Called the "new Maboneng," Victoria Yards in Lorentzville/Bez Valley launched in 2018. This 30 000m² of industrial space is home to many established and up-and-coming artists. One of the most prominent tenants is photographer Roger Ballen. There will also be an art gallery, as well as a craft brewery.
What Makes This Place Different?
Victoria Yards is an inner-city landscape completely different to anything Joburg currently offers. An eco-system where tenants thrive as a community, Victoria Yards presents a uniquely integrated urban complex. It is as much about social development as it is about commercial enterprise. This development is spearheaded by Brian Green, part-owner of Group 44 (the developers behind 44 Stanley in Milpark and 107 Bree Street in Cape Town). To Brian, this is a "dream project." The idea is to involve the local community in the project by way of vegetable gardens, skills upliftment programmes and job creation.
