Durban’s Lion Match Factory

It’s refreshing to see a property developer upgrading an old heritage building. This was the case when JT Ross redeveloped this old factory which are now upmarket offices and have Jonsson’s Clothing as a key tenant. The factory was built in 1925 for Hunt Leuchers and Hepburn and became the home of the iconic Lion Match brand.
