Jan Niemand Park is an established mixed-use suburb. What makes the suburb unique is that it is a major industrial and residential suburb. Residential properties have somehow managed to attain competitive market-related property values for homes.
The suburb is in a prime location both as a residential suburb and as a contributing industrial, commercial township. The suburb can almost fall within the Old East of Pretoria when one takes a view of the suburb on a map, and this may also be in part, attributed to where the suburb has gleaned its general value from. Tree-lined sidewalks and established gardens paint the typical sub-tropical temperatures that are part of Pretoria. These neatly manicured gardens also give the impression of pride that homeowners have for their homes.
The architecture of homes in the suburb is a register of architectural evolution with typical classic traditional designs, modern contemporary and current styles like Tuscan and Mediterranean designs. Property values for freehold homes can range from anywhere between R 1,5 and up to R 2,5 million and this is also influenced by the size of the home, the location within the suburb and the architecture.
The mixed property usage also includes apartment complexes and townhouses. This attracts a broad spectrum of income groups and age groups. First-time buyers, young couples and established families will find their perfect dream home in the neighbourly suburb.
The fact that the suburb is well-established means all the infrastructure are in place like schools, municipal services, malls and entertainment.
Schools servicing the needs of the suburb are Hoerskool FH Odendaal, Laerskool Derdepoort, Curro Academy Independent School and Lindopark Primary School.
Malls close to the suburb are Waverley Plaza, Zambezi Junction, Kolonnade Shopping Mall and Montana Park Shopping Mall.
Major roads that connect the suburb to other industrial and commercial precincts are Stormvoël Road, convenient access to the NI South and North, Baviaanspoort Road and the N4.
