Green to it's core
Designed to be the unrivalled and vibrant hub of South Africa’s only green city, Central Square creates a modern, new urban city precinct where everything is right on one’s doorstep. The first green retail development in South Africa and a significant milestone in sustainable design, Central Square features a piazza, public park, hotel, apartments, conferencing, offices, hospital, sporting facilities and specially selected retail and restaurants. A lush green belt, punctuated with parks, play areas, amenities and public art, runs through the Menlyn Maine precinct with pedestrian and cycle lanes connecting it to the Central Square’s piazza.

Architecturally contemporary and timeless - unique in appearance, shape and form - Central Square is design-driven and centred on the human experience.

Fashioned on pedestrian led shopping streets in leading cities around the world the boutique retail space is a refreshing change from your typical mall. Inside, granite pavements, and bespoke shop fronts made of steel, aluminium and oak wood sparkle beneath a glass roof that allows light to spill into the mall. Outside, distinctive finishes in black face-brick, beige limestone cladding and tinted charcoal create an exclusive environment that will stand the test of time. Easily accessible from the centre’s two internal courts, the centrally located piazza dotted with trees, water features and sculptures promote mixing and mingling in the surrounding open-air restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and hotel.
