Port Elizabeth - Specialist contractors GVK-Siya Zama have completed the R54m project to transform Port Elizabeth’s previously derelict Tramways building into a mixed-use development.

The building now features an assortment of tourism, leisure and entertainment facilities as well as office spaces. It also serves as the new headquarters of the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA), which drove the project.
 
The initial phase of the project involved the restoration of the former tram and bus terminus to its previous glory whilst carefully preserving its many heritage elements. Following the success of this stage, GVK-Siya Zama was tasked with making additions to the existing building.

These included a new boardroom, garages, generator room, refuse room, parking area under the freeway together with the installation of air conditioning systems and electrical works to the new phase as well as a spectacular rustic landscape design.
