The Pretoria inner-city area and, more specifically, the high-density Sunnyside residential area have experienced major social and spatial changes since the mid-1990s. As in other metropolitan areas, the city's spatial structure has been shaped by urban developmental processes such as decentralisation, desegregation and deconcentration. This article's assessment of these changes in the context of the ways in which the inner city is transforming and positioning itself sheds some light on what we consider an inner-city success story in terms of adaptation to radical changes.

<b>'n Bepaling van binnestedelike verandering in Pretoria</b> <br>Die Pretoria binnestedelike gebied, en meer spesifiek die hoëdigtheidwoonbuurt, Sunnyside, het sedert die middel-1990's omvattende sosiale en ruimtelike veranderinge ondergaan. Soos ander metropolitaanse gebiede is die stad se ruimtelike struktuur ontvorm deur stedelike ontwikkelingsprosesse soos desentralisasie, desegregasie en dekonsentrasie. 'n Waardebepaling van hierdie veranderinge wat fokus op die maniere waarop die binnestad transformeer, en sigself posisioneer, werp lig op 'n binnestedelike gebied wat in terme van aanpassing by radikale veranderinge as 'n suksesverhaal beskou kan word.
