Johannesburg at a glance

Johannesburg is known by various names just as diverse as the residents - Jozi, Jo’burg, Joeys, eGoli.

From its humble beginning as a mining town, Johannesburg has evolved into a buzzing urban hub of activity. From high rises dotting the skyline to leafy suburbs with sprawling properties, the city reflects the history of its growth and major events in Southern African history.

Throughout the history of the city, one thing has remained true, it is still seen as the city in which dreams can come true with hard work. The city centre resonates the buzz of daily workers sealing business deals and creating wealth, from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange to any one of the large international company headquarters - the electricity surges through the city.

You would be fooled to think that here residents are all work and play. When the sun sets the city comes alive with another kind of energy. Fine dining restaurants, art galleries, music venues and world-renowned theatres keep the city going.

Not everything in Johannesburg is sleek and modern, the city is littered with buildings reflecting the old grand dame it once was. This can not only be seen in the commercial buildings, but also in the beautiful homes in the older suburbs. Homes which once housed some of the most influential people in South African history.

In recent years the city has undergone many renewal projects and the latest has seen the once forgotten area of Braamfontein undergoing a facelift. This renewal has seen many young professionals flock to the area, pumping it full of creative energy.

The influx of young professionals doesn’t mean that Johannesburg isn’t a place to start a family though. The city boasts some of the most prestigious schools and universities in the country and many of these institutions have produced the leaders of both yesteryear and the future.

On the sporting front, the city not only offers some of the best stadiums but also some of the most esteemed golf courses, tennis clubs and, bowling greens. It truly has everything that your sporting heart might desire.

For those more inclined towards fashion and shopping, nothing beats the plethora on offer here. From small local designer shops to international fashion brands that you can find nowhere else, it is all here.

If having the world at your fingertips sounds like home, then the Place of Gold is where you will find your dream home.
