New Braamfontein Lofts is an exciting new urban development that aims reshape how Joburgers think about urban living by transforming what was once a telecommunications exchange in Braamfontein West, into a visionary new residential precinct of spacious loft-style apartments, filled with light and piled high with unique features recalling the precinct's unusual industrial heritage.

The sprawling complex includes studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments spread across a series of buildings that cleverly incorporate the old Telcom facility's original architecture such as high ceilings, skylights, polished concrete, brick and old industrial fittings transformed into cool water features. Braamfontein Lofts also connects to two similar developments in the same precinct, Sontonga Lofts and The Exchange, that have similarly transformed parts of the old Post Office sorting office telecommunications exchange into stylish apartments offering loft-style living.

Envisaging a residential complex that is also a community, the precinct will also include a remarkable 'green belt' park space flanked by towering blue gum trees and communal areas that are designed to foster a sense of spacious living within easy reach of the city. 

Located on the edges of the Wits and University of Johannesburg campuses and a stone's throw from the 44 Stanley and Rand Steam boutique shopping complexes, New Braamfontein Lofts' most impressive feature is its verdant 'green belt' an expansive tree-lined railway siding (which once used to bring mail into the old Post Office sorting offices) that is being transformed into a communal resident's park with space for morning jogs, a playground and outdoor gym.
