oval of shops and restaurants surrounding a lake in a natural
depression in President Ridge in Randburg fed by the Jukskei River.

Commons, is designed around the concept of an urban shopping space

The centre now boasts rolling lawns with leisurely walking paths
cutting across, a Commons with a performance stage set to the

The Brightwater Commons has been designed for a sense of wellbeing
creating an enabling framework for spontaneous social interaction.
The visitor is encircled by trees and breezes, water and sunlight.
