"Designed in 1939 by the highly regarded architect Gordon Leith in the stripped down Neo Classical style, Rand Water Board is widely considered one of Johannesburg’s most architecturally exceptional buildings." (McKechnie & Keeling)

This landmark building has been neglected for years. It forms part of the proposed Kopanong Precinct (Gauteng Provincial Government Precinct) so there is some hope for adaptive reuse. Unfortunately the Kopanong Project has been hit by delay after delay and many activists are cynical about promises to bring the building back to life.
