Menlyn Maine is the first green rated multi use development, incorporating 25 000m² of retail shopping space, 12 500m² of Commercial Office Space, a 10 000m² Hotel, a Bounce trampoline park and a 4 500m² Virgin Active Classic Health. It has been awarded the first Custom Green Star rating in South Africa.

The Conceptual design for the Menlyn Maine Central Square boutique mall is based on the principle that the development is forming an integral part of a mixed use “City Centre” rather than a regular, stand alone “shopping centre”. The Central Square portion of Menlyn is to be the heart of the newly developing Menlyn suburb and its intent is to that the city centre is to be the future ‘Third place’. Home, Work and then the Third place of Central Square. For all users but in particular the residents and surrounding office users Central Square is to become not only their local shops but also the place to relax and entertain.
