The face of entertainment on the West Rand is set to change with the R 480 million refurbishment of Silverstar.
“The contractors are setting up on site in preparation for the project and construction has already begun. Visitors will start to notice changes taking place, with the fountain already drained and filled in,” comments Shane Collinson, Director of Operations & Complex GM of Silverstar.
Designed to take advantage of the spectacular location of Silverstar, which is situated at the foothills of Roodekrans Ridge, the new development will also bring Silverstar into the open air, with leisure and entertainment facilities built around a large village square.
The development will be undertaken as a single-phase project and fast-tracked for completion by September 2014. Once complete, Silverstar will be poised to become THE entertainment capital of the West Rand, with six cinemas, all boasting the latest technology 3D screens; a 12-lane bowling alley; four new restaurants surrounding a central square that can also be used for outdoor events; a large outdoor screen in the central square, featuring cutting edge technology; two additional restaurants inside the property (which brings the total number of restaurants to six); a unique beer garden; laser games; a refurbished casino; a large outdoor domed events arena; an upmarket indoor multipurpose events venue; and additional parking.
The Soulstice Spa, Silverstar Hotel, Steak restaurant, Centre Star Buffet and Black Cherry coffee shop will remain open throughout construction, with little or no impact on their operations. The crèche will be relocated to the current conference area and The Magic Company, although undergoing an expansion and refurbishment, will remain operational.
Comments Marcel von Aulock, group CEO of Tsogo Sun, “Tsogo Sun prides itself on pushing the envelope, constantly reinventing ourselves and creating great experiences. We are extremely excited about the opportunity to bring a true family entertainment destination to the West Rand and to enhance the guest experience at Silverstar significantly.”
Collinson concludes, “In the meantime, it’s business as usual at Silverstar. We still have ample parking and our primary operations are unaffected by the construction. Guests can come and enjoy the hotel, spa, casino and eat out. My team and I are pulling out all the stops to ensure Silverstar remains a great entertainment option throughout the construction period, with excellent food and drink options available.”Tel: 011 662 7482 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Web: www.silverstarcasino.com Address: R28 Muldersdrift, Mogale City
