SIDE OF MABONENEG PRECINCT.
Towards the end of the east of the Johannesburg CBD there is a beautiful city development called the MABONENG Precinct. I’ve been twice and I liked it but there were a couple of things that I did not understand that I honestly didn’t like.
I went today to meet with a representative from Propertuity which is the development company behind the MABONENG Precinct. I went there to learn a bit about the differences between the Chinese retail and how to do business when compared to other retail spaces. Someone who deals with sales who was more than willing to help me and ended up showing me around the residential property that is currently for sale in the precinct.
I don’t want to go into the differences much as I do not know at this point what I will include in my final feature and I mean I must create suspense otherwise what’s the point right?
Someone told me that the precinct currently has 12 finished buildings but they currently own 40 buildings in the area which they plan to have completed in the next five years. This brings me to what I did not like about MABONENG initially.
I thought: “What on earth is the point of having this small are of beauty when the rest of the surrounding areas are pretty much run down?” Well I guess my question was answered today.
MABONENG is still a developing project and the main objective is to have a space where people can live, work and invest. I asked one of the tourist said at the end of the day the aim is to become a lot like New York City where people actually prefer to live in the city rather than in suburbia.
Oh how I would LOVE that. I believe the city is gorgeous and as we walked around today I noticed more and more just how stunning our city is. (Oh My Gosh I just referred to Johannesburg as my city. MIDRAND please do not kill me. I still love you.)
After walking around the residential property I grabbed some lunch on my lonesome then went on the free public art tour in the area. Now understand that I hate being alone. Not all the time but most of the time. I’m one of those people who would never dine alone or go to the movies alone, it just freaks me out.
I realised at the beginning of this project however that I would have to learn how to get out of my comfort zone and learn how to immerse myself in something alone and learn some valuable lessons. The street art tour was amazing and I will be posting some of the pictures later there are just so many.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.
Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...
CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...
M. Drewery: I did think I would be reading just another Atlantis archaeological adventure story when I came across this book. However I think it's fresh and very different to other approaches to the same historical mystery. The first chapter drew me in brilliantly. I'm not great at spotting technical writing...
harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.
Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.
