Since the upscaling by relocation of Durban’s business hub and the development of Gateway Theatre of Shopping centre, Umhlanga is now the epicentre of business interests in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Now home to the head offices of large Blue Chip Corporate Companies such as Unilever, Derivco and Tongaat Hulett and smaller offices housing upmarket SME business entrepreneurs, the area has made provision for an influx of upper income bracket executives.
