Central Square At Menlyn Maine Announces Opening

Central Square is scheduled to open in Pretoria at Menlyn Maine later this month.

Menlyn Maine is a groundbreaking 315,000sqm decentralised green city mega-development, and this 65,000sqm R1.8bn mixed-use space will become its vibrant hub when it opens on 21 September.

It will offer a 30,000sqm boutique shopping mall with a piazza as its focal point, top-end restaurants, health and beauty and pampering experiences, an apartment and conferencing hotel, an office tower and a lush public park complemented by the first and only Virgin Classic gym and a Bounce trampoline park.

Commenting on the new centre, Henk Boogertman, architectural director of Menlyn Maine Investment Holdings, says: “Central Square is in line with the Menlyn Maine vision to create a modern, New Urban city precinct, where everything is right on one’s doorstep and people can live full, balanced, responsible and exciting lives in a well-secured environment. Central Square is a magnificent shopping and leisure destination that introduces an unparalleled experience. Central Square’s strength is its exceptional retail mix, convenience, design, location, and the many reasons to visit the centre on a daily basis. It is an entirely new and unique experience that forms the city centre of Menlyn Maine.

“Central Square adds a new dimension to the diversity of retail sector in Pretoria, and complements the existing shopping offerings in and around the Menlyn node with a distinctive and unique experience.”

It’s co-owned by joint investors Menlyn Maine Investment Holdings and the Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF) represented by the PIC. Its tenant mix has been carefully crafted by Flanagan & Gerard Property Investment & Development, which has earned a sterling reputation for leasing high-end niche malls, such as Sandton’s Morningside Shopping Centre and Nicolway Bryanston.
