It doesn't yet appear to have been gazetted by the City yet, but the proposal is for the building to be used either for a motor car showroom or a car lot. A copy of the proposal may be downloaded by clicking here.
SAPRA is attempting to get further details.
New post added 9 September 2023. We have just been informed that the application to the City was withdrawn before it was advertised. We are not sure whether this was as a result of the keen interest shown by SAPRA or whether there were other factors involved. However, it is still important to be eternally vigilant to keep our suburbs from degrading.

SAPRA has received notice of an application now made to the City of Johannesburg for the rezoning of this property to permit "A 'place of amusement' for live entertainment, a jazz venue and general function only, subject to amended conditions". The application argues that: "The application represents a natural tendency to accommodate the needs of a dynamic and growing society within Johannesburg and it is contended that the application, as proposed, wil most effectively tend to promote the purposes of the City of Johannesburg Land Use Scheme, 2018, and should, therefore, be approved."
