Africa’s richest square mile

The GEZE Mile, Sandton Central, South Africa

The ever-expanding scale of development in world-class city Sandton Central accounts for almost 40%* of national office development and boasts the highest concentration of Green Star rated buildings. With commercial development having started in the 1980s, across what is now Africa’s richest square mile, named as such because this area is home to some of the most prestigious business buildings on the African continent.

GEZE’s exquisite award-winning Architectural Ironmongery enjoys a deeply rooted presence here, which is why the GEZE Team wryly refers to this area the ‘The GEZE Mile’.
