Before you can settle your business in any specific area, it’s best to consider whether or not that area will be good for your business and its bottom line or not. Sandton is one city in the Gauteng province that stands out as a great place for both businesses and private residents. Sandton has been am affluent area since its establishment in the early 1930s. At first, the area was intended to be dedicated to farms and equestrian estates, but from the 1970s, the area started to develop in terms of commercial properties until it became what it is today – a buzzing city jam-packed with commercial property to let and for sale, and let’s not forget, a myriad of thriving businesses. In the year 2000, Sandton was fondly nicknamed SA’s capital of wealth and style.
One of the things that’s great about Sandton for any business, is its focus on community and safety. In fact, Sandton central has 24-hour public safety ambassadors ensuring safety, and an information kiosk for anyone looking for assistance.
Sandton is made up of a number of wealthy, affluent suburbs, including the likes of Sandown, Parkmore, Benmore Gardens, Wierda Valley, Sandhurst, Inanda, Chislehurston and Atholl. Five star hotels and upmarket corporate buildings are a familiar sight to Sandton residents. For the fashionistas, Sandton offers many shopping opportunities at the Michelangelo Towers Mall, Village Walk Shopping Centre and Nelson Mandela Square. Any business lucky enough to be in close proximity to these shopping malls and busy hubs of activity will certainly enjoy the traffic and exposure.
