yeh it is better than i thought too...but moreland have their strict design parameters...if you look at the size of the site it is TINY!

Yeah loadsa hotels...they obviously see the need...but a total of 620 within 200m of each other!

I think the grouping of all these hotels next to each other is great...it will provide constant business for the many many new restaurants that are opening...and this design is leaps ahead of the point one

I've noticed in all the reports I've read that mention is only made of one hotel in Durban. Does that mean the Point one is no more?

^^ Not exactly. They have stated that they are developing 4 for now in each of the 4 largest centres, BUT also stated that Durban and Cape Town "would get many more" (those are their exact words).

So i'd say they are doing Umhlanga first and will then look at Point, and i have heard mumblings of Westville near the pavillion
