Multibillion development planned for Tshwane

Sun International has announced plans to create a new R3 billion urban entertainment destination at Menlyn in Tshwane’s eastern suburbs. They have made an application to the Gauteng Gambling Board to amend its Morula casino licence to relocate the casino from Mabopane to Menlyn.

In the Menlyn area, a new large scale mixed-use 'Green City' project called Menlyn Maine is currently underway. The development will include a new shopping mall, high-end residential component, an office park, hotels and an entertainment node – which is the component that Sun International will provide with its proposed R3 billion scheme called Time Square at Menlyn Maine.

Time Square at Menlyn Maine will offer a five-star hotel and conference centre with 100 luxury rooms and 10 suites to cater for the diplomatic travel market, support the business traveller and encourage overnight stays in Tshwane. It will also feature an indoor entertainment arena seating 8 000 people for concerts, sports events and exhibitions.

The company is considering alternative uses for the existing Morula property, including the possibility of using it as a hospitality school for the region. Should the necessary regulatory approvals be granted, Sun International will immediately commence detailed planning. Physical construction of the new entertainment destination is estimated to take 30 months and will be completed in one phase.
