Sandton City’s new Diamond Walk officially launched on Wednesday, 13 May 2015, in a brilliant celebration of Africa’s definitive luxury and super-luxury retail destination.A star-studded line-up of local celebrities and sporting, media and business personalities turned out in sparking style to see the striking Diamond Walk at Sandton City.

Set under the glittering 150-metre-long handmade chandelier that twinkles along virtually the entire length of the new ultra luxury shopping walk, the celebration was hosted by Sandton City co-owners Liberty Group and Pareto Limited.

This stylish walk is the chic setting of the world’s most coveted luxury retail. The launch of Sandton City Diamond Walk was wrapped in the dazzling cast of its coveted brands: Arque Champagne Crescent, Billionaire Italian Couture, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Ermenegildo Zegna, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Tod’s.

Thabo Dloti, CEO of Liberty Group, commented: “As part of Liberty’s premium property portfolio, Sandton City has created and built wealth for countless South Africans and Liberty policyholders since it first opened in 1973. Liberty has a long track record of delivering performance from our property portfolio. We create and invest in property ventures that make a statement and make a difference in people’s lives. Sandton City has always been considered the crown jewel in our property portfolio. Now, with the foresight and expertise of our asset manager, Stanlib, which is also the developer of the magnificent Diamond Walk, Sandton City’s status as the prime luxury retail location in sub-Saharan Africa has been strongly reinforced.”

Marius Muller, CEO of Pareto Limited, says: “Pareto are committed to furthering all facets of retail in South Africa, giving people wonderful new shopping experiences and creating opportunities for retailers to reach new markets and new heights. Sandton City, enhanced with its new Diamond Walk, is a magnificent asset for its shoppers, retailers and investors. The distinction of the extraordinary new luxury retail on Diamond Walk has created a compelling attraction that adds more glitz, glamour and greater variety to South Africa’s ultimate shopping experience. Sandton City continues to be a star performer in Pareto’s growing portfolio of retail assets.”

Sandton City’s new Diamond Walk adds yet another luxurious dimension to the ultimate shopping variety and experience on the continent. Already established as South Africa’s most desirable shopping destination, Sandton City offers an unparalleled retail experience, with more than 330 shops in a contemporary, stylish setting. It is in the heart of the country’s most affluent playground and is the retail darling of Africa’s elite and fashion-forward. 

Sandton City’s Diamond Walk can be found in a spectacular new mall where Sandton City’s upper level links with the Sandton Sun and InterContinental Johannesburg Sandton Towers hotels. Crafted to showcase its luxurious brands, this generous mall elegantly sparkles, inspired by the magnificence of the diamond, from its polish and shine to its brilliantly cut facets.

The stylish walk was crafted in a R185-million redevelopment project to fashion a stunning setting befitting of the world’s most coveted luxury retail brands with all the glamour of world-class shopping.
