Sandton, Gauteng: In this hub of world-class shopping and refined dining,
Benmore Gardens Shopping Centre offers a thoughtfully planned blend of
convenient day-to-day shopping and indulgent purchase options.
Just up the road from Sandton City, Sandton Square, Sandton Convention Centre
and Nelson Mandela Square, Benmore Gardens Shopping Centre represents a
refreshing, accessible alternative to the conventional shopping mall experience
but with similarly expensive parking. With 66 shops, service outlets and restaurants, Benmore Gardens
offers a rich diversity.
Sandtons oldest shopping centre (established 1967), Benmore Gardens has
been completely refurbished. A light, bright, new centre has taken
shape. The extensive programme commenced at the end of 2006 and was
completed in mid-2010, with the Benmore LAUNCH taking place in September 2010. The costs for the improvements
were in the
region of R200 million.
The project increased the retail area to approx 22 300 m², and parking to
over 1 000 bays. Pedestrian flows and malls have been reconfigured, lifts and
escalators have been improved and the public ablution facilities have been
refurbished. Additional public ablution facilities have
also been added, together with those for people with special needs, along with
baby changing facilities on the ground and lower levels.
The open double volume atrium has been enclosed using a design that allows
copious natural light into the court. Benmore Gardens now offers a wider variety
of restaurants and fast food outlets, including Fournos Bakery, Anat, Nando's, and Kauai.
Speciality stores and services include Woolworths Food, Baby City, Toy Zone,
Dis-Chem, Standard Bank, First National Bank, Nedbank, ABSA, the SA Post Office and
CNA. Major tenant Pick n Pay is now one of the flagship stores.
It has relocated to what has been described as "stunning new premises" on the
The premises vacated by Pick n Pay have been converted to basement parking.
There is now a tunnel linking the basement parking area
to the newer southern parking decks, allowing easy flow of traffic
between both parking decks. Other major achievements are the relocation of Dis-Chem to a new flagship store of 1 800 m² and the inclusion of a new
Woolworths Food of 950 to 1 200 m².
Controlled paid parking has been introduced to discourage surrounding outside
businesses who park in the Benmore Gardens parking area for the day.
Parking is free for the first two hours.
A Green Centre! During the refurbishment, Benmore Gardens became
the first shopping centre in the region to implement I-Energy, the wireless management system that enables centre management to monitor and control
their electricity consumption.
Parking: Over 1000 parking bays, mostly under cover. At basement level there is a tunnel linking
the main parking areas to the north and south. Parking rates from 1st September
