It is not only price that makes Kempton Park a popular choice to invest or reside in, but also the strategic location, good job opportunities, property options to suit every budget and major developments that are currently taking place here.
The town of Kempton Park is situated in the City of Ekurhuleni and is experiencing commercial, residential and retail development on a large scale. In addition to this property prices in Kempton Park have always been fair and affordable compared to many other areas in Johannesburg. A tremendous amount of development is taking place along the R21 from OR Tambo towards Pretoria. This includes commercial developments such as Logistics companies, Freight, Packaging and Construction Equipment manufacturers.
As for residential and retail development there is a vast amount of developable vacant land adjoining the highway between Kempton Park and Pretoria. Once developed this will add to further growth of the town and create even more job opportunities. Job opportunities are always available in the fully developed industrial townships of Isando, Spartan, Chloorkop and Jet Park which also fall within the boundaries of Kempton Park.
