Development potential exceeds 34 000 m² of retail, commercial and light industrial space.

The Old Tannery will be transformed into a creative hub

The Old Tannery is a substantial 67 000 m² property situated on the edge of Wellington, alongside the Krom River. The development of the Old Tannery began in earnest in 2021 and the property currently houses an eclectic mix of tenants – from the fascinating Classic Car Café to small businesses selling a variety of local products and services, including gin, books, craft beer and organic food. An e-bike rental outlet operates tours to Wellington and its surroundings.

The Old Tannery attracts tourists, shoppers, diners and families looking for a safe and tranquil destination, as well as creative people who thrive in the fresh air and small town welcome that is uniquely Wellington.

The Old Tannery offers

Upmarket office space

The Old Tannery offers a wide selection of upmarket office accommodation in a secure, friendly environment. Tenants work in newly constructed, light and modern offices, while appreciating the tranquillity and long history of the Old Tannery complex. The Old Tannery features fibre internet, ample parking, immaculate public facilities and a range of venues in which to conduct meetings or entertain visitors.

Destination of choice for day travellers from Cape Town

While foodies shop for local, organic specialities or sample the brews at the Garigista Beer Company, petrol heads can marvel at the matchless collection of vintage cars housed at the Classic Car Café. Wide-open spaces and a play area for children make the Old Tannery a destination of choice for locals, tourists and day-trippers alike.


The Old Tannery is working with the Wellington Tourism Office, local wine estates and businesses in the area to offer tours from the Old Tannery to local farms, either on buses or horse-drawn carts that recreate a time when the Old Tannery was at its zenith – a centre of industry and creative energy in Wellington.
