Growth

A major advantage for investors in Centurion is the steady growth shown by the area.

During 2000 the population grew by 12,8 per cent, mainly due to the growth in new apartment buildings and homes (7,2%) that occurred in the year. It also probably led to the growth in retail and industrial development, viz 0,4% and 19,7% respectively. Office and commercial development also grew positively during the past few years.

The year 2000's growth was preceded by steady growth during the previous number of years after a high growth rate, particularly in industrial development and the number of homes built during 1995 and 1996.

Location

Centurion's economic basis is modern and aimed at the future. It offers many opportunities for growth and extension for the investor and developer. One of these is its strategic position in the economic heartland of Gauteng. It forms part of the centrally situated and technologically advanced development corridor between Pretoria and Johannesburg.

A further advantage is die high quality of its residential and social infrastructure. It is situated within a rural region that offers a high quality, pleasant and liveable environment. Because the area is relatively undeveloped, it has space for future development without replacing existing developments, as it is sometimes necessary in established environments.

People

Due to its situation near Pretoria and Johannesburg, the area attracts highly qualified and skilled professionals: 64% of the city's inhabitants are in management or professional positions. This means that the Pretoria-Johannesburg corridor has a high skills base, which is very important, especially in the information technology industry.

The region is already driven by investments from the private sector and is managed by a well-appointed and skilled local authority that is sympathetic to the local development dynamics.
