Rosebank, a vibrant & exciting cosmopolitan suburb, is one of Johannesburg’s most sought-after locations for commercial and residential property. 

In recent years Rosebank has seen a major commercial facelift, most notably in the redevelopment of The Zone @ Rosebank, the Rosebank Mall, and the migration of large corporate head offices to the area. Residential property has followed this redevelopment trend as the demand for high-end city-living in the area increases. 

With its world-class shopping, restaurants, bars, schools, hotels and the Gautrain, all just meters away, Rosebank is an attractive option for city dwellers and for those whose offices are now in the area.  It is within close proximity to other areas such as Sandton, so it benefits largely from the world-class road network in and around the area as well.  Some prominent schools in the area include Rosebank Primary School, St Teresa's School, Kingsmead College, Vuleka Primary School and Saxonwold Primary School.

Add to this the rapid expansion of infrastructure, many of Johannesburg's premium shopping centres, gourmet restaurants, art galleries, a thriving nightlife, and a host of trendy cafes, bars and clubs, along with its prime location, and it's easy to see why it is predicted that Rosebank will continue to grow exponentially for the foreseeable future.

Rosebank is a well-established mixed-use commercial node which was one of the first nodes in

Johannesburg to benefit from the decentralisation of office users. The area is bordered by similar

nodes like Dunkeld and Hyde Park and is in close proximity to both the Illovo Boulevard office precinct

and the mixed-use Melrose Arch development. A few of Rosebank’s key advantages is that it is well-placed between central Johannesburg and Sandton, has a Gautrain Station and enjoys one of the best Live, Work and Play ratios in any South African Suburb. Its population has grown steadily year on year for the last 5 years.

Jan Smuts Avenue is one of the main arterials to and from the Johannesburg CBD. Major routes like the M1 highway are easily accessible. Amenities in close proximity include various educational facilities, Rosebank Medical Centre, various hotels and numerous large shopping malls.

Gautrain Rosebank Station is approximately 1km away and the property is on the Gautrain bus route.

President Place is located on the corner of Jan Smuts Avenue and Bolton Road in Rosebank, with the entrance along Hood Avenue. The subject property is located on the second floor of the North Wing.


The modern office unit comprises two reception areas, three boardrooms, 12 closed offices, an open plan office which accommodates workstations for 60 people, two kitchens, two filing rooms and a server room.

The unit is designed to accommodate two separate tenants if necessary – one occupying 368sqm and the other 560sqm. Alternative configurations may be possible as there are two entrances to the unit from the foyer.  There are also 34 dedicated parking bays assigned to the subject unit. These parking bays have been rented to the tenant for the last 7 years.

The unit is accessed by means of three lifts, which are accessed by a security controlled common reception area.
