Property Description

The site is in a prime commercial industrial location near the corner of the La Rochelle and Turfontein Roads in Trojan, Johannesburg. This is a prominent site with good exposure for any business. There are multiple access points to the property from 3 sides and makes it easy to access from all directions. The property is made up of several stands which have been consolidated.

This is a unique property due to its location and configuration. Rarely have we come across a commercial property of this nature that has the large industrial space and yard available, and the security and diversity of the residential portion. 

From the La Rochelle roadside, the building structure has 2 floors of accommodation above ground, 1st and 2nd which have been converted to rooms. These are made up of 21 residential rooms all with prepaid electricity and separate meters. There are fourteen (14) one bedrooms with common bathrooms, and seven (7) two-bedroom units with bathrooms en suite (their own). Together this rental income is +_R40.0k per month. 

The property is currently configured with two units on the ground floor within the industrial section. These are divided according to the two tenant requirements. Most of the partitioning is temporary, with some bricks and mortar, so could be easily moved to suit future plans. These are shown on the attached plans and shaded in colour for easy reference. Blue is tenant 1 - the Bakery supplier. Mustard is tenant 2 – supplier to the hospitality industry.

Area One – Tenant One is first on your left as you enter the security gate into the premises. The is a fence with a separate security gate within the yard to access area one (this is not shown on the plan, but in the images). This tenant is a supplier to the bakery industry and has been in occupation for some time, this size (excl. yard) is +_2760m2.
