Fourways

Starting off in 1920 as a 65-acre farm called Norscot, Fourways has developed into a huge municipality and stretches from the concrete highway in the West to Riversands in a Northerly direction. The original Cape Dutch farmhouse was bought by the municipality and still exists as a recreational facility for the residents. The farm was sold off in pieces and over time other farms and land were added to the suburb and it was called Fourways, after the four way stop where William Nicol Drive met Witkoppen road. Today it consists of 8 suburbs: Fourways, Lonehill, Broadacres, Norscot, Norscot Slopes, Craigavon, Beverley and Magaliessig. Mainly a residential area, offices have slowly been developed from the 1990’s. There is no specific office node as the office space has been developed close to the larger retail facilities. Fourways Golf Park owned by Bridgeport and developed by RPP was a ground breaker in its time. The office buildings with large patios, were developed around a 9-hole mashie golf course. Waterford Office Park and Fourways Office park followed. The most recent office park developments are, Infinity Business Park and Monte Circle which offer roof top gardens. Monte Casino, developed by The American company, Creative Kingdom Inc is owned by Tsogo Sun. Completed at a cost of R1.6 billion, it is primarily an entertainment centre with high-end hotels and smaller office space which can be found at The Pivot. The theme is Tuscan Villa with a night sky during the day and a daytime sky at night. The Casino is the main attraction. At 178,000m², Fourways Mall is the largest shopping centre in South Africa. Starting off as an 85,000m² shopping centre, and it was redeveloped and re-opened in November 2019. The jewel of Fourways must be Steyn City. The 2000-acre site being developed by Dow Steyn and Guiseppi Plumari. The initial development on the site was a 32 000m² office block for Auto and General. Then followed the Lifestyle development encompassing residential, retail, education, entertainment, sports facilities, and parks. The Developers have been instrumental in making use of the local communities and so providing much needed jobs. Following the success of the uptake at Steyn City, the developers then created an office park within Steyn City, and the first tenant who moved in was HIPPO. They are currently building the second phase consisting of a building of 4500m². The total office park will consist of approximately 80 000m².
