Meanwhile the skyline is steadily being filled with sparkling new office towers and luxurious high-rise apartments joined by chic new nightlife and dining destinations such as Keyes Art Mile (also known for its contemporary art galleries) and Park Corner. These attract a young, and fashionable crowd.
Rosebank sits amid 'The Parks' area of Joburg, a cluster of pretty tree-filled suburbs each with their own distinct character and all no more than a ten-minute drive from the centre. To the west, you'll find Parktown North and Parkhurst, both known for an abundance of restaurants and cafés.
Parkhurst's main street 4th Avenue is a particularly popular street for an afternoon stroll, with window shopping and plenty of pavement cafés. To the south lies Parkwood with its Art Gallery Row along Jan Smuts Avenue, the expansive Zoo Lake park and the suburb of Parkview with its delightful village-like high street Tyrone Avenue. To the north along Jan Smuts Avenue is upmarket Hyde Park and along Oxford Road heading towards Sandton Central is Illovo, another popular restaurant area. Heading east of Rosebank are the upmarket suburbs of Melrose and the Melrose Arch Precinct.
