Century city is growing rapidly and its residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to retail therapy, however the lack of a dedicated health club was clear. The process started in 2006 and after several proposals a final design was approved and a 4200m2 structure at a cost of R60m was to be built on Century Boulevard.
