Braamfontein Improvement District
Did you know the Braamfontein Improvement District is 10 years old?
Legislated in 2004 to protect the investments made by the property owners and the JDA, Braamfontein has changed substantially over the past 10 years.
Starting out as a space for corporate head offices, Braamfontein now boasts some of the best public art in the city. It also offers visitors a wide variety of really great coffee shops, new restaurants are coming into the area all the time, boutique clothing stores are popping up around every corner, art galleries abound, night clubs and bars are jammed packed over the weekend, students are flocking to the education and entrepreneur hubs as well as international NGO's! It is all happening in Braamfontein!
The job of the Braamfontein Improvement District is to watch over and maintain the public space. When an area looks clean and is well maintained by cleaners constantly moving around the area it feels more inviting, it gives you a sense of comfort. Seeing our Public Safety Ambassadors (PSA's) posted throughout the district creates a sense of safety becuase you know someone is constantly monitoring the space. But our PSA's are not static security guards. If you need any assistance, please don't hesitate to ask, out Ambassadors are there to help you with all issues Braamfontein related.
