On the urban edge of Sandton, connecting Fourways to Lanseria, Broadacres and Midrand, lay 2000 acres of undeveloped land and an unused quarry. A piece of land so vast that it stretched across a number of townships, while traversing urban boundaries and agricultural holdings. The initial land parcel acquired by successful property developer Giuseppe Plumari and earmarked for industrial development, prompted well known South African businessman Douw Steyn to acquire the remaining tracts that make up the site today, to fulfil the vision of building a city like no other. So, what started as a concept to add industrial erven to this unused land along the Jukskei River, evolved into what is now known as Steyn City. Together they imagined something that up until this point did not exist anywhere on the African continent - a parkland residence founded on the principle of community, and the quality of life. An ideal lost in today's urban living. On offer will be an unique village lifestyle, centred on quieter and simpler times not yet seen in Johannesburg's fast=paced and high-pressure environment.
Residents will have permanent access to the tranquillity of a home that forms part of a wider community, where security, freedom and functionality form the cornerstones of this visionary parkland residence. Picture houses set among hundreds of thousands of indigenous tree tops, pedestrian-friendly and landscaped green belts and parks, and every conceivable urban amenity within reach. Steyn City will transform how Johannesburg residents view city life. "Today cities appear to be built to cater to the motor vehicle, but Steyn City will be built and designed for people. One of the biggest barriers to our lifestyles of old, where children grew up playing on suburban streets, is the motor vehicle. Steyn City's network of pedestrianised pathways and cycle tracks will thread their way through Steyn City, linking all residential dwellings with the numerous parks and dense woodland." highlights Plumari.Don't forget to visit our gallery
