Johannesburg is one of the largest cities in South Africa and the capital of the Gauteng province. It is also the seat of South Africa’s Constitutional Court.
Johannesburg is often described as Africa’s economic powerhouse. It has more than one central business district including Sandton, Rosebank and Rosebank in addition to the original CBD. Johannesburg is the hub of South Africa’s commercial, financial, industrial, and mining undertakings. Johannesburg’s suburbs are the product of urban sprawl and are regionalized into north, south, east and west, and they generally have different personalities. Greater Johannesburg, consists of more than five hundred suburbs in an area covering more than two hundred square miles. The suburbs to the west of Johannesburg have in recent years floundered with the decline of the mining industry, but have in some cases experienced some revival. The biggest sprawl lies to the east and north of Johannesburg. The eastern suburbs are relatively prosperous and close to various industrial zones. The northern suburbs have been the recipient of most of the flight from the inner city with the city starting to sprawl northwards and multiple secondary CBDs forming in the north towards Pretoria. Traditionally the northern and northwestern suburbs have the centre for the wealthy in Johannesburg. These suburbs contain high-end retail shops and upper-class residential area such as Hyde Park, Houghton, Sandhurst, Bryanston, Hurlingham and Northcliff.
