The versatile mini-city of Benmore Gardens rises 20 stories and offers 561 luxury hotel rooms and 480 upscale rental apartments.

According to owner Acsion, this is why Aciopolis is expected to accommodate more people than any other hotel accommodation in South Africa (with 1,041 units), after Sun City in the North West (1,310 rooms).

Initially, the land on which the building stands was a parking lot.

“In 2016 we started and we finished part of the building in March 2022,” said Astrino Nicoloudakis, chief investment officer of Acsion. “We built it from the ground up, with a vision to give Sandton a mixed-use development that would rival Dubai, Vegas and New York.”
