Sandton, an affluent area in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, is known as “the richest square mile in Africa”. It is the most opulent area in South Africa, and apart from the magnificent palatial mansions, Sandton is the most important economic and financial centre of the country.
Originally, in a more leisurely age, Sandton was Sandown, a beautiful peaceful suburb about 10kms out of central Johannesburg, with glorious gardens, trees and streams. Development in the 1980’s began transformation of the suburb into the main business and commercial area of South Africa.
Once Sandton City shopping centre was built, it was followed by high rise 5 star hotels, restaurants, shops and cinemas. New redevelopment plans for Sandton City include what will be the highest building in Africa, of 60 stories.
The best office parks in Gauteng are in Sandton, with investment banks, financial consultants, and even the Johannesburg Stock Exchange having their headquarters there.
