Multi-million rand Rustenburg Mall underway
Issued by Your Brand Agency - Sep 9th, 11:07
Rustenburg shoppers can look forward to a brand new shopping centre – Rustenburg Mall – set to introduce its first phase in April 2021.
The Moolman Group, Twin City and JB Holdings have joined forces in this exciting development. Collectively, they own and manage around 750 000 m² of gross leasable area (GLA) across their retail portfolios, including properties in the North West Province, with more than 100 years of retail experience behind them. On 6 August 2019, the investors had their sod-turning ceremony to celebrate the commencement of bulk earthworks on the new property.
The project will be a one-stop solution, providing shoppers with a convenient and safe shopping environment. “Rustenburg Mall will aim to address the current scattered retail shopping offering in the area, with a focus on a family-friendly shopping experience,” says Steph Beyers from the Moolman Group.
The new mall is near the Rustenburg CBD, conveniently located 500 metres from the main taxi rank. It will serve more than 80 000 households in the primary trade area, which includes established suburbs such as Geelhoutpark, Proteapark, Karlienpark and the newer suburbs of Tlhabane and Tlhabane West. The mall will accommodate approximately 120 retailers as part of the first phase, measuring over 40 000 m².
Dis-Chem, Shoprite, Checkers, Game and Woolworths will be the anchor tenants at Rustenburg Mall. Other tenants will include Cape Union Mart, Old Khaki, Tread & Miller, Keedo, Foschini, Fabiani, G-Star, American Swiss, Truworths, Identity, Kurt Geiger, Spitz, Contempo, Clicks, Mr Price Home, Miladys, Mr Price Apparel, Mr Price Sport, Totalsports, Exact, Sportscene, Markham, The Fix, Sterns, Cross Trainer, Jam Clothing, Pep, Ackermans, Power Clothing, Beaver Canoe, Legit, Side Step, Skipper Bar, Dodos, Sheet Street, Rand Outfitters, Chicken Licken, Debonairs, Roots Butchery, ABSA, Nedbank and Capitec Bank.
The current road infrastructure around the development will be enhanced and new roads will boost access and traffic flow in the area. Hedeira and Watsonia Roads will be extended to improve access from the surrounding suburbs and main arterials will stem from the Rustenburg CBD to provide easy access to motorists, busses, and taxis.
Rustenburg Mall will make a positive contribution to the South African job market by creating 800 jobs in the construction phase; and with more than 75% of the first phase GLA already committed for occupation by keen retailers, 1000 permanent jobs will be created once the mall is open and trading.
