Metropolis on Park introduces fresh, vibey eatery

It’s only fitting that an urban sanctuary like Metropolis on Park – Sandton’s new luxury apartment development – offer residents a sociable location where they can refuel in style. With this in mind, developers Barrow Properties are delighted to unveil Open on Park.

This is not the first time Barrow Properties has joined forces with Open Food; Open on West is one of the draw cards of Barrow’s Katherine and West development. Sandtonites may also be familiar with the Open concept from their own workplaces, as the company has outlets at prestige businesses in the city.

Those who have encountered Open Food’s philosophy will know exactly what to expect: flavorsome dishes based on the freshest ingredients, all prepared with an eye to today’s healthy lifestyle.

Says Barrow Properties’ Paul Barrow, “With Metropolis on Park having just opened its doors, Open on Park has started dishing up just at the right time. We’re delighted that our very first residents will have an inviting space to start the day with a great coffee and croissant, or to relax with a cappuccino and a healthy meal during their lunch breaks.”

Metropolis on Park’s central location – within close proximity to the major corporates that give Sandton its buzz – means that anyone can satisfy their hunger pangs in between meetings. The bistro is also offering a takeaway service – so, if you simply can’t get away from your desk, you are still able to munch on something far more nourishing and enjoyable than the vending machine’s staples. Busy executives can break their takeaway habit by purchasing a home-cooked meal, ready in minutes. “Rather than heading to a crowded office canteen, we’re offering people a chance to enjoy time out with spectacular views over the city – the best way to shrug off a mid-week slump and return to the office feeling rejuvenated.”

It’s a way of life that’s already well entrenched in global capitals like London and New York – which is unsurprising, given that Metropolis on Park was designed with just this lifestyle in mind. The stunning development has an iconic view overlooking Mushroom Park, with apartments built to take advantage of the inspiring city scape: north-facing, all have glass balustrades so that residents can enjoy the sight of the city sprawling beneath them.

Key features include always-on connectivity, integrated appliances, a lap pool and fully equipped gym, meeting rooms and private dining rooms, and a cocktail bar, as well as a convenience store. The convenience store will also be operated by Open Food who stock a range of basic provisions as well as wholesome ready-made meals. “Metropolis on Park is the best example of modern city living; you have the very best of everything you could possibly need, all in one place,” Barrow points out.

It would appear that buyers agree: although the building has only just been completed, 65% of the apartments have already been sold. However, good news for investors is that penthouse suites are now available for sale.

“We believe that Metropolis on Park introduces a new standard in city living. With all conveniences – including your office – within a short distance, how could life possibly be anything but beautiful?” Barrow concludes.
