Located in southwest Johannesburg, directly on the busy interchange between the E3 Eastern bypass and Marlboro Drive.
Conveniently located next to the N3 Highway / Marlboro Drive interchange, Marlboro Station provides access to the suburbs of Marlboro, Linbro Park, Alexandra and Rembrandt Park.
The Jukskei River borders the site’s western edge, whilst a rail station and train track border its southern edge.
The site is city-owned and currently undeveloped. The area has huge potential to be transformed into a Transit Oriented Development (TOD), but is currently unsafe, and faces major issues such as river pollution, flooding, and growing informal settlements along the river.
Approx. site area
Proposals should seek to reinvent the area into a green and thriving TOD, specifically considering the following priorities:
Improve the area’s connections to public transport (Gautrain station)
Develop social and affordable housing.
Create community facilities and enhance open public space.
Implement measures to mitigate the impacts of flooding and polluted water.
