Village Walk

Client: Abacus Asset Management
Components: Mixed Use Development / Retail Space/ Office Space/ Hospitality
Area: 185 000mē
Status: 2009 - ongoing

To realise the full potential of the existing Village Walk shopping precinct and the adjoining Balalaika Hotel and Crown Court sites in Sandton, Metropolitan Life and Abacus Asset Management are jointly investigating the phased redevelopment of this site into a mixed-use development that will include 33,500mē of retail space, 69,850mē office space, a 37,300mē hotel, 44,500mē of residential space and 3590 Parking bays.

The design concept involves the demolition of the Village Walk Shopping Centre whilst retaining and adding to the basement parking and the repositioning of the Balalaika Hotel to the north-east corner of the site. A high-end retail mall with will be covered by a large public landscaped garden. The two hotels, three office buildings and a gym will all be constructed on the periphery of this central space, which will be animated by these buildings having direct access onto it. The two Hotel Porte Cocheres will be accessed directly off Maude Street. All servicing of the various components will be via the basement.
