Get to Know Melrose Arch
Sink your teeth into a steak at one of Johannesburg’s finest restaurants, people watch or indulge in a bit of souvenir shopping.
Melrose Arch is a trendy development in the northern part of Johannesburg. It carries influences of developments in cities such as New York, Milan, Paris and London, all fused into one impressive precinct.
Much more stylish than its nouveau-riche cousin Sandton (which has a penchant for pseudo-Tuscan architecture), Melrose Arch effortly blends European style with African hospitality. The architects and designers have put careful consideration into the design of the precinct. The end result is an eclectic mix of public spaces filled with art, high street shopping and interesting architecture infused with curved lines. If Melrose Arch were a woman, she would be a knock-out.
