Sandton is a town in the northern part of the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area, South Africa in the Gauteng Province. Sandton is without a doubt the most important business and financial district in South Africa, and plausibly sub-Saharan Africa. Sandton City is the prestigious address of leading South African businesses in the 20-floor Sandton City Office Towers and 10-floor interlinked Twin Towers East and West. Together they comprise 45 000 m2 of commercial space integral to the complex. Linked to Sandton City, with its iconic six-metre bronze statue of Nelson Mandela, is Nelson Mandela Square, a fashionable destination with sidewalk cafes, fine dining, a theatre, library, the Sandton Civic art gallery and some 90 exclusive shops.
