New Developments at The Zone @ Rosebank
Regent Place, which sits at the heart of the Rosebank precinct, was constructed in 1992 and since then has gone through little change. With the pace of development in the greater Rosebank precinct was clearly time to consider a facelift and the better integration into The Zone as well as the Mall of Rosebank and The new Link being constructed.
The building will be receiving a new façade giving it a more contemporary look, a new transparent roof, which will ensure that it has all weather usability while still maintaining the outdoor feel that has made Regent place a landmark in Rosebank.
On the ground floor the shops are getting a makeover with a full height shopfronts and new mall tiles. This will also see the creation of an exhibition space on the Ground floor. A new tenant mix will ensure that the fashion element for which Regent Place was traditionally known return and be strengthened.
The first floor sees the biggest transformation with walkways being widened and a bridge linking The Zone to Regent place. While the second floor sees a makeover and upgrade of the offices, giving smaller tenants the opportunity to operate from central Rosebank in a prime office environment.
In addition to the above the lifts are being relocated to more adequately address the movement of people from the Basement to the 2nd Floor.
Overall the redevelopment will result in a contemporary building in the heart of Johannesburg, connecting the precinct.
