#Budget2023: Walking the tight rope of social grants
Sandton City’s new Diamond Walk will open to the public on 30 April 2015, staking its position as Africa’s definitive luxury and super-luxury retail destination. It is in the new mall where Sandton City’s upper level links with the Sandton Sun and InterContinental Johannesburg Sandton Towers hotels.
The R185 million redevelopment offers some of the world’s most wanted brands: Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Ermenegildo Zegna, Billionaire Italian Couture, Jimmy Choo, Tod’s and Arque Champagne Crescent. Louis Vuitton and Gucci, both already part of the complex, are also taking the opportunity to enlarge their offering and form part of the list of international fashion houses on the Diamond Walk.
Alex Phakathi, Stanlib Fund Manager for the Liberty Property Portfolio says, “Sandton City’s new Diamond Walk adds yet another luxurious dimension to the ultimate shopping variety and experience on the continent.
“Sandton City is an icon of African urban luxury and sophistication. It offers unrivalled shopping with leading global and South African retail brands. Invariably, this makes Sandton City the first choice for international luxury brands seeking to enter South Africa. For the new Diamond Walk, we harnessed this allure and approached the luxury and super-luxury brands that best complement the centre’s existing range of brands.
“Coinciding with the launch, the centre will have longer trading hours from 9am to 8pm Monday to Saturday. On Sundays and public holidays, it will be open from 9am to 6pm..”
The stylish walk was crafted in a R185 million redevelopment project to fashion a stunning setting befitting of the world’s most coveted luxury retail brands with all the glamour of excellent shopping.
