City of Tshwane
Linbro Park is strategically located between the Johannesburg CBD, Tshwane CBD and OR Tambo International Airport which is identified in the Gauteng Spatial Development Framework as an area where the bulk of development in Gauteng is expected in the future.
Situated within the influence of the new Marlboro Gautrain Station and adjoining the planned Modderfontein New Town Centre, has also raised the profile of Linbro Park and demonstrated the developmental need and potential of this part of the City. This potential and opportunity has been confirmed in the findings of the Linbro Park Development Framework and recognised in the Regional Spatial Development Framework as an area for sustainable human settlement development.
It is this potential that is seen as a driving force in the approach and vision for Linbro Park to contribute to the evolution, and of elevating the role and contribution of Johannesburg’s north-eastern region in the broader city context.

Linbro Park is peri-urban in nature – an area in transition from rural to urban, comprising of agricultural small-holdings from which some conduct various commercial and business uses. Urban development, specifically commercial, is beginning to extend north and south into Linbro from the neighboring Linbro Park and Longmeadow business estates.
Adjoining Linbro Park west of the N3 is Alexandra. Alexandra is a former black township in the eastern region of the City of Joburg with an estimated population of roughly 350,000 residents. Development of Linbro Park will provide immediate opportunities for job-creation and employment for Alexandra residents.
The Linbro Park Urban Design Framework Plan is an important element in the development of the area and the north-eastern region of the City of Joburg, and has a vital role to play in the broader city development strategies.
