The vision for a modern, integrated, 3236m2 multipurpose centre in Midrand, Region A, is a step closer with the first phase of the development now completed.

As the construction of the next phase of the facility takes centre stage, a new soccer pitch, multi-purpose court and grandstands are visible at the Kaalfontein Multipurpose Centre, which is poised to become a hub of recreational excellence.

The Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA) is implementing the Kaalfontein Multipurpose Centre on behalf of the City of Johannesburg’s Community Development. The facility will benefit the residents of Kaalfontein, Allandale, Ebony Park and Ivory Park.

The scope of works for phase one entailed the construction of the platforms, perimeter fence, service reticulations (water, sanitation, stormwater, electrical power) and the construction of a guardhouse.

Once completed, the Kaalfontein Multipurpose Centre will stand a 3236m2 facility that will offer an unparalleled array of recreational amenities for residents and visitors alike.

Phase two of the project, which has now commenced, entails the construction of the main building works. Phase two will go a long way in realising the fully fledged facility consisting of a new double-storey administration and office building, community hall, library, learning centre, offices, and community hall.

The facility will cater to all age groups and interests and promote health, well-being, and community engagement. Phase One encompassed a range of key features, including a new:

  • Soccer pitch,
  • Multipurpose courts
  • Grandstands
  • Paving walkways

“Despite the challenges faced, the project thus far demonstrates the dedication and commitment of the JDA. This phase brings us closer to delivering an exceptional multipurpose centre,” said Siyabonga Genu, the Executive Manager Project Implementation at the JDA.

The Kaalfontein Multipurpose Centre is in line with the City of Johannesburg’s 2040 Growth and Development Strategy. The facility forms part of the City of Johannesburg’s strategy to meet this demand for new social infrastructure to fulfil the broader regeneration objectives, including transforming communities, skills growth, employment creation, quality of life and affording communities access to recreational spaces.

The facility will supplement the various JDA developments that have been taking place in Kaalfontein, including the Kaalfontein Intersection Upgrade and the recently upgraded state-of-the-art, eco-friendly Kaalfontein Clinic.
