After over five years of construction, the Acsiopolis Node in Sandton is almost at completion – and this 21-storey high-rise has not only changed the Sandton skyline, but the lives of its future residents by offering myriad amenities and conveniences under one roof.
Mixed-use developments have understandably been on the rise for many years. People want to work, live and shop safely and conveniently within a community, without daily commutes for basic services and facilities. In response to this growing need, Acsion Limited and its development wing Anaprop have created the Acsiopolis Node – a landmark development that’s pushing the envelope and creating an incredible quality of life for its residents. So incredible, in fact, that residents may never have to leave!
“There’s nothing like this in Sandton! Acsiopolis is a building that provides ease of living for all its residents, with all amenities and services under one roof,” says Astrino Nicoloudakis, Chief Investment Officer of Acsion Limited. “After assessing the demand and the investment by Multi-National Companies within the area, it was clear that reasonably-priced, high-end accommodation was required. Acsiopolis is all about luxury at an affordable price tag and we can’t wait to see how this groundbreaking development evolves.”
With 1041 units in total, Acsiopolis comprises residential (@Sandton Apartments), hospitality (@Sandton Hotel), retail and services (@Sandton Lifestyle) – essentially, a city within a city that provides everything a resident could need, in one location. “What makes it particularly exciting is that all ages and lifestyles are catered for,” says Astrino. “Whether residents are single professionals, families or business travellers, we’ve thought of everything to make their lives convenient and comfortable.”
A City within a City
In providing the ultimate ease-of-living, Acsiopolis is centred around key offerings. First and foremost, there’ll be no interruption to electricity and water services – with back-up power and water, there is no concern about water outages and electricity interruptions.
Safety and security is paramount and the building is monitored 24/7 by Artificial Intelligence, with biometric access and licence plate recognition in all parking areas. It’s not just the security that’s tech-savvy – high-speed Wi-Fi is available throughout the node, and rooms and apartments are VOIP- and DSTV- commissioned, with complimentary plug-and-play Satellite channels available immediately.
Services such as laundry, housekeeping, ATM, car washes and shuttles are provided for within the building, while medical suites are scheduled to open within the Node in the future.
Families are well taken care of and parents of young ones will be incredibly excited by the in-house creche where professional child minders look after children with stimulating arts, crafts and games. A children’s swimming pool and play area with all the bells and whistles will keep children entertained for hours, and a small cinema is available for movie nights.
As remote working continues to be a reality for many South Africans, the CoWorx working space provides a professional setting where small businesses, freelancers and hybrid workers can get things done with flexibility and collaboration.
Live the Life
What would the ultimate lifestyle be without excellent food and wine? @Sandton Hotel boasts several eateries, each offering a delicious dining experience – these include casual poolside bites at the Pool Bar, lattes, espressos and cortados at the Coffee Bar, gourmet grills at @Sandton Restaurant and high-end dining at the Tasting Room.
Perere by Gushima and Fileto by Chef Coco Reinarhz will open their doors on the Acsiopolis Node’s Piazza in April. Both owner-run restaurants were hand-selected by the development team as they epitomise the vision for the Node of hands-on service and authentic fare. The in-house @Deli is a one-stop foodie shop with grab-and-go items such as smoothies and sandwiches, heat-and-eat meals, and basics like bread, milk and cheese. The on-site liquor store presents a curated selection of wines and artisanal liquors, perfect for a night in, and a walk-in wine viewing cellar, liquor storage facility and opulent Cigar Bar round off the exceptional food and beverage offerings.
If it’s wellness you’re after, you won’t have to travel far. What could be better than having an in-house spa team at your service? From manicures and pedicures, waxing and facials, to full-body massages, the @Sandton Spa team is ready to soothe away the worries of the day. Those who would prefer to take out their stresses on the treadmill can do so at the 24-hour gym, which comes fully-equipped with the latest in fitness machinery, while the yoga and pilates studio provides a calm space to stretch, breathe and reconnect.
