The suburb of Marlboro includes the area of Marlboro Gardens. The two areas are part of the whole region, divided into a residential and Industrial area. Marlboro Gardens being the area that consists of houses for sale and the rest of Marlboro mainly has Industrial properties for sale. This section is also known as the Industrial Township area.
The Industrial region has now been approved and re-zoned to include mixed-land properties. This means that besides commercial properties, the land can now also be used for residential purposes. The reason being, that many of the owners of the Industrial businesses have moved elsewhere, leaving the area open to neglect.
There are few main roads that run past and through the suburb, allowing for easy access to surrounding areas. The Old Pretoria Road runs the length of the suburb to eventually join with the M1, in the northern section of Marlboro. Located in the same vicinity is Marlboro Drive, which links to the N3 Eastern Bypass.
There are still a number of Industrial businesses in Marlboro, which also includes a church, the Sandton Licensing and testing department as well as the Sandton SPCA. The Marlboro Gardens area has a Seconday School located close to the Marlboro Community Centre. Adjacent to the community centre is the Marlboro Sports Grounds, a popular place for those who wish to play a friendly game of soccer or cricket. The area also has a Hindu Temple and a Muslim Mosque, both located close to the community centre in Marlboro.
