Why Randburg is the ideal central region

When looking to move to a new home, it’s important to consider the neighbouring regions for convenience, comfort, and culture. Some places are perfect on paper, but they’re missing the mark slightly because they might be isolated or lacking in attractive adjacent areas.

Not only is living in Randburg a great central space but living in central Randburg is also convenient to move around the city.

Sandton is a wealth hub

Sandton, just a stone’s throw away from Randburg, is home to Johannesburg Stock Exchange, which is the largest stock market in Africa. One of the largest convention centres on the continent also lives in Sandton. On top of this, the head offices of many corporates and leading companies on the continent are based in Sandton. This not only makes the area one of the wealthiest in Africa, but it also means it’s perfect for job hunters as well as up-and-coming entrepreneurs looking to connect and network.

Soweto is an adventure and cultural hotspot

With deep historic roots, Soweto is a mixing pot of different South African cultures with its own sub-cultures developed in the youth with immense influence from Afro-American culture. The name comes from the syllabic abbreviation for South Western Townships and is a little over a half-hour drive from Randburg.

Soweto also boasts the fourth-largest soccer stadium in the world. The FNB stadium, a site worth visiting, is Africa’s most iconic stadium with the most capacity to seat people. It stands as the stadium to house the final game of the FIFA World Cup in 2010, where Spain lifted the trophy after beating the Netherlands. 

In addition to the culture and the stadium, Soweto also offers a shot of adrenalin. The cooling towers, once built for Orlando Power Station, are the canvas for South Africa’s largest mural as well as the site for the world’s largest power swing between cooling towers. If you’re up to tackle a challenge of height, you have a choice to swing between the two towers to drop down into the tower.
