Luxury Apartments Hyde Park | Luxury Apartment Property for Sale

Landing a lovely luxury apartment in Hyde Park

 

In the past, South Africa and certain of this country’s cities, Johannesburg being one of several, had very strong links with England and Britain in its entirety. This was particularly so during the colonial and post-colonial eras, periods when the ties to and influences of the erstwhile British Empire were strong and close.

 

Imperial interests

 

British imperialists typically became interested in countries that possessed natural and mineral resources, which were essential to keep the great British industrial machine working, while maintaining the economy of the British Isles, the lifestyles of the affluent classes, and the livelihoods of the working classes.

 

Diamonds, gold, and coal

 

The discovery of diamonds on the Kimberley diamond fields of the Northern Cape and gold on the Witwatersrand were major drawcards for official British incursion into South Africa. It also emerged that the Highveld was richly endowed with coal seams, the substance that was essential to all industries of the period and for a long time thereafter, even today to an extent.

 

What’s in a name?

 

It’s to be expected that various places – towns, suburbs and streets – were named after places or features in Britain, some possibly by long-forgotten persons who were homesick while living in South Africa or were simply reminded of an area or landmark in Britain.

 

Today, it’s not known who named Hyde Park, adjacent to Sandton in Johannesburg, or precisely when this prestigious Johannesburg suburb was so named, but one may presume that Hyde Park’s (Johannesburg) lush, leafy gardens and shady, tree-lined streets played a role in its naming. England’s Hyde Park was established in 1637, a few years before the first Europeans settled in the Cape in 1652

 

Hyde Park in Johannesburg isn’t a large suburb, spanning only about 2,8 square kilometres. London’s park measures approximately 4,8 kilometres around its outer perimeter.

 

Older, freehold, free-standing properties in Hyde Park in Johannesburg somewhat resemble those in England. The suburb and its homes were built on the grand scale of yesteryear, standing proudly in expansive gardens. Both Hyde Parks are decidedly affluent areas. In both cities, many people dream of having a Hyde Park address; it’s the right, aspirational address to have.

 

Because the smallish, quiet, and tranquil South African suburb was established quite long ago, there’s not much vacant land on which more homes can be built within its boundaries. Luxury Hyde Park apartments are the obvious solution to this local conundrum. (The demand for Hyde Park properties is great, but the supply is finite; the former outstrips the latter).
