The City of Johannesburg Property Company has initiated the process of the development of the remainder of Erf 575 Sandown guided by this framework in order to unlock the massive development opportunity created by the Gautrain. The site is bordered by West Street, Fifth Street, Rivonia Road, and Nelson Mandela Square and the development incorporates the Sandton Gautrain Rapid Rail Station. This project is guided by the Urban development framework for Sandton and has incorporated findings based on Space Syntax.
