HIS region brings together a good blend of older established suburbs, spanning koppies, open spaces and tree-lined avenues, with the hustle and bustle of Randburg and Rosebank and their surrounding residential areas.
Randburg is in the midst of change, as the City rolls out its plans to revitalise the central business district and bring back business lost to regional shopping centres and other decentralised nodes.
A vital component in that plan is the establishment of the Randburg Management District and the overhaul of the council-owned civic centre.
Upmarket suburbs such as Hyde Park, Sandhurst and Dunkeld are to the east of the region, all well served by the trendy local hub of Rosebank. Northcliff and Westcliff provide residents with spectacular natural scenery and views, and are home to several parks.
Melville, Auckland Park and Mayfair are in the south. The region's suburbs range from high to low income and many, including Parktown and Mayfair, have a strong historical background.
