Getting To Know The City: Cosmo City
In this article, we will take a look at what to expect when considering a home in Cosmo City.
From its dawn, Cosmo City was classified as a beacon of Urbanisation in the city of Johannesburg. Since then, the city has become one of Johannesburg’s favourite suburbs and has more to offer. In this article, we will take a look at what to expect when considering a home in Cosmo City, what you can get out of living here, and some JHC flats you will probably love living in.
Essentials and Groceries? Sorted.
If you are wondering whether you will be able to adjust to Cosmo City or not based on your lifestyle, you shouldn’t worry. Cosmo Mall, for example, offers a range of stores from clothing to groceries to pharmacists for whatever you may need. There are other shopping centres as well as businesses that offer different products and services in the heart of Cosmo’s ‘city centre’. Whether you will be living alone or with family, you’ll be able to shop essentials and groceries without having to go to another suburb.
Cosmo City Takes Education Serious
Cosmo City was built by the government to provide some of the residents in Johannesburg and surroundings with decent homes and lives. In that process, the government also recognised the need for schools, especially if families were going to move there. So far, Cosmo City has about 8 schools, with the government promising to build more. However, if you want, you can look at surrounding and nearby areas for schools if none of the Cosmo City ones meet your needs. There is access to transport in Cosmo City, so your kid(s) won’t struggle.
Speaking of Transport
If you’ve been asking yourself how far is Cosmo City from town, maybe because you need to commute there daily for work, school or business, then don’t stress. It is about half an hour from Johannesburg CBD with lots of transport options to choose from. From taxis to e-hailing, getting to and from Cosmo City is usually very cut and dry. If you are driving, even better, because you will be able to get around without any hesitation. There is, however, pretty accessible public transport in Cosmo City, with ranks and stations carefully located to give you convenience. From a bus, taxi, or e-hailing, you are guaranteed to go from A to Z with ease.
Fun For The Whole Fam
Because Cosmo City is located so close to Honeydew and Roodepoort, you are spoiled with lots of activities and fun for the whole family when living here. If you are looking for some fun in the sun with the family or loved ones, consider Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, which offers beautiful greenery and flowers to feast your eyes, and some nice scenic picnic spots for when you want to relax and take in the nature. There is also Honeydew Mazes which is a fun activity that can be done as a group or individual. Here you get to engage in an adventure through their mazes, puzzles, and games that will leave the little and big ones wanting to come there weekly.
There are a couple of art galleries and markets situated not so far from Cosmo City, and if you frequent the Johannesburg CBD side of things, you are not too far off living in Cosmo City and can still attend the vibrant Jozi parties and events.
