about

The Franklin is one of the most unique city apartment buildings in Johannesburg, offering some of the largest modern luxury residential apartments for sale or rent.

Based in the heart of the city’s financial district and originally built in the nineties, this landmark building which borders Newtown once served as the former Head Offices of accounting giant Ernst & Young in South Africa.

The fabric of The Franklin is classy, contemporary and charming. The design of the apartments at The Franklin recognises this, integrating with the essence of urban city living and the privacy of an exclusive neighbourhood. Perfectly incorporating the spirit and timelessness of some of the greatest American buildings ever constructed, The Franklin is generous in design and robust in style, with a bold mix of modern style and décor, and the fresh ideas of award-winning, world-renowned architects, Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects.

Over the years, the diverse buyer profile of The Franklin is what has earned it the reputation of being one of the most exclusive, upmarket apartment buildings in Joburg, with residents including international celebrities and prominent business figures.

With a limited number of luxury apartments and penthouses, The Franklin offers investors and tenants the ultimate in exclusivity, security and comfort. In a world where only the best will do, The Franklin does it better – elevating inner city living to a whole new level of elegance.
