The JPC Extends an Open Invitation to the Metro Centre Piazza

Transforming the Metro Centre precinct into a green Piazza, the JPC extends an open invitation encouraging Joburg residents and city visitors to pause, take time to connect with the community and revel in the evolving Jozi skyline. What was once a concrete Metro Centre Precinct has since been softened by the new Council Chambers creating a space for a revitalized and modern Piazza. Set to become the “town crier” for those who live and work in Braamfontein and surrounds, the first of many place-makers earmarked by the Johannesburg Property Company as part of their rejuvenation project, the Metro Centre Piazza has created for a communal space allowing for locals to meet, relax socialize and gather at. 

The new JPC Metro Centre Piazza offers a flexible design that can be transformed to suit the changing seasons or various events that invite the community to mix and relax in this family friendly environment. Equipped with a large outdoor digital screen that will not only showcase the speaker sessions in the newly built Council Chambers above, but will also screen features of national interest such as soccer, world news and on the odd night, a movie under the stars. 

The Council Chamber offers shade from the harsh sun during the Joburg summer months while softening the winter rays through the additional use of specifically placed trees and seat planters on the rainbow paved walkways. Reminiscent of the “long walk to freedom” as experienced by Nelson Mandela when he left prison after 27 years, the launch of the Piazza comes 23 years after President Mandela exited the voting station on the 27th April 1994 with the words “We are starting a new era of hope, reconciliation and nation-building”.

Shaped along with the walkways, is the creative element of a skate park, outdoor chess set and table tennis as well as a large outdoor gym in the surrounding gardens which will feature during the completion of Phase Two developments. 

Designed around a community element that is now fast becoming a true sign of a merging Johannesburg, solar street lighting forms part of the 5 Star Green award already received for this new eco-friendly island. Charging stations and free Wifi for the fast growing mobile friendly generation has also been scheduled as part of Phase Two installations ensuring that no sector of the community is excluded. 

Gone are the days when littering was an acceptable practice, further Phase Two developments will see the new Piazza adequately fitted with reduce, reuse and recycle bins as a strong reminder to those using the park to keep the area clean and in support of the Green Star Award. 

A planned installation of a pergola will provide a pleasant and green encounter for those enjoying the pavement dining experience as restaurants and pavement cafes are scheduled to open over the next few months. The council dining room will also extend into the Piazza and although safely enclosed, it will share the shade and space with this new community Piazza. 

As the sun sets after a productive day at the Council Chamber or following a leisurely visit to the Piazza, councilors and visitors alike can enjoy a gentle walk to Park Station and the world class Gautrain, renowned for having led the way to the various changes that have uplifted not only the Johannesburg community but our facilities and our spirits too. Visitors may also access the Council Chamber and Metro Centre Piazza via the Hop-On Hop-Off Red Tour Buses offered by citysightseeing.co.za.

While the Council Chamber is open weekdays from 8am to 4:30pm the Metro Centre Piazza is open for public access throughout the week and on weekends.

Joburg Property Company (JPC), managers of the City of Johannesburg (CoJ) property portfolio, transforms the Metro Center precinct into a green Piazza

The Metro Centre Piazza is set to become the “town crier” for those who live and work in the surrounds of Braamfontein, just north of the City itself. Gone is the concrete Metro Centre Precinct softened now by the new and majestic Council Chambers allowing space for a new and modern Piazza.

Built between 1973-1977, the Metro Centre island was built to separate residential Hillbrow from the business centre of Braamfontein. With residential on one side and business on the other, it’s design created a barrier that dared any pedestrian to dodge the traffic that was uncharacteristically split from a one way into a partial two way. This made it difficult for any out of town or rural driver to understand how to traverse this concrete island.

With the introduction of the Metro Centre Piazza this area now has a chance to develop into not only a pedestrian friendly area but also an area where the community at large can relax and enjoy the Highveld sunshine whenever possible. Be it to stop and have a sandwich at lunch time or simply walk through from one place to another taking in the changing Jozi skyline.

With a new and flexible design, this space can be transformed to suit the changing seasons or events that invite the community to mix and relax in a friendly environment with the whole family. The Piazza also allows for daily use and weekend chill sessions.   A large outdoor digital screen will not only showcase the speaker sessions in the newly built Council Chambers above, but will also screen features of national interest such as soccer, world news and on the odd night, a movie under the stars.

The Council Chambers gives shade from the harsh sun during summer and softens the winter rays through the additional use of specifically placed trees and seat planters on the rainbow paved walkways. Reminiscent of the “long walk to freedom” as experienced by Nelson Mandela when he left prison after 27 years. Ironically the launch of the Piazza comes 23 years after President Mandela exited the voting station on the 27th April 1994 with the words “We are starting a new era of hope, reconciliation and nation-building”.

Shaped along with those walkways, is the creative element of a skate park, outdoor chess set and table tennis. A large outdoor gym in the surrounding gardens are a great way to walk the talk for those wishing to expend unused energy or warm up before a run through the safe walkway. All of these features coming into being during Phase One.

Designed around a community element that is now fast becoming a true sign of merging Johannesburg, solar street lighting forms part of the 5 Star Green award already received for this new eco friendly island. Charging stations and free Wifi for the fast growing mobile friendly generation is scheduled for Phase Two to ensure that no sector of the community is excluded.

Reduce, reuse and recycle bins, also part of Phase Two, will be a strong reminder to those using the park to keep the area clean and in keeping with the Green Star Award. Gone are the days when littering was an acceptable practice.

Also forming part of Phase Two is a pergola, which will provide a pleasant and green experience for those enjoying the pavement dining experience as restaurants and pavement cafes open over the next few months. The council dining room will extend into the Piazza and although safely enclosed, it will share the shade and space with this new, community Piazza. The first of many Placemakers earmarked by the Johannesburg Property Company as part of their rejuvenation project.

As the sun sets after a long satisfying day in the Council Chambers, councillors can enjoy the walk to the Gautrain Station on the rainbow pathway, on their way to the worldclass Gautrain station, housed in the nearby Park Station that led the way to these changes that uplift not only our communities but our facilities and our spirits.

Setting the Standard for Service Delivery – CoJ Induction for Board Members

On the 18th May 2018, Executive Mayor, Herman Mashaba, was joined by colleagues, shareholders and board members of various city entities in the signing of the Shareholder Compact and Service Delivery Agreements between the city and all related entities.

The Mayor said of the Shareholder Compact, “These are scorecards to measure the success of our entities and service providers.”

This being the first time Executive Mayor Herman Mashaba has signed the Shareholder Compact since being inducted as the first citizen, marks a key event for his governance. As stated by the Mayor himself, “If there is no measurement, there is no way to gauge success and improvements,” showing the need for a formal agreement between shareholders and entities. The Shareholder Compact and Service Delivery Agreement acts, according to City Manager, Dr. Ndivhoniswani Lukhwareni, as a basis to “synchronise expectations and create a uniform standard of delivery.”

The nine entities present in the signing of both documents included: Joburg Water; City Power; Pikitup; Joburg Property Company; Joburg Market; Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo; Joburg City Theatres; Metropolitan Trading Company and the Johannesburg Development Agency.

Lael Bethlehem, Chairperson of City Power, relayed the importance of all entities working together. In the case of City Power, “…working together to keep the lights on and revitalise infrastructure, all this being part of the agreements being signed today.”

Chairperson of Johannesburg Water, Getty Simelane, noted the value in such an agreement as a benchmark, setting the minimum expectations required of each service provider. Simelane, expounded on the role of being a shareholder and the responsibility to take into account the broader expectations, both politically and of the people in the city itself.

In his keynote speech, Mayor Herman Mashaba made reference to the past, where some officials and entities colluded with corrupt companies for their own financial gain. However, without dwelling on the past, he made a strong statement that, “We must look into the future and create that future.” Referencing Diphetogo, “A programme born out of the realisation that tough decisions need to be made to pull Johannesburg back on the right path,” the Mayor said the only way to create the future we strive for is with real change.

The Executive Mayor and all those on his team are fully committed to making service delivery a priority for the City of Johannesburg, as such an Ethics Committee has been established with Acting Group Head of Corporate Governance, Raj Pillay, being appointed as the first ethics custodian. In his keynote speech, Executive Mayor Herman Mashaba said, “To ensure the city is working optimally for our people, we need to create a culture of ethical behavior and leadership…this is crucial because in so doing we can align ourselves to our shareholders.”

The Executive Mayor and his team are laying the foundation of a strong city, which the next government and the next generation can build on. “Once again making Johannesburg a city of golden opportunity for all.”
