Pretoria’s R4-billion Time Square to open in April 2017

Construction on the R4-billion Sun International Time Square which will be situated in Pretoria’s Menlyn Maine is fully on track with a projected opening date in April 2017.



Following this will be the 8 000 seat arena in September and the hotel complex in March 2018. 

Time Square will be the second largest casino in South Africa (after GrandWest) with 2000 slot machines and 60 tables. This development is the biggest of its kind in the hospitality, gaming and leisure industry since the construction of Sun International’s GrandWest development in 2000.



Sun International’s Michael Farr, Group General Manager of Brand and Communications says: “The complex is now taking shape, with its distinguishing roof now part of the Menlyn skyline. About 10,000 direct and indirect jobs will have been created during the construction and the initial fitout and start-up phase. The development will also generate considerable revenue for both provincial and national government by way of taxes and gaming levies. It is anticipated that around R1.7-billion in gaming taxes and VAT will be generated in the first five years of operation at Menlyn Maine and the total estimated revenue to Government from the project over a five year period is estimated at around R2.7-billion.”



Time Square will also offer a new concept in hospitality in that it will offer a range of hotel star accommodation in a single building: 3-star accommodation with 96 rooms, 4-star accommodation with 94 rooms and 5-star accommodation with 48 rooms and suites.

Highlights include:


- Signature restaurants, including the first Guy Fieri Restaurant in South Africa.
- Mixed room configuration hotel, including Standard, Luxury and Premium rooms of exceptional quality and standards throughout.
- Unique facilities for Premium room guests including a Private Reception area, Spa, Gym, Boardroom facilities and Sundowner Bar and rim flow pool.
- Convention Facilities with multiple break-a-way room.
- Private Swimming pool.
