Rand Steam Laundries - City of Joburg

April 2019 marks the reconstruction of the historic buildings demolished in 2008 without permission and in contravention of the Provisional Declaration of the site by the Provincial Heritage Resources Authority Gauteng. In the absence of official sanction or prosecution, it fell to the residents’ associations and the Parktown and Westcliff Heritage Trust (now the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation), to hold the site frozen for nearly ten years whilst negotiations proceeded with the previous owners to rezone the property subject to the reconstruction of the buildings along Napier Road.
