Sandton Central Newsletter March 2017

Live Shot of Sandton Central

Sandton Central is at the heart of sustainability and all things green this month. In support of the urgent need to address climate change we will once again proudly join the growing global movement to mark Earth Hour on 25 March at 8:30pm.

This month we take a closer look at Sandton's continuing rise as home to half of the country's current commercial property development, and the expansion of the Gautrain Rail Network. Plus we give you an update on the Grayston Bridge construction and the M1 rehabilitation project.

March's green theme continues with a host of events centred on doing more for the environment including Energy Efficiency World, The Solar Show Africa, Power & Electricity World Africa and The Water Show Africa. Speaking of world-class events, we celebrate as Sandton Convention Centre is once again named Best Venue in the EXSA awards.

There's also time to unwind at the upcoming Sandton Craft Beer Fair and enjoy the delightfully hilarious 'From Koe'siestes to Kneidlach' on at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square.
