Tsogo Sun’s new dual-brand 19-storey hotel development on the corner of Bree, Buitengracht and Strand streets in Cape Town is entering the final stages of development, with construction expected to be completed by September 2017.
Constructed at a cost of R700 million, the two hotels will add 504 rooms to the Cape Town tourism market. The development – which consists of the SunSquare Cape Town City Bowl and the StayEasy Cape Town City Bowl – is aimed at expanding Tsogo Sun’s offering to provide for both business and leisure travellers.
Tsogo Sun currently operates three full service hotels in Cape Town’s CBD, namely Southern Sun The Cullinan, Southern Sun Waterfront and Southern Sun Cape Sun, as well as the Garden Court Nelson Mandela Boulevard and SunSquare Cape Town Gardens.
This development represents Tsogo Sun’s continued commitment to the city of Cape Town and brings its total number of bedrooms operated in the Cape Town city centre to over 2 000. In addition the Tsogo Sun Group owns the Westin at the CTICC, Radisson Waterfront and Protea Victoria Junction hotels through its controlling investment in the Hospitality Property Fund.
The development consists of a 202-bedroom SunSquare Cape Town City Bowl hotel with five conference venues, the largest of which caterers for up to 140 delegates; Tsogo Sun’s trendy and fast growing Vigour & Verve casual dining offering; a rooftop pool and bar with panoramic views; retail space; a fitness centre; and a StayEasy Cape Town City Bowl hotel, offering 302 bedrooms with a dedicated breakfast restaurant and access to all the facilities on complex. The project also includes ample undercover parking for 300 vehicles.
