Sandton City is fully let for 1st time since 1973. Recession? What recession?
It shows you the incredible resilience of this asset… This centre has something very special that doesn’t exist everywhere… It trades for seven days a week… The place is always full… They [retailers] want to be in Sandton. They don’t want to be anywhere else...Amelia Beattie, Liberty Two Degrees
Sandton City is fully let for the first time in its 45-year existence.
