walking radius of approximately 1km around the Hillbrow Tower and transects the Hillbrow and Berea areas which are roughly bounded by Clarendon and Willie Streets in the north, Joe Slovo Drive in the east, Smit Street in the south and Hospital Street in the west. In 2015/16 Phase 2 of the project focused on the public environment upgrade of Goldreich and Nugget Streets in Hillbrow. As a key part of the development facilitation work in this area, the JDA has engaged Telkom in a property development to establish an enterprise hub at the base of the Hillbrow Tower; and to create economic development opportunities for the creative industries in Hillbrow. In addition, Telkom has agreed to open the Tower as a tourist attraction, enabling visitors to travel to the top of the tower for breath-taking views of the City. The launch of this event is due to take place in 2017/18.
