Construction of Divercity Urban Property Fund’s redevelopment of Jewel City is changing the face of Johannesburg’s CBD and revitalising six city blocks that have been closed to the public for decades. The development will be a mixed-use and amenity-rich affordable housing precinct.

The project commenced in October 2018, with phased completion expected from November 2019 until April 2020. Work has started on the first new residential building and, in addition, the first residential conversion of an existing building on site is now underway.
