Longmeadow, Johannesburg


Longmeadow at a glance

The Longmeadow, Long-Lake, and Meadowview industrial areas in Johannesburg are three key industrial zones that have contributed significantly to the city's economic growth over the past 35 years. These three areas strategically link up very well to Johannesburg’s East Rand via the N3 to the N12, R24 and R21, Johannesburg South via the N3 and to Midrand and Pretoria along the N3 and R21. For this reason, many big corporations have settled their logistics and distribution centres here.

Longmeadow is a well-established industrial precinct in Johannesburg, situated in the eastern part of the city. Longmeadow was developed in the 1990s as an expansion onto Linbro Park. The area has since evolved into a thriving industrial hub. Longmeadow is known for its modern industrial facilities and warehouses, making it an attractive location for businesses across various sectors, including logistics, manufacturing, and distribution. The industrial park's success can be attributed to its strategic location with easy access to major arterial roads and highways, such as the N3 and N1, allowing for efficient transportation of goods and accessibility for employees and clients.

Major tenants and owner occupiers in Longmeadow include Dischem (ex-Pick ‘n Pay distribution centre), Crown Food Group, Rhenus Logistics, Khuene & Nagel, ACDC Dynamics, Nestle and CourierIT. Longmeadow caters for the larger standalone facilities ranging from 5,000m² to 65,000m². All entrances and exit points into Longmeadow are access controlled and the area has a strong security presence.

Long-Lake is another prominent industrial area located in Johannesburg's east. It has gained recognition as a preferred location for various businesses due to its accessibility and excellent infrastructure. The history of Long-Lake is closely tied to the growth and development of Johannesburg's industrial sector over the past few decades. The industrial area offers modern office spaces, manufacturing facilities, and distribution centres. It enjoys proximity to the N3 highway and O.R. Tambo International Airport, making it an ideal choice for businesses focused on national and international trade.

Major tenants and owner occupiers in Longmeadow include Zestweg, Cargo Carriers and BBraun Medical. Fortress Real Estate Investments owns the Long-Lake Logistics Park which includes a new development opportunity of 40,000m². Other major landlords in Long-Lake include Improvon and Zenprop.

Meadowview, like its neighbouring industrial zones, is also located in the eastern part of Johannesburg. This area has seen a significant transformation from agricultural land to a thriving industrial centre. Its strategic location, adjacent to major transport routes, particularly the N3 highway, has made it a prime choice for businesses looking to set up operations in Johannesburg. Meadowview offers a mix of warehouses and office spaces, catering to various industrial needs. The availability of industrial parks like Meadowview has contributed to the economic development of Johannesburg's eastern corridor.

Major tenants and owner occupiers in Meadowview include Altron, Rohlig Grindrod, DSV Healthcare, Triton Express, Motus Afterparts, Geberit and Ricoh. The Equites Property Fund is the major landlord in Meadowview and continues to invest in this industrial node with new development opportunities available.

In summary, Longmeadow, Long-Lake, and Meadowview are three industrial areas in Johannesburg that have evolved over the years to become essential components of the city's economic landscape. Their histories are closely tied to the industrial expansion of Johannesburg, and they have become preferred locations for businesses due to their strategic positioning with easy access to major arterials, facilitating the efficient movement of goods and ensuring a thriving business ecosystem. These industrial areas continue to play a vital role in Johannesburg's economic development and growth.
