Bloemfontein, is the capital of Free State province and it is the judicial capital of South Africa. While being known for its scenic beauty, with natural and manmade attractions, such as King’s Park and the Franklin Game Reserve, it is also a major mining and agricultural hub.

Bloemfontein Central is accessible from the N8. The N8 highway also intersects with the N1 towards the north-west of the Bloemfontein CBD, linking Gauteng, Bloemfontein, and Cape Town, therefore allowing for high volumes of passing vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

ABSA United is located on Charlotte Maxeke Street, a major arterial road through the centre of the Bloemfontein Central. The property is conveniently located, with easy access to public transport and nearby services such as the Bloemfontein Train Station, Hoffman Square and various shopping malls.  The CBD is also a prominent mixed-use area which offers a combination of high-rise office buildings that accommodates tenants such as DPW and FET College. The prominent Hoffman Square is located north of the property.   

The property enjoys easy access to the required amenities and main arterials which include Wes Burger Street, Oos Burger Street and Nelson Mandela Drive.

The immediate area surrounding the property is in line with the typical central business area character of major city centres, comprising a number of mixed commercial, residential and retail buildings.


The property comprises a square shaped, north-west facing stand measuring 1,232m² which is situated at 64 Charlotte Maxeke Street and located on the corner of the aforementioned and Floreat Avenue in the CBD of Bloemfontein.

This property is improved with a part seven storey mixed use building that comprises retail shops on the ground floor and offices on the upper floors. It offers a collective GLA of 6,129m².

The layout is similar across all floors and are accessed by means of concrete staircases and two central lifts.

Internal finishes of the offices are of a high standard – largely wooden veneer flooring with some area having carpets or ceramic tiles. There are a number of strong rooms and offices are neat and well maintained.

A total of 37 basement parking bays are provided.
