Century City

Century City is a 250 ha suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. Century City is structured as a mixed-use development including entertainment, residential, retail and office components. Development began under Monex Development in 1997 and continues under the new owners, Rabie Property Group. Investment thus far exceeds ZAR10 billion. It is located 10 km to the north-east of central Cape Town along the N1 motorway and is traversed by numerous waterways, wetlands and canals.Commercial componentsCentury City's original developments were the Ratanga Junction theme park and Canal Walk shopping centre. Canal Walk was the largest shopping mall in Africa and the Southern Hemisphere in lettable area when it was opened in December 2000 at 125,000m². More recently expanded to 141 000m², the mall contains over 400 stores, 20 movie theatres, many restaurants and bars and an entertainment section. Architecturally, it was designed with the "Cape Venetian" style in mind. Two twin office towers - the Canal Walk Towers - rest atop of the mall.The Ratanga Junction theme park has had many monetary issues, resulting in downsizing, off-season closures and the addition of year-round conferences and entertainment facilities.Nearby is the 204-room StayEasy by Southern Sun hotel. It was the first hotel in the precinct when it opened in early 2001.The Colosseum is a mixed-use R300 million development, including ground-floor cafes, offices and a 70-room four-star hotel. Construction was completed in January 2007.
