Telkom Tower and Hillbrow Precinct Development

  • The Hillbrow Tower is a landmark that would be a significant tourist draw-card if the Telkom-owned building was open to the public. There has been an ongoing push with Telkom and the City / JDA to do just that. The tower as a public artwork is at the centre of an art precinct designed to encourage art and culture as an economic activity.

  • The precinct – bound 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.

  • The redevelopment of the Hillbrow Tower precinct would create an art hub in the inner city
  • The JDA has improved the liveability of the Hillbrow Tower precinct over the next five years. Located close to transport routes, arts and culture hubs, the area has been redeveloped to improve pedestrian linkages and access around refurbished public spaces.
