Affordable Living at Drivelines Studios

A brand spanking new urban development using upcycled shipping containers has been officially opened in Joburg's hipster haven, Maboneng. What used to be a car repair shop is now a massive mixed-use block fitted with housing and retail and restaurant stores. This development has brought affordable housing to this smorgasbord of an area.

Maboneng's developer and management company, Propertuity, is behind this development called Drivelines Studios. Container construction is the latest in a growing trend of sustainable development and Drivelines marks a first, as a multistorey apartment block made up of multiple containers. Note that these studio apartments are not for sale, and rentals start at R3 950 per month.

The project was launched in 2014, led by Propertuity and designed by Lot-Ek Architecture & Design (the company behind Puma City and the Boom Community in California), and was completed and opened for occupation in September 2017.

Iconic New Landmark Development Set For Linden

Linden is evolving and to complement this change, a fresh view on apartment living will be hitting the streets of this fast, up-and-coming neighbourhood. For years, the original building of Fifty Five Linden Lifestyle Apartments was unfinished. During this time, it has been an ever-changing canvas for graffiti street art as well as a vintage car yard. This creative spirit will remain and is already part of the overall character of the new building.

Fifty Five Linden

The new look will echo the heart of the Linden village – it’s unique without trying too hard. The building is set to be the cornerstone of Linden’s apartment living scene with its fresh, creative design, mod finishes, affordable units and sought-after location.

The development features:

The one-bedroom units start from R875 000 and the two-bedroom units start from R1 205 000.

Fifty Five Linden

A Little Bit About Linden

Linden is a highly desirable area – and for good reason. The suburb vibe is understatedly chilled with an old-school village aura that you can’t help but want to be part of. On top of that, uber-cool shops are opening on every corner and artisanal stores draw you in with delicious smells and trendy wears.

Those who have been craving the urban culture that’s been missing for so long will be happy to know that it’s now on the doorstep of one of our favourite neighbourhoods. If you’re interested in that extra something, feel inspired by Bauhaus-esque on-trend design and are ready for the brand-new-and-out-of-the-box living space, this is the place for you.

We are all aware of the fact that university fees are very high in South Africa, and that many varsity students – especially those who are not from Johannesburg – cannot afford accommodation while studying. From undergraduates living in homeless shelters to postgraduates working two jobs to keep a roof over their heads, finding a decent place to stay without breaking the bank is as important to the success of a degree as overpriced textbooks and attending lectures are. According to the City of Johannesburg, some 20% of Johannesburg residents live in abject poverty, and a big number of those are made up of varsity students.

Acc

This article is not about scholars without roofs over their heads but a rough guide to student accommodation in and around town. Joburg is a vibrant city with a rich and exciting nightlife, thanks to the two universities, UJ and WITS. A lot of businesses, such as the restaurants and coffee shops of Braamfontein and Melville, to name a few, rely on student occupancy. Because of such a high influx of students, which increases each year, accommodation is always in demand. After a quick search-engine investigation, one quickly notices that finding a place to stay is more daunting than one would expect. Reality is a bitter pill and a list of things should be taken into consideration, such as the distance needed to travel to and from varsity, general safety and the de facto tie breaker: price.

Acc1

A student at UJ’s first choice would be one of the many residences situated around their Bunting Road, Doornfontein and Soweto Campuses. Monthly levies at these dormitories range from R1 000 to R5 000 per room which, in itself, is a staggering amount of money. Because on-campus accommodation prices are through the roof, many students turn to the private rental market. Rooms can be found on OLX from as little as R500 per month - the only problem is that many of these are shared rooms, leaving very little room for privacy and, in most cases, the cheaper the rent, the dodgier the area. One such example would be apartments and hostels situated in and around Brixton’s shopping district. Here, personal advertisements for student accommodation are taped to every other street lamp and electrical box. A more palatable option would be for students to look towards Westdene and Melville for a place to stay as the crime rate is lower, but the prices are higher. Everything from shared apartments above real estate agencies to beautiful garden cottages close to the dam can be found here and prices range from R1 350 to R4 600.

Acc2

Those studying at WITS have it somewhat easier as rental properties within the city are cheaper, more spacious and, believe it or not, a lot safer. South Point, located on De Korte Street in Braamfontein, offers comfortable living within walking distance from WITS’ main campus. The only problem with this is, of course, that it’s fairly expensive. Alternatively, students have been known to live in communes in Hillbrow and surrounding areas ,which often works out very well. A two-bedroom flat can cost as little as R1 350 per month, and a top floor loft can be rented at around
R5 000, split between four people.

Acc3

With the City of Johannesburg’s 20-year plan to link all neighbouring towns such as Roodepoort, Randburg and Sandton to the city with dedicated cycle lanes, student accommodation will become more accessible and readily available. But, until then, we’ll have to make use of the resources available such as contacting letting agents, scrounging around the web and searching through classifieds.
