Visionary Path of Currie Group

Currie Group tells its own story, stemming from Richard H. Currie in the last half of the 18th century as an inventive individual who was forward-thinking enough to play a key role in the embryonic stages of Johannesburg's property market. One of his innovative auctioning techniques, “between the chains”, which was not far from Rand Club on Loveday Street became a signature of the burgeoning real estate scene in Johannesburg. This did not just involve selling properties; it created opportunities and laid a foundation for a thriving city. With the Currie Group being formed formally in 1887, Richard Currie’s dream began to take shape. The founding principles were integrity, innovation, and unyielding pursuit for success that are still acted upon even today. These principles were not imponderable ideas but directives that guided successive generations bringing about the unequalled commercial and industrial property status accorded to the Currie family name. 

A Century-Long Journey: Evolving with Johannesburg Currie developed its presence across various commercial and industrial sectors while Johannesburg transformed the gold rush camp into a metropolis. The Currie Group was the foundation of some of Johannesburg’s most iconic commercial properties. The Currie Group has left an indelible mark on the city’s landscape from office skyscrapers for thriving businesses to expansive industrial parks meant for manufacturing and logistics behemoths. Even before they became industry standards, the Currie group embraced new building technologies as well as sustainable practices due to their commitment to innovation. This way, not only did this forward-looking approach improve the functionality and aesthetic appeal of their properties but it also demonstrated the company’s devotion to environmental stewardship and sustainable development.
