Rosebank Commercial Property 

Commercial property in Rosebank is highly valued for its location and proximity to different business hubs in the Johannesburg area. The Rosebank area encompasses a swathe of suburbs North of the historic city centre of Johannesburg, starting at Braamfontein and Auckland Park, through to Parktown, Killarney, Houghton, Parkhurst, Parktown North, Parkview, Parkwood, Saxonwold, Rosebank itself, and into Melrose, Dunkeld, Craighall, Illovo, and Hyde Park.
 



Major roads through this area include the M1 highway, Jan Smuts Avenue, Oxford Road which becomes Rivonia Road and on each side, the area is bordered by Beyers Naude and Louis Botha Avenue respectively. Access to these major routes has made offices in Rosebank a popular choice.
 
The two central commuter columns of this area are Jan Smuts Avenue, and the M1 corridor, both of which are flanked on both sides by numerous offices and successful retail centres. Rosebank, itself, is a central location for private clinics and hospitals and further South, just off Oxford Road, is the Johannesburg General Hospital. The world famous Wanderers cricket grounds and associated sports club provide unrivalled facilities for active pursuits including rugby, soccer, golf, tennis and many more. In addition, both Virgin Active and Planet Fitness have flagship gyms in the area as well as smaller branches in nearby areas and, as an added bonus, there are a number of offices to let in Rosebank.
 
The residential suburbs in this area are a mixture of older prestigious full title homes, some of which have now been converted into offices along the major traffic thoroughfares, as well as cluster complexes and blocks of flats catering to young professionals employed either locally, or with easy access to both Joburg’s CBD and the offices of nearby Sandton. Rosebank houses are generally grander offerings with distinct architecture and a wide variety of features.

Offices in many of the suburbs of the Rosebank area are extremely sought after – with rental rates in Phase 2 of the Zone and Melrose Arch as high as R180 – R200 per square meter. However, there are still highly competitive rates as low as R50 – R75 per square meter to be had for B-grade premises with excellent access to the M1 highway and other major transport nodes within Parktown and Braamfontein. Tenants favour the Rosebank area for its central location within easy reach of clients and customers ranging from the CBD to Sandton and Bryanston. In addition, the development of the Rosebank Gautrain station offers employees significant potential transport cost savings when commuting time, vehicle wear-and-tear and possible future road tolls are taken into account and this, in turn, gives even greater value to commercial property in Rosebank.
