Kramerville

Kramerville is fast becoming a novelty retail hub and a fashionable business district. It has transformed from an industrial area into THE interior (and exterior) design & décor destination. Historically the fabric houses and wholesalers in Kramerville only sold to the trade. But times have changed and some of the best known furniture retailers have beautiful showrooms alongside the top fabric houses in the country. Kramerville has become the destination for anyone looking to invest in the beauty of their home, office, hotel developments etc.

JUST two years ago Kramerville was a neglected industrial area full of empty warehouses. It's transformation into a design and décor hub has been described as a phenomenon. The area is now a city improvement district under Urban Genesis, the same company that manages Sandton Central.

The transformation of Kramerville can be attributed to a number of factors. In 2005 the property owners had a vision for the area and identified a need to contribute private sector funds towards making the area safe and clean. By creating a legislated City Improvement District (CID), the property owners dedicated themselves to uplifting the area. The shift from wholesale to retail in the district has also had a huge impact on attracting the general public. The Kramerville Management District (KMD) is patrolled by Public Safety Ambassadors who not only provide security services for the public but also have the training to equip them to be general ambassadors for the area. The cleaners in Kramerville do general sweeping and refuse removal as well as maintaining the flower beds and trees.

Kramerville commercial property is highly sought-after for a number of reasons. Kramerville has the potential to become a rather quirky and exclusive shopping district in close proximity to Sandton, attracting smaller niche retail and manufacturing companies.  Kramerville has blossomed as a design hub and properties here offer high-end finishings, style and substance. Stores in the area have large open floor-plans providing ample room for showrooms for furniture, fabrics, ornaments and interior décor. Numerous restaurants and coffee shops have appeared, as well as managed informal traders, providing shoppers with places to rest and eat. Walkways between buildings are being established so that shoppers can move freely from one store to the next. The Gautrain Rapid Rail Network nearby provides a prompt and secure public transport option linking the northern suburbs with the city, OR Tambo International Airport, Midrand, Centurion and Pretoria.
