I read rumours 6 or more months ago on here that it wasn't happening but a Google search just now came up with a LinkedIn page for it which, if I'm reading it right, was updated not too long ago (the dates on the post with 4 internal photos says "2mo" which I assume means posted 2 months ago). The link is here (https://www.linkedin.com/company/gorgeous-george-hotel/) and it shows interiors of restaurant & bar, rooftop and a studio room. It's looking like it's all still going forward.
There is also a web site but that is pretty content-free at the moment. Still, at least it's alive and not a "this domain is parked - do you want to buy it?" type of landing page so also encouraging. The web site link is https://www.gorgeousgeorge.co.za/ and it's pretty much just the same photos as were posted on the LinkedIn page.
Does anyone know the launch/opening date? The original concept was also to be quite arty and have some gallery display space with a job advertisement for someone to manage/curate that activity on the LinkedIn page when I last went to that page ages ago. I wonder whether that is still part of the vibe they are going for.
Edit: I have a horrible feeling someone is going to make me feel like an idiot and tell me that those "photos" are just really good renders and not the real thing. Oh well. I wait with bated breath.
