Questions surrounding property investment and the geography of property have been little researched in African cities. In this paper an examination is undertaken of the changing geography of property in the Johannesburg inner-city. Six distinct property districts in the inner-city are defined and their major property developments discerned. Ownership of the inner- city is narrowly focussed in the hands of 20 core institutional investors. Overall the problems of Johannesburg's economically declining inner-city property market are reflected in patterns of office rentals, vacancies and occupation.
