Johannesburg North – South Africa

Johannesburg North

Johannesburg North is a Johannesburg suburb in South Africa. It’s in the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality’s Region C. The Witkoppen Road divides it in half, and it is located halfway between Fourways Mall/Monte Casino and Northgate Shopping Centre on Randburg’s northern outskirts.

Johannesburg North, which has recently become a business powerhouse, is perhaps one of the city’s most central districts. Sandton, Fourways, Rosebank, and Kyalami are some of the most popular places in the North. Houses in Johannesburg North create an enviable balance between modern living and classic suburbia.

Places like Rosebank, Melville, and Linden, which are steeped in history, are dotted with historic houses that exude plenty of character and rich heritage, while surrounding areas like Bryanston and Sandton boast contemporary architecture and flair.

History Of Johannesburg North

The suburb was largely developed as White-Only subsidy housing for new families during apartheid, but since the end of apartheid and the establishment of true democracy, the area has seen a peaceful multi-cultural inflow of new residents. The southern side is being encroached upon by cluster housing construction, although the majority of the houses in this region are freestanding, middle-income family residences with an average yard size of 1000 metres and single-story homes.

Sandton City is a shopper’s paradise with over 300 businesses. Spend an evening at the Montecasino, which is inspired by a Tuscan villa and features spectacular theatres, a world-class casino, and fine dining.


The Baron Restaurant is a big magnet for the northern side. New projects have sprung up along the Witkoppen Road banks, including an organic lawn nursery, a huge tree nursery, and a ceramic pot shop, ‘The Village Green’ lifestyle Emporium, on the southern side, and a recently opened car dealership and a small pub on the northern side. The Riverwalk Shopping Center, which once housed a grocery, currently only houses a security firm, a church, and a supplier of swimming pool nets.

The most convenient retail malls for most inhabitants are in Jukskei Park and Olivedale; otherwise, they must travel the 5 minutes to one of the two neighbouring huge mall zones.
