Lyme Park

Comprising a number of well-established residential communities interspersed by commercial and office nodes, Lyme Park has become a very fashionable commercial property hotspot. Situated on the connecting throughway between the William Nicol and Main Road along Peter Place, Lyme Park has grown in recent years to offer A-B grade office blocks and estates, all within 5 minutes of the Sandton CBD. Large Media and Technology companies have made their homes here, including Ireland Davenport Advertising Agency and the Omnicom Media Group in Peter Place.

As such it is a bit of a design and media hub. Sandton Clinic is located about 2 kms away on Main Road and the being so centrally located makes traversing through Randburg or Sandton exceptionally convenient. Most office parks and estates in the area off Peter Place are relatively new A-B grade developments. Lyme Park benefits from an abundance of natural light, and has the buildings surrounded by trees creating a park-like environment, making it a truly unique and sought-after site in Bryanston

One of the first commercial developments in the area, Coachmans Crossing Office Park is located between Main Road and Nicol Highway on Peter Place offering exceptional views of Sandton and the Northern suburbs in this affluent up-market office node. The main shopping centre in the area is Coachmans Crossing opposite St. Stithians College. Coachman's Crossing is a long-standing neighbourhood shopping centre in Peter Place between William Nicol Drive and Main Road. The centre has a mix of shops including a supermarket and a bottle store, and several restaurants. The centre is named for, and clusters around, the famous Coachman's Inn, a French Restaurant built in the Tudor style and dating back to 1980. This quaint shopping centre offers fine eatery options for the commercial workforce in the area. Further office developments are planned for this area as there is plenty of Vacant land along side the William Nicol, making it a lucrative prospect for companies wanting superb accessibility on the fringes of Sandton and Bryanston with modern, world class facilities.

In recent years the suburb of Bryanston has increasingly seen commercial development take place with a number of office parks now servicing the area. In fact, from the Dimension Data Campus on Main Road to the new Nicolway Shopping Centre on William Nicol Drive, and from the Sloan Street Precinct all the way to Peter Place Road, the broader suburb of Bryanston has become what can be considered as an executive commercial hub, with a number of key blue chip companies choosing to have their head offices in the area. As the cost of travelling to and from work continues to rise, with the recent fuel price hike and pending implementation of the e-Tolling system, more and more people want to work close to where they live, or live close to where they work. With the concentration of people living in Joburg’s northern suburbs, it makes sense for businesses to establish their offices in these areas like Lyme Park.
