The Newtown cultural precinct in downtown Johannesburg has become a vibey, trendy location for a growing number of film and television production companies, as well as graphics -, advertising agencies and the like. At the centre of this influx is The Mills at 66 Carr Street. This landmark, which was sadly ravaged by fire in 2003, is now an attractive red bricked and ironed building, with heavy steel girders in the interior and black metal stairways.
The Mills has six floors, and offers considerable office space. Larger windows have been added, there is a lift and an attractive red roof and down pipes which accentuate the building’s industrial heritage. Spaces are stylish and modern, but still, maintain an industrial theme marrying exposed raw materials with trendy fittings.
