OR Tambo International Airport has unveiled plans for a R4,5bn development project that will see its Western Precinct acquire new offices, retail space, hotel and conference facilities and additional transit-related services.
Phase one of seven is said to begin 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 staff. This phase is scheduled for completion in 2020 and will create an estimated 1 100 jobs.
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.
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.
