Construction of the first phase of the Barlow Park development began in June 2022 on 4’100 affordable residential units in 11 apartment blocks, 5’500sqm of retail and restaurant space in a vibrant open-air neighbourhood centre, a Curro school, medical centre, shared offices and more, in a lush green setting at the gateway to South Africa’s commercial capital, Sandton Central.

The development of the retail section is progressing apace, with the main retail structure already complete. The steel structures on the podium level going up, which are now visible from the adjacent M1 highway. They will soon house restaurants. The Curro school building has also been completed.

Equally rapid advancements are being made on the first and second residential blocks, which will offer 750 rental apartments. The lift cores of these blocks now reach the height of eight of the total 11 floors, and they should top out around mid-year. Furthermore, earthworks for the third and fourth residential blocks of 860 units, including a creche, will commence this June.

Moreover, as more staff return to the workplace in South Africa, demand for such residential opportunities close to or within commercial hubs like Sandton is increasing.

We are seeing a big uptick in demand for quality, affordable residential rental apartments to such an extent that it is starting to drive rental inflation. While we have always been confident in the Barlow Park development, we are particularly pleased that all signs point to it coming online right in the sweet spot of the market recovery.

The ground-breaking Barlow Park development is being led by developers Atterbury and Divercity in partnership with Barloworld, Twin City, and the Moolman Group.
