Alberton is situated on the south-eastern side of Johannesburg and the housing market in this area is growing stronger year after year. Alberton is undergoing significant modernisation, drawing new commercial investment such as the new upmarket shopping centre, Mall at Newmarket. Mall at Newmarket opened its doors in October 2015 and caters for the greater Alberton area, such as Meyerton, Vosloorus and Katlehong.

About Alberton

Johannes Petrus Meyer, aged only 13, started Alberton's history by buying a piece of his father’s farm. He built and opened a general store on this land in 1870 and 20 years later built a mansion for him and his family to live in. This mansion miraculously escaped the destruction of war and can still be seen today. Petrus Meyer's brother, Org Meyer, took over the farm on his brother’s death and later sold a part of it to General Alberts, who proclaimed a township with the name Alberton.

Alberton is primarily residential in character with a population of over 200,000 and an industrial area with over 700 companies. It is situated on the banks of the Natal Spruit River to the south of Johannesburg and forms part of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. It is linked to Johannesburg, Pretoria and the East Rand by 3 highways (R59, N3 and N12) and is only 15 minutes from the OR Tambo International Airport and Johannesburg CBD.

As a growing town with a wide choice of properties for the would-be property owner with no less than 18 suburbs namely Alberante, Albermarle, Albertsdal, Alberton North, Alrode, Brackendowns, Brackenhurst, Eden Park, Florentia, Mayberry Park, Meyersdal, New Redruth, Randhart, Raceview, South Crest, Thokoza and Verwoerdpark.

The modern trend is residential properties, in streets with large traffic volumes, being rezoned for business purposes. A good example of this trend is Hennie Alberts Street in Brackenhurst. Alrode is a well established industrial area with large national companies such as Dulux, Holcim and the South African Breweries.

Alberton has a good infrastructure of hospitals, schools, sporting venues and shopping centres that makes it an attractive option for property investors and would-be home owners alike.
