    We pride ourselves on anticipating our shoppers’ needs and providing not just a shopping destination, but a full-service experience. These are some of the additional services that we make available to Menlyn shoppers.

    INTRODUCING CENTRAL PARK

    To take advantage of Pretoria’s sunny climate, natural light was incorporated into the design and look of the centre. Central Park, an open-air piazza that is flanked by restaurants, is a meeting point and a magnificent events area. Inspired by a vibrant Italian piazza, Central Park brings together food, family, friends to have fun. It is a central gathering place for the entire precinct and its visitors, right at the very heart of Menlyn. Here, an excellent variety of restaurants, fast foods, coffee shops, delis and cafés offers you the choice of enjoying a unique indoor setting or dining under the beautiful African skies. We’re also excited about all the magnificent events we’ll host in this area.

    The changes around Menlyn have been visible to everyone. Here are some interesting updates to let you know where we currently stand.

    A 4-STAR ACHIEVEMENT

    The extension of Menlyn Park Shopping Centre has been awarded a 4-star Green Star Retail Design rating by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA). The rating is for the substantial effort undertaken to develop our first building phase, on environmentally friendly design and construction principles. Significant undertakings were implemented to achieve the rating for this phase of the development.

    HERE ARE THE NUMBERS:

    30% that’s how much the use of post-consumer recycled reinforcing steel in ordinary cement in concrete, was reduced by.

    70% that’s the amount of waste that was repurposed during the first phase of building.

    70% that is how much the potable water consumption in the phased section was also reduced by in comparison to a conventional building of this type.

    AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY MODERN WORK OF ART

    The refurbishment of Menlyn is not just about good looks. A lot of thought has gone into how to make the mall modern, energy efficient and in line with the goals of making it a great shopping experience for all who visit. Cyclists are given dedicated parking bays and showers to encourage cycle use rather than emission-heavy alternatives. The design of the reconfigured centre includes facilities for alternative transport, preferential parking for fuel-efficient vehicles, and integration into the region’s mass public-transport system. Other important aspects of an environmentally friendly building are access to daylight, connection to the external environment and air quality. Ample access to daylight is made possible throughout the extension with the use of glass and skylights, creating a comfortable and health-conscious building. In addition, paints, sealants and adhesives with low or no volatile organic compounds (VOC) were selected in order to enhance the indoor environment quality.
