WELCOME TO THE SANDTON TIMES

This is Sandton, home to Africa’s tallest building ‘The Leonardo’, Africa’s largest stock exchange, the JSE and Sandton City, one of Africa’s leading and most prestigious shopping centres. It is here where some of Africa’s largest companies from investment banks, to healthcare insurers, financial consultancies, major law firms, trade offices, leading media organisations and seasoned professionals have set up their homes alongside one of the biggest convention centres on the continent, the Sandton Convention Centre. With a direct 15-minute Gautrain link to O R Tambo International Airport and the capital Pretoria, 50 years ago, Sandton was the ‘mink and manure’ heartland, in stark contrast to today’s glass clad high-rises that make up the skyline.

Sandton is known as ‘the richest square mile in Africa’ and nestled in a secret undisclosed champagne cellar, accessible only by a secret passage way disguised as a bookcase, in a coffee shop, lies The Sandton Times, founded in 2010. More in the About Us section.

A statue of Nelson Mandela looks over a square in his name, and an array of restaurants, a public library and entertainment, including a theatre, bars and nightclubs, compliment a fine selection of executive apartments and luxury hotels. Sandton, a sought-after address, is the hub of business, pleasure and colourful stories, as often told, right here, on Sandton’s leading blog.
