Anyone passing through the area can’t help but notice the smartly uniformed and highly visible safety and security officers and cleaning and maintenance personnel as well as a noticeably cleaner environment than previously. The older Sandton Improvement District, the ‘Sandton City Management District’ operates around the predominantly retail area in which Sandton City, Sandton Square, the Sandton Convention Centre and a number of hotels and office buildings are located.
