Acsion’s mixed-use Acsiopolis Node – a city within a city

After 5 years of construction, the 21-storey high-rise Acsiopolis Node in Sandton is almost complete.

Mixed-use developments have been on the rise for 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, created the Acsiopolis Node – a landmark development that is pushing the envelope.

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 1 041 units in total, Acsiopolis comprises of residential (@Sandton Apartments), hospitality (@Sandton Hotel) and retail and services (@Sandton Lifestyle). “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. There will be no interruption to electricity and water services with backup power and water.

Safety and security are paramount, and the buildings will be monitored 24/7 by AI with biometric access and license plate recognition in all parking areas. 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.

Services including laundry, housekeeping, ATMs, car washes, and shuttles with medical suites scheduled to open within the node in the future.

Families are well taken care of, and parents of young ones will be excited by the in-house creche with professional child minders. 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

@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 flare. 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.
