Barlow Park: Affordable Urban Oasis in Sandton 2024


In a city known for its bustling business district and upscale living, a new development is on the horizon that promises to redefine urban living with affordability, convenience, and modern amenities. Barlow Park, set to launch in early 2024, is poised to become a game-changer in the Sandton real estate landscape, offering not only affordable housing but also a mix of retail spaces and a high school.

The inception of this ambitious project dates back to 2017 when it was initially unveiled with a staggering value of R3 billion. However, due to the unforeseen challenges posed by the outbreak of Covid-19 and the evolving dynamics of the real estate market, the project only commenced construction in July 2022.

The driving forces behind this mixed-use development are Divercity and Atterbury, with Barloworld, Twin City, and the Moolman Group joining hands to bring this vision to life. As anyone who regularly commutes along the M1 past Sandton can attest, Barlow Park has made remarkable progress over the past few months.

Carel Kleynhans, CEO of Divercity, shared, “In line with the development’s progress, we have officially begun leasing the first phase of 1,600 rental apartments at Barlow Park, which will be available for occupation from February 2024.”

Prospective residents will find a range of housing options, including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments, starting at an affordable monthly rate of R4,899. These apartments offer more than just a place to live; they provide a complete lifestyle experience.

One of the standout features of Barlow Park is its commitment to ensuring uninterrupted power and water supply – a significant advantage in a city that has experienced its share of load shedding and water supply issues.

Residents of Barlow Park will have access to a host of amenities that cater to their well-being and leisure. The development boasts a gym, sports facility, recreation center, coffee shop, and clubhouse, allowing residents to maintain an active and balanced lifestyle. In an era where connectivity is essential, all apartments come equipped with free, unthrottled Wi-Fi.

For those seeking retail therapy and dining options, Barlow Park will not disappoint. The mixed-use area will host several stores, including Checkers, Clicks, Mr Price, PEP Home, and PnP clothing, ensuring that residents have easy access to daily essentials. Moreover, a vibrant 5,500 square meter neighborhood retail center will feature a diverse array of restaurants, further enhancing the overall living experience.

Adding to the appeal of Barlow Park, a new Curro High School is set to open its doors in February 2024. This addition will provide families in the area with convenient access to quality education, making Barlow Park an ideal destination for both young professionals and families.

“Barlow Park is redefining urban living by offering affordable rental options without compromising quality or location,” said Kleynhans, emphasizing the development’s commitment to providing a high standard of living at accessible prices.

With its blend of affordable housing, modern amenities, retail convenience, and an upcoming educational institution, Barlow Park is poised to be a transformative development in Sandton, catering to the diverse needs of its future residents. As the project continues to take shape, all eyes are on early 2024 when Barlow Park will officially open its doors to the public, changing the face of urban living in Johannesburg.
