A REPORT ON A HERITAGE IMPACT ASSESSMENT FOR THE PROPOSED 012CENTRAL UPGRADE, PRETORIA, CITY OF TSHWANE, GAUTENG PROVINCE

Archaetnos cc was appointed by Delacon Planning to conduct a heritage impact assessment for the proposed upgrade of certain buildings, called the 012Central fa├žade upgrade. This is on Erf 3593, in Helen Joseph Street (Church Street), Pretoria. This is in the City of Tshwane, Gauteng Province.

The project firstly entails the upgrade of 7 buildings, mostly to the facades thereof. This is done to enable the leasing of these to respective clients.

Six of the buildings are older than 60 years but has been adapted over the years. Resultantly it varies in heritage significance, but none is pristine. Therefore, these changes may be allowed. Permission is also requested for the possible future demolition of these four buildings.

The applicable social consultation has also been done, consisting of site notices and newspaper advertisements. No comments were received.

The development may therefore continue. It is recommended that this HIA report be approved by the PHRA-G and that the proposed changes to the buildings be allowed.
