Maboneng, a Sotho word meaning “place of light”, is a fitting name for a district that has fast become a centre of creative energy for Johannesburg. Originally developed around the 1900’s this area of downtown Johannesburg, in more recent years, has existed in a state of decay. It wasn’t until 2008 when property developer Jonathan Liebmann (working with architect Enrico Daffonchio) transformed forgotten offices and warehouse spaces into, what is now known as, Arts on Main, that the precinct started to gain a new lease of life. The area now exists as a cultural oasis in the heart of Johannesburg and is a shining example of inner-city redevelopment. Pictured here is the late Victorian facade of the Cosmopolitan Hotel (Designed by brothers Arthur and Walter Reid in 1899) in start juxtaposition to two of the many contemporary graffiti murals that now line the fast changing neighbourhood.
