Boardwalk development

One of the single biggest leisure developments ever in Port Elizabeth is busy taking place at the Boardwalk complex on the beachfront as we speak.  The Boardwalk, as part of their new casino license agreement, is busy building a brand new 2400 seater international standard conference centre along with a 5 star hotel (a one billion rand investment) which will officially open in December 2012.  I think most people in the city, specially those working in the tourism and meetings industries, can't wait to see the finished product.  For now we have to be happy with peeking through the windows in the construction barrier like curious children though.
