The vision for the future of Sandton Central and the city of Joburg is here. With the recent approval of Johannesburg’s Spatial Development Framework 2040, the Department of Development Planning and Urban Management began reviewing the boundaries and controls of the urban areas within the city. They have assessed each key node with the aim of guiding and encouraging good urban growth and development.
The city has published its draft nodal review, which outlines its new development zone approach. The document also indicates the development guidelines for each of the city’s development zones.
The review is now open for its second round of public comment. “This is something that everyone should be interested in and participate in. It lays the foundation for future of our city and decides what development will take place in the different areas of the city for the next two decades and beyond,” says Elaine Jack, City Improvement District Manager of Sandton Central Management District (SCMD).
Sandton Central is the commercial centre of South Africa and is home to three business improvement districts. It provides distinct advantages for its property investors, residents, businesses, tourists, employers and employees by creating and sustaining a well-managed and enjoyable environment. The many cranes on is skyline right now illustrate its success story.
Being actively involved in the direction of the area’s future development, such as participation in the draft nodal review process, is one way Sandton Central reinforces its position as South Africa’s cosmopolitan financial capital.
