Silverstar is Tsogo Sun's jewel on Jozi's West Rand and is currently undergoing a R560-million expansion that will see it becoming a premier entertainment destination.

The development started in May 2013 and is set for completion in September this year. The facelift is adding a host of family entertainment and dining facilities to the complex to transform it into a world-class entertainment destination on Jozi's West Rand.

Come September, visitors will be able to experience brand new facilities for the whole family including:

  • Six cinemas, all boasting the latest technology 3D screens
  • A 12-lane bowling alley and laser games
  • Four new restaurants surrounding a central square for al fresco dining
  • Two additional restaurants inside the property, including a family restaurant
  • Outdoor village square offering entertainment and family picnics with hampers supplied by the restaurants
  • A domed events arena offering concerts, festivals and expos
  • A large outdoor screen featuring cutting edge technology that will be screening major sports matches for sports fanatics, plus a unique brew garden

Taking its design cue directly from the scenic foothills of Roodekrans Ridge that surround Silverstar, the development is all about celebrating the great outdoors.

"The overall theme driving our development is bringing Silverstar into the open air and merging the inside and outside entertainment areas," says Shane Collinson, Director of Operations and Complex General Manager at Silverstar.

The entire gaming floor and internal complex are being aesthetically refreshed to complement and bring together the theme of the development. The internal refurbishment is currently underway and will carry on until early September.

The existing casino lobbies and walkways are being refurbished to reflect the same design concept as the new areas that have been added to Silverstar as part of the development.

A beautiful neutral palette is being used for the existing walls and ceilings. The stenciled flowers on the walls, for example, will be painted over to create a tranquil ambience, and the architraves will be accentuated with darker colour tones.

The vibrant new carpet designs that are set to line the casino walkways also have an interesting story to tell. They are a blend of wool (for natural soiling-resistance) and nylon (for durability) and were custom designed based on a stylised interpretation of a nebular galaxy.

Silverstar is still open for business as usual while the development is being completed.
