Why Waterfall

Waterfall is a signature mixed-use development located in Gauteng, South Africa’s commercial centre. It features everything you would expect in a vibrant, modern destination. It embraces urban living to the fullest with offices, residential, retail, a logistics hub, schools, hotels, a hospital, parks, restaurants, entertainment and more.

The node is setting new standards in real estate. Committed to six key value drivers – locality, amenities, infrastructure, safety, sustainability and vitality – Waterfall is a place created for people and their work/life requirements, today and well into the future. Meticulously planned as a multi-purpose destination, the precinct is the epitome of peak functionality, access and visibility and is proving a popular consolidation destination. Waterfall is increasingly becoming the hub of consulting and professional firms in Gauteng, perfectly positioned between the metropolises of Johannesburg and Pretoria
