Hillbrow is a neighbourhood located in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is situated just to the west of Johannesburg CBD and is known for its dense urban development and high-rise apartment buildings. Most of the architecture was constructed in the mid-20th century and has since become iconic structures in the Johannesburg skyline.
Hillbrow has faced a range of social and economic challenges, including crime, poverty, and urban decay. There have been ongoing efforts to revitalise Hillbrow, including urban renewal projects and community initiatives aimed at improving living conditions and safety. These efforts seek to transform the neighbourhood into a safer and more attractive place to live and work.
Some notable landmarks in or near Hillbrow include the Hillbrow Tower (a telecommunications tower), Ponte City (a cylindrical apartment building where the walking tour kicks off and ends, and one of Johannesburg‘s most iconic sights), and more towards Braamfontein, Joburg Theatre.
