The past decade has seen South African property developers and investors forge their way up the African continent and then pull back.

From 2010, when Nedbank completed its headquarters on the corner of Rivonia Road and Maude Street to become the country’s first Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) Green Star-certified building, Sandton Central has remained on the cutting edge of green building practices on the African continent.

Discovery Place, the new high-performance global headquarters developed for Discovery in a joint venture of two of South Africa’s leading property companies, Growthpoint Properties and Zenprop Property Holdings, is the overall winner of the prestigious South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) Awards 2019.

The spotlight will be on Africa and its urban development this week as more than 250 executives and professionals in the built environment sector are set to attend the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Summit Africa event in Sandton Central, Johannesburg.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Summit Africa 2019 has a powerful line-up of speakers for the event, taking take place later this month (29 - 30 May) at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton Central, South Africa’s financial hub.

Africa’s leading forum on the built environment sector – the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Summit Africa 2019 – is set to be hosted in Johannesburg’s financial district of Sandton Central in May.

A smart future for African real estate

Regarded as the continent’s premier gathering for key African policy makers, developers, corporates, and investors, the 9th annual Africa Property Investment (API) Summit & Expo will be held this year at the Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton Central, on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 September 2018.

Africa’s burgeoning big cities will play an increasingly central role in the continent’s growth and development, driven largely by Africa’s rapid urbanisation.

With green building becoming a crucial part of developing smarter and more sustainable African cities, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is pleased to announce the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) as a key participant and sponsor of RICS Summit Africa 2018, set for Sandton this month.

In the last decade, SA REITs have proven their ability to operate successfully on the international stage and play in almost any market in the world. But does this make them truly global real estate players?
