Nicol Main

Bryanston, Johannesburg

Demonstrating our Dedication to Longevity, Nicol Main is a Sustainable Premium Development

Named in 1949 and officially declared as a suburb in Sandton in 1969, Bryanston has continued to develop into one of Johannesburg’s more upper class and affluent areas. With its sought after residences, Bryanston also boasts plenty prominent organisations’ offices – like Dimension Data, Tiger Brands, GlaxoSmithKline and Microsoft.

More recently, Joe Public – one of South Africa’s biggest creative and advertising agencies – also made Bryanston their new head office. They strategically opted for more than 3000m2 of bespoke P-grade office space.

Reflecting the perfect balance between art and functionality, these remarkable offices are but one of the superior commercial buildings that stand tall in the Nicol Main Office Park developed by Stratford Property Ventures.



The Story of Nicol main


Stratford Property Ventures acquired the land by tender from Telkom. Hereafter, we attended to the rezoning and provision of services for the land.

2007 -2009

Phase 1 of Nicol Main was commenced and completed. This included the completion of premium office space on four to five levels that also featured double-level basement parking. This phase was occupied by the head offices Continental Outdoor Media and Boogertman and Partners Architects.


With commencement of Phase 2 of Nicol Main well underway, prospective tenants started readying themselves for moving to this prestigious new office space from mid-2011. Yum International Restaurants are located in this phase.


The second half of 2012 saw the commencement of Phase 3 which was taken up by Jardine LLyod and Thomson.


Tenants who opted for office space completed during Phase 3 of Nicol Main occupied their offices in the first half of 2013. The Phase 4 space was now letting for occupation during 2014.


Phase 4 was completed and became the head office for Joe Public.

What once housed the derelict remains of Bryanston’s old Post Office, now proudly boasts prestigious and sought after office space in an area that promises to sustain urban growth for the foreseeable future.

After having played an integral role in the development of the larger Bryanston precinct over many years, the development of Nicol Main by Stratford Property Ventures again attests to the unparalleled foresight and turnkey approach that maximises the sustainability and longevity of our developments.
