Exactly where you need to be

Ideally located between Johannesburg and Pretoria, on a 2 200 hectare piece of land triangulated between Kyalami, Midrand and Woodmead, Waterfall City is in the perfect position to cater for the huge demand for offices, shops, restaurants, homes and logistics space caused by the massive growth in the area. Getting in, out and around is quick and easy, with access from three of the busiest highways in the country.


All roads lead to Waterfall City

Travelling to, from and around Waterfall City is a breeze! You can reach it from Pretoria via the N1 and R55, and from Sandton and Johannesburg via the M1, N1 and N3 highways, plus the R55. In terms of public transport, the Midrand Gautrain station is only 4km away with two dedicated Waterfall City Gautrain busses, while there are also single-trip taxis between Waterfall City and greater Tembisa, Midrand, Alexandra, Randburg and Johannesburg CBD. For the high-flyers, the O.R. Tambo, Lanseria and Grand Central airports are all within a 31km radius, with South Africa’s only heliport situated in the Waterfall City Logistics Precinct. And to ensure fuel convenience, there are a number of filling stations on the development.


Connecting efficiency and convenience with quality of life

Waterfall City’s road, water, connectivity, waste management and energy infrastructure have all been future-proofed to accommodate the expansion of the city. More than R1 billion has already been spent on upgrading the ancillary road network to improve access to Waterfall City, while the high quality, well-maintained internal road infrastructure was built based on holistic traffic studies. Erosion due to stormwater is controlled through the building of attenuation dams that form part of the green belt. Waterfall City’s world-class fibre optic network is fully integrated with all other utility infrastructure, while in terms of our energy infrastructure, there are six substations in Waterfall City supplying 180MW of power. And finally, waste disposal is managed as sustainably as possible, with the focus on diverting waste from landfills and creating a circular economy.


Keeping you up to speed

Waterfall City boasts a world-class open-access fibre optic and wireless communication network. There is currently over 700km of installed duct infrastructure on the development and the network is fully redundant, resulting in limited to no downtime. In addition, there are 33 cell masts in Waterfall City, guaranteeing great reception. The GO Waterfall app, developed specifically for those living and working in Waterfall City, has become part of daily life, creating a more tight-knit community. On the work front, we custom-build premises to specific requirements, using cutting-edge architecture to integrate technology with efficient workspaces, resulting in some of the smartest buildings in the country.

Your safety is our priority

Waterfall City’s integrated public security system includes access control at every residential estate, business park, logistics precinct and major retail centres, as well as a surveillance and reaction service supported by a state-of-the-art central management office. Additional measures include 24-hour patrolled security and CCTV cameras throughout Waterfall City and 134 surveillance cameras with number plate and facial recognition abilities. In the CBD, 400 cameras, panic buttons every 200m and street-lighting on back-up power in case of outages, ensure peace of mind for everyone.


A green environment that’s good for you and the planet

Waterfall City has been built according to sustainable principles and practices, ensuring that every development, be it commercial, logistics or residential, is efficient, cost-effective and eco-friendly. Our landscaping focuses on indigenous, water-wise plants, while alternative energy powers our homes. The Waterfall City CBD boasts 31 green-rated buildings to date, with rainwater harvesting and back-up power enabling business continuity during outages. Many retail buildings employ solar panels, the greatest example being the Mall of Africa, which features the world’s largest integrated rooftop Solar PV/diesel hybrid solution, saving up to 8 034 tons of CO2 every year. In Waterfall City, we aim to keep our carbon footprint small, our air pollution low and our energy efficiency high.

Smart City

Improving efficiency, sustainability and quality of life through technology

For most, a Smart City is a place where technology rules and Wi-Fi is free and fast. But peel back a city’s layers of traffic, security, water, power, sustainability, waste management, etc. and you’ll discover that a Smart City is made up of a few other things besides good Wi-Fi. At Waterfall City, we employ our world-class technology infrastructure to enable advanced data processing and system integration, with the goal of making our city management more efficient, our communities happier, our businesses more prosperous and our environment more sustainable.


Encouraging an active lifestyle and offering private healthcare

Waterfall City is the perfect picture of healthy living. Where else would you find a CBD with safe pedestrian walkways, dedicated cycle lanes, a parkrun, large green spaces like the 1,2-hectare Waterfall City Park and a 5km running route? Not to mention 14 gyms and residential estates with over 35km of hiking and biking trails, fishing dams, play parks and even a mountain bike track! And should your health fail you, isn’t it good to know that there’s a state-of-the-art Netcare Waterfall City private hospital and a 24-hour frail care centre on your doorstep?
