1 Fox Precinct was part one of the first mining camps that sprung up at the time of the discovery of gold in the 1880s. The area became the centre of the administration, maintenance and storage of trams and buses during the rapid growth of Johannesburg’s transport sector in the first half of the 20th century. Today, this precinct has been transformed into a dynamic cultural hub.
The area began to grow between 1906 and 1907, when sheds for the housing and servicing of the first electric trams were built. The three power stations were built here to meet the electricity needs of a modern transport system and the rapidly growing city. The M1 freeway constructed between the 1960s and 80s can be seen above the bustle of 1 Fox. Today it houses a number of dynamic businesses: Good Luck Bar & Restaurant, Fox Junction Event Venue, Mad Giant Craft Brewery and the Food Market Shed. Click through to each one to find out more.
