Rosebank at a glance

Today Rosebank is synonymous with office buildings, hotels, shopping centres and apartment blocks, so it’s hard to believe it started out as farm land.

Construction in the area began in earnest during the late 1940s and by the 1950s, Rosebank was considered to be one of the leading retail nodes of Johannesburg. The area had increased in size and hotels, shopping centres, schools, homes and other commercial buildings were developed.

It was Rosebank’s location close to both the Johannesburg CBD and Sandton that added to appeal.

For many years the area was considered mostly commercial with a few residential flats available - however over the last couple of years the area has seen a boom in residential developments that continue to attract those wanting to live close to their places of work.

Rosebank is one of a kind in that it has effectively combined a successful commercial node within a pleasant working, shopping and entertainment environment. Due to its compact size, visitors, residents and workers are able to walk the area, enjoying the outdoors atmosphere, en route to their destination.

Although Rosebank is home to many head offices, the district also provides an abundance of entertainment to its residents and visitors at a variety of superb shopping malls, pavement cafes, world class restaurants, markets, luxurious hotels, cinemas, art galleries as well as night clubs.

Rosebank boasts spectacular art deco architecture with beautifully designed facades and buildings. This precinct is a vibrant and cosmopolitan location to live, work and play!
