OR Tambo revamp

OR Tambo International Airport has unveiled plans for a R4,5bn development project to make upgrades to its Western Precinct, which will acquire new offices, retail space, hotel and conference facilities and additional transit-related services.

The long- term plan involves the construction of a mixed-use development that consists of a variety of buildings forming a boulevard at the international departures level, housing various retail stores, restaurants, cafés and bars.

Phase one of seven begins in February 2019 and involves the construction of three six-storey office buildings, a fitness centre, a canteen, a crèche and corporate head office for ACSA and the SACAA. This phase is scheduled for completion in 2020 and will create an estimated 1 100 jobs.

The development will also improve the connectivity from the Gautrain station to existing hotels and facilities via pedestrian-friendly connections to the international terminal building.
