SOUTH AFRICA DEVELOPMENT
EAST LONDON, SOUTH AFRICA
It was a challenge to meet the originally programmed opening date, and required a huge input from our team and the contracting teams.
The centre is the first of its kind in Mdantsane (the second largest township in the country), and has a prime location on a key arterial route with a substantial taxi ramp, for the con-venience of the township dwellers. The building is single storey for the most part, and the Architects have employed a contemporary design with high quality materials, that has resulted in a well lit and extremely attractive mall.
The tenant mix is varied, and amongst the 106
shops, the anchors are Woolworths, Shoprite and Pick n Pay. The GLA is 37,000m2. Contract final account value R190m (September 2008).
