A REPORT ON A HERITAGE IMPACT ASSESSMENT FOR A PROPOSED RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT ON ERVEN RE/469 AND 1/469, BROOKLYN, CITY OF TSHWANE, GAUTENG PROVINCE
Archaetnos cc was appointed by Swart & Associates Architects to conduct a heritage impact assessment for a proposed residential development on Erven Re/469 and 1/469 in Brooklyn. This is in the City of Tshwane, Gauteng Province.
The project firstly entails the consolidation of the two erven, then the demolition of existing buildings on the properties and hereafter a residential development. This consist of 40 units, combined into four levels as well as a parking area and landscaped gardens. The erven lie on the corner of Justice Mahomed and Rupert Street, Brooklyn, Pretoria.
One of the existing buildings on the properties are older than 60 years but has been adapted over the years to such an extent that it has no inherent heritage importance left. Also, nothing else of heritage importance was noted.
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 demolition of the existing buildings on the three properties be approved.
