Jonathan Liebmann is an entrepreneur and founder of Propertuity. Propertuity is the development company behind the Maboneng Precinct and the Rivertown Precinct in Durban. Focused on developing mixed-use buildings that offer progressive, distinctive urban spaces for residents and businesses. Propertuity has contributed substantially to regeneration efforts around Johannesburg and Durban’s inner city .
Liebmann studied business and accounting at Monash University between 2002 and 2004. But the bulk of his education comes from hands-on experience and entrepreneurship.
He has been in business since I was 15 years old and was involved in running night clubs, a mobile coffee shop and a number of laundries in the Joburg inner city. He started 5 businesses by the time he was 24. The 5th is Propertuity, which has been the most successful one.
Liebmann founded Propertuity in 2007, the business vehicle with which he launched the property investments that became the Maboneng Precinct.
He has since amassed an impressive portfolio of properties in the old, run-down section of the Joburg inner city. Part of his success has been to transform mind-sets about the area once known for its crime and dereliction.
Propertuity owns 60 buildings so far in Johannesburg and is now on the same aggressive growth path in Durban.
Jonathan was awarded the 30 Under 30: Africa's Best Young Entrepreneur in 2013
