Here’s a list of top places to live depending on your different lifestyle needs and preferences.
Johannesburg (also known as Jozi) is a buzzing city with opportunities almost everywhere. Living here is wonderful; however, you need to pick convenient accommodation in order to enjoy the full experience. In this article, Johannesburg Housing Community will give you a list of top suburbs in Johannesburg to live in depending on your different lifestyle needs and preferences. Let’s explore Jozi, shall we?
Young Professionals And Students
As a student or young professional, it is important to live in a central area where you’ll easily access varsity or work. A lot of students and young professionals enjoy living in Braamfontein and Newtown. That’s because even if their workplaces or varsities are far, there is transport very close by. At Braamfontein and Newtown, you are spoiled with Park Station and Bree Taxi Rank. Both offer convenient transport options in the form of taxis or buses. There is also easy access to e-hailing services. Newtown Junction Mall will be your best bet for groceries and essentials, as well as fashion and homeware supplies. There are also a lot of stores on Bree Street (now called Lillian Ngoyi Street) that offer everything from food to fashion to homeware and furniture. You can also indulge in some art and culture with Newtown and Braamfontein’s walls filled with artwork, the streets decked with galleries and market spaces, plus a theatre in the heart of Newtown. You can also get affordable Newtown accommodation with Johannesburg Housing Company by your side.
Families Can Jozi Too
Most people worry about raising families in the heart of Johannesburg due to the rush, busyness and noise. Fear not; there are areas that are family-friendly and create safe spaces for you and your family to enjoy while still getting the convenience of city living. Take Jeppestown, for example, which is filled with flats, but most people in these areas are families, and the traffic is manageable as there are peak times and such. Jeppestown is not too far from Maboneng, which is pretty busy, but it is not close enough to hear most of the noise. You can spoil your family for day outings in the heart of Maboneng and take a walk home to Jeppestown for some quiet.
Artists, Creatives and Entrepreneurs
Johannesburg is almost like a huge gallery that houses different types of creatives and artists, and Marshalltown is one of the areas dominated by them. This is because it also offers serenity, spacious flats and peace of mind for those who want to create with ease. Marshalltown is also a great area for business owners as there is lots of support and opportunities to better your business. It is encircled by banks, cafes, and local shops, the landmark plaza Gandhi Square which has a centrepiece statue of Mahatma Gandhi, plus the Mining District, which is an open-air street museum with sculptures chronicling South Africa’s mining history. Looking to rent Marshalltown flats? You guessed it; we have them. Take advantage of this central and artsy hub today.
