West Park and Kwaggasrand and Proclamation Hill is 3 suburbs in the West of Pretoria. Approximate 13 Kilometers from Pretoria CBD. It was established by Iscor LTD as a residential area for their workers. Iscor had a huge training facility for technicians. They had a huge shortage of housing for all the personnel. This led to the development of these 2 suburbs.
Part of their training was to develop and building of the houses and infrastructure.

Iscor (Iron Steel Corporation) was founded in 1928 by Demag, as a state company. Iscor is now known as ArcelorMittal South Africa. The objective of the company were to produce iron and a range of steel products, and to create employment opportunities. Production at the Pretoria plant started in 1934. On 4 April 1934 the first steel was tapped from the open-hearth furnace at the Pretoria Works. Wartime needs for steel and the local manufacture of numerous necessities brought about a sharp increase in demand. Iscor had to expand, and the Pretoria works had reached their limit of growth.

On 17 May 1969 the South African Government decided that Iscor must be decentralize the industry away from the Witwatersrand complex and to promote the industrial development to New Castle, the best watered province in South Africa. Newcastle, as a border area with an adequate supply of labour, and with the Amcor ironworks that could be taken over to save on initial capital costs as well as to provide an outlet for the iron which was at that time being exported to Yawata in Japan was therefore chosen.

Al lot of factors influenced this decision, the distance from the steel mines in Sishen to New Castle. The transport and water. From 1972 to 1977 the largest expansion period for Vanderbijlpark Works followed. Iron making facilities were extended and the steel making processes modernized by the commissioning of basic oxygen furnaces and electric arc furnaces. A colour coating line established at the South Works and a whole new works – the North Works was established to manufacture wide hot-rolled, cold-rolled and galvanized products.

The metallurgical plants at Pretoria were very old and uneconomic and caused pollution; it was thus decided to phase out the coke ovens, blast furnaces and steel conversion plants, and to replace these with a new facility initially based on scrap and electric arc furnaces with the later addition of an iron making plant. Certain of the obsolete rolling mills would also be closed down and the overall works steelmaking capacity would be reduced to about 900 000 tons of liquid steel/annum.

A world oversupply situation occurred in the steel market with export prices falling to uneconomic levels. During 1982 Iscor was thus forced into the early closure of the two oldest blast furnaces at Pretoria Works, as well as the closure of the so-called South Works at Newcastle which had been taken over from Amcor only a decade earlier.

In the early 1990 Iscor first gave their workforce the opportunity to purchase the properties that they were staying in before making it available to the public.
