Live Easy’s Doornfontein Nano-Units is a brilliant example of urban renewal taking place in cities across the globe. We understand the need for affordable apartments; therefore, we have revitalised tired buildings like the one in Doornfontein, one of Jozi’s oldest and most loved suburbs that boasts beautiful trees and leaf-lined roads, to bring a whole new way of living to those that want to climb the ladder of success.

Our easy-living options offer a brand, spanking new home (Nano-Units), complete with modern kitchens, laundry (no need to buy that expensive washing machine), plenty of cupboard space, Wi-Fi, DSTV Plug & Play, and a canteen for the times you simply cannot or don’t want to cook.

Doornfontein is one of the suburbs that has gone from a no-go area to a hip, vibey urban community.

This is what you can expect from moving in and moving up in your smart Nano-Unit in Doornfontein:

Shopping and Fun stuff to do in Doornfontein

Doornfontein is a stone’s throw from the hip, vibrant urban community of the Maboneng Precinct which is most certainly one of Jozi’s coolest spots where modern urban apartments and roof-top hangouts are sought after by creatives, entrepreneurs and young up-and-coming professionals.

There are art galleries, collaborative workspaces, cinemas and an eclectic mix of people on the street; a spot where you can enjoy the trendy restaurants and coffee bars.

The Neighbourgoods Market is a “must-see”, too; here the pavements are clean and well-maintained.

Doornfontein is steeped in history and is home to one of Jozi’s oldest synagogues (1921), and one of the world’s famous stadiums – the Ellis Park stadium.

The Civic Theatre in Braamfontein, now the Joburg theatre, showcases world-class productions including ballet, live shows and more. Culture vultures will not be disappointed.

There is something for everyone to enjoy whether you love the theatre, the rugby or would like to swim like an Olympic Gold Medallist at the Ellis Park Swimming Pool, you will not be short of stuff to do.
