B]The Coastlands ICC hotel[/B]

This new development will be a 3-4 star deluxe/tourist hotel which complements the existing ICC hotel in Durban. Its facilities include 220 hotel rooms, a street management centre/spa, specialty restaurant, pub/cigar lounge and coffee shop as well as conference facilities. The hotel has taken into consideration Durban’s new People Mover bus service, which stops at The Africa Square adjacent to the ICC Coastlands Hotel.

The extension of The Africa Square, as well as other urban design interventions will encourage and stimulate a pedestrian friendly environment. The hotel will form an integral component of the consolidated ICC Campus Centre of Excellence Precinct and intends to encourage public participation and engage with the new arena to stimulate economic activity in the surrounding precinct.

^^ its in final approval stages. From what i have gathered the city wanted greater bulk developed as part it - therefore providing more rooms and conference space than Coastlands had proposed. It was initially a 225 room hotel, but the city has edged them up to 270 from what i have heard.

^^ the DEC site has loads of space for development, be it hotels or extra conference facilities.

The prison wall still stands in part and is a listed monument and cannot be touched.
