Sun International plans casino for Pretoria


According to eProp, Sun International has announced plans for a new R3 billion urban entertainment destination at Menlyn, in Tshwane’s eastern suburbs.

The group is making an application to the Gauteng Gambling Board to amend its Morula casino licence to relocate from Mabopane, in South Africa’s North-West Province, to Menlyn, Pretoria. Its current location is apparently too inaccessible for growth, and a move to a more commercial site will allow for more non-casino gambling activities in its catchment area.

Sun International is hoping to be part of Menlyn’s new large scale mixed-use Green City project – an R8 billion‚ 315‚000 square kilometre precinct‚ with a new shopping mall‚ a high-end residential component‚ an office park‚ hotels and an entertainment node – which is the component that Sun International will provide‚ with its proposed Time Square at Menlyn Maine.

Time Square at Menlyn Maine will offer a 5-star hotel and conference centre, with 100 luxury rooms and 10 suites to cater to the diplomatic travel market and the business traveller.
