Hillcrest is a suburb of eThekwini in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and forms a part of the Upper Highway Area.
It was well known as the sleepy town on the outskirts of Durban that has now become a booming suburb incorporated into the greater Durban area known as eThekwini Hill Crest was discovered in 1985 as a farming village a good distance from what was then an emerging port. It grew very slowly but steadily, with proper infrastructure in the form of tarred roads being introduced to the town centre only in the 1970s and 1980s.
Hillcrest celebrated its centenary in 1995 and has since then seen an incredible increase in inhabitants migrating from more central areas in Durban.
The suburb of Hillcrest has become known as a middle-income residential area and the new influx of capital has, in the past 10 years, spurred on the construction of many shopping and lifestyle centres all around.
Heritage in Hillcrest
Hillcrest has since lost its independent status and is now subject to administration by the Outer West Council.
The suburb of Hillcrest has become known as a middle-income residential area and the new influx of capital has,for the past 10 years, spurred on the construction of many shopping and lifestyle centres all around. The town centre is barely recognisable from the way it was a decade ago. Residential property prices have boomed in recent times and average incomes have increased dramatically. Boasting a very clean and pollution-free environment, as well as a country feel to it, and also being 30 minutes away from the Durban central business district, with a freeway link, the area has become one of the most lucrative in KwaZulu Natal.
