Get To Know Our Newtown Rentals
Let’s take a look at some places in Newtown and what you can get when you collaborate with JHC.
When it comes to immersing yourself in the culture, the hustle and bustle, fun, entertainment, and education in the heart of Johannesburg’s Newtown, you don’t have to worry about finding a home with Johannesburg Housing Company (JHC) by your side. Your only stress will be which of our many homes to choose. But, because we believe in giving Johannesburg residents affordable housing in the heart of the city, our homes are the perfect haven you need after exploring the busy streets of Joburg. Let’s take a look at some places in Newtown and what you can get when you collaborate with JHC.
A quick fun fact about Brickfields is that it was built in 2005 on the site of the original brickfields (Newtown Precinct was named ‘brickfields’ in the 20th century, where the first bricks that were used to build the city were made), and was the first major housing project in the downtown Jozi, offering people affordable housing to help push their Egoli dreams.
The building is located on the corner of Gwigwi Mrwebi and Ntemi Piliso and is a walk away from Newtown Junction, the Market Theatre as well as Gallery, and many other attractions we will discuss at a later stage.
At Brickfields, you can choose between a bachelor, 1-bed, 2-bed, or 3-bedroom flat, and if you work from home, our WiFi-ready flats will make it easy for you to connect and get to work…and play.
If you are looking for an aesthetically pleasing flat to house your creativity, plants, artwork, and more, look no further. Heritage View at JHC offers you bachelor, 1, as well as 2-bedroom flats, so whether you are planning on staying alone or with a mate, partner, family, or children, you will be guaranteed a home for all…possibly one you’ll love.
It is close to Newtown Junction Mall and the abovementioned attractions, but it is also one of the buildings located closest to Nelson Mandela Bridge which connect Newtown and Braamfontein seamlessly, organically, and beautifully.
Here’s another fun fact for you; Legae Gardens is part of the popular Brickfields complex in Newtown. With secure parking, this building is perfect if you are looking for either a 1, 2, or 3-bedroom flat to rent. You can enjoy a sports field and playground for the little ones, and our flats, like Brickfields, also come ready for your WiFi needs.
If you love sitting outdoors with loved ones, seeing and partaking in some gardening, or have little ones that like to run around and play, Phumulani Gardens is the home for you. Here you have access to a playground, garden, as well as the many attractions that surround the city. You can choose between a bachelor, 1-bed, 2-bed, or 3-bedroom flat to rent at affordable rates.
Not So New, Yet So Timeless
While Newtown has been in existence for almost two decades, its attractions make it one of Jozi’s favourite destinations. Here you can enjoy theatre productions from renowned thespians and producers, and restaurants offering everything from South African dishes to some African and international selections too. Newtown is rich in pop culture; the entire Jozi, so to speak, but with Newtown being so closely located near Braamfontein, this means that you will not only experience an array of options for where to shop and eat but also where to have fun and immerse yourself in some culture. If you are a fashion lover and enthusiast, you are guaranteed a lot of inspiration from the many stores and influencers found in Newtown’s Workshop. Plus, you will be located in the part of the city where there is lots of fashion right before your eyes, so don’t worry about inspiration; it’s here.
