What Commercial Areas are Trending in South Africa?
Category Market Trends and Industry News
Whether you are looking to start up a new business or expand your existing one, location is key. The areas in South Africa that are trending at the moment, and vying for attention on the office space front, span across three geographically popular areas:
Rosebank looks to be proving a worthy destination for the millennials, showing us that the up and coming youth are loving this trendy spot. Hopping onto the convenient Gautrain sees you shooting across town to a quick meeting, and back in time for lunch. The vast array of shopping malls and offices give the area a vibrant and diverse feel. Whether you are looking to buy a high-rise office, rent a small office in the suburbs, or that hot-desk in a communal office situation in the city centre, Rosebank can offer you all of this and more.
With the beach just moments away, you are able to combine your business life and social calendar very elegantly in Umhlanga, Durban. Umhlanga is home to the second tallest skyscraper in South Africa, Pearl Sky, which homes many affluent residents whom you can be sure are not far from their business addresses. It is said that Umhlanga is on its way to becoming the essential economic hub of Durban. So move over Sandton, Umhlanga is looking to take over!
Menlyn too is slowly becoming the “Sandton” of Pretoria - a hive of activity ranging from home-makers to business folk. Centrally situated just off the N1 highway, one can reach Menlyn with very little effort. As the Gautrain branches through this area, you can make swift work of that trip to a client, and settle back at your office before the day is done. In the past Menlyn did not feature on the top of most young couples list of places to indulge. It was a “work and go home” destination - home generally not being in Menlyn. But since the office and nightlife has boomed, Menlyn is slowly picking up steam in trendy pastimes. The marriage of posh office space, swanky residential apartments, and luxurious shopping malls is turning Menlyn into one of the currently most sought after commercial areas.
