Randburg Property and General Area Information
Where is Randburg?
Randburg is a city situated in the North Western portion of greater Johannesburg.
Randburg residents are generally seen as affluent and enjoy peace and quiet, convenient access to all major roads including the likes of Malibongwe drive, Beyers Naude Drive, Jan Smuts and the N1 Highway leading to Pretoria and beyond.
This modern city is made up by over 32 leafy Suburbs, mostly residential and all inter-blended with cultural diversity and beautiful architectural design.
Subsequent to plans being drafted to develop a Randburg CBD (central business district) in the early 1960's, the retail activity comprised a shopping strip along Jan Smuts Ave and Hendrik Verwoerd Drive, which resulted in the astonishing growth that crafted the infrastructure for Randburg's strong business orientated Urban design.
In 2004, Johannesburg approved plans to declare the Randburg CBD a city improvement district (CID). By 2005 the City of Johannesburg assisted in revitalizing Randburg's beauty with the financial injection of R5-million for development. The transformation since can be noticed by the incredibly vibrant mixture of commercial development and suburban lifestyle in Randburg. Randburg forms part of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality together with Sandton and Roodepoort.
Randburg is an upmarket area known for its many family friendly eating, shopping and entertainment facilities and park like areas. Here one will witness large lavish homes and an abundance of boutiques. In fact, Randburg is well known for its selection of shopping centres, entertainment areas and facilities, including well known and popular malls such as Brightwater Commons, the sprawling Cresta Centre, accessible NorthGate and a number of other smaller suburban centres. Whilst it was for many years known as the “Randburg Waterfront”, a new and improved Brightwater Commons has emerged – a facility which has become a firm family favourite.
Randburg is a “warm” place filled with families, friendly folk and superb facilities and road access – it’s a place where there’s something for everyone.
Due to Randburg's centralised location amidst the Metropolis of Johannesburg, this city has essentially become a hotspot for wealthy citizens desiring property for sale in a safe community – that is also situated in close proximity to high class amenities.
