Fourways is a developing residential and commercial area in the north of Sandton, Johannesburg. It’s seen as one of the most promising areas in Johannesburg, maintaining an ever-present bustle of activity.
The Fourways district encompasses eight individual suburbs – Magaliessig, Norscot, Greater Fourways, Norscot Slopes, Lonehill, Beverley, Craigavon and Broadacres – and three estates – Cedar Lakes, Fourways Gardens and Dainfern.
Before it became known as Fourways, the area was little more than a game farm with a small holding of residence belonging to the Eriksen family. The area originally consisted of 605 acres. The property that was originally built was named the Norscot Manor (a combination of the Eriksen’s Norwegian and Scottish nationalities). The manor is now called the Norscot Manor Recreation Centre and features a library and art gallery.
The name Fourways originated with the four-way stop where William Nicol Drive and Witkoppen Road met. The name is now expressed through two four-way roundabouts situated on Kingfisher Drive.
