Johannesburg CBD Industrial Property

Johannesburg CBD: Industrial Property Rental Opportunities


The Johannesburg CBD consists mostly of commercial and retail properties, with various small warehouses. The CBD does not have large industrial property spaces so, if you want to rent this type of space in the Johannesburg CBD, you would have to broaden your search a little to other areas beyond but near the city centre. You can find such property on the East Rand, in the northern parts of Johannesburg such as Randburg, in Midrand, and to the south of the CBD in Steeledale. We briefly look at our industrial property portfolio for Johannesburg and surrounds, giving you an indication of properties with easy access to the CBD via the highways and main routes.


S&J Industrial Estate in Germiston – 13 km East of the Johannesburg CBD


The development is built on an old Simmer & Jack Mines gold mine. Though the mine is no longer in operation, the land is still valuable real estate. With space needed for industrial operations in Gauteng, the development is very conveniently located. The mine was originally established by John Jack and August Simmer. John came from the farm Germiston near Glasgow. Pay-dirt was found on Elandsfontein and back in the 1920s, the Rand Refinery was opened in Germiston. The Gold Rush eventually stopped and with gold mining in the area ceasing to be profitable, the mine closed.


Considered the future of industrial developments in Gauteng, this development located at the Geldenhuys interchange on the N3 boasts excellent visibility. When it comes to ease of access, this property ticks all the boxes. It is a 210-hectare prime precinct with world-class infrastructure such as a large conference centre, fibre connectivity, and 24-hour access control. Regardless of your industrial operations, you will be able to find the right space in this benchmark development. The S&J development’s value is in its features such as excellent infrastructure, roads, gardens, green spaces (such as its wetlands), and its superb security. This is the estate to choose if you want property space in a prime area. Units ranging in size from 1000 to 100 000 m2 will be available. As such, you can rent space for imports, warehousing, logistics, and industrial operations.
