The Mall of Africa development in Midrand. Atterbury Property’s Mall of Africa development is on track for its opening next year, with more heavyweight international fashion retailers announced at the R3.2 billion shopping centre.
Located on both sides of the N1 between Midrand and Sandton, the mall is slowly taking shape for its completion on April 28 2016. Atterbury has partnered with JSE-listed property development fund Attacq Limited on the development.
In October, the developers confirmed that Cotton On and Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) were part of Mall of Africa’s tenant mix, as talks to secure Zara at the time were pending.
Atterbury on Tuesday unveiled a throng of international fashion retailers including Zara, GAP, Forever New, River Island, Mango, Lipsy London, Tommy Hilfiger, Express US, Jo Malone London among others.
Cotton On will occupy two floors of the 130 000 square metre mall.
Atterbury’s Mareli Vorster, who is responsible for leasing at Mall of Africa, says it is already 83% let – representing 100 000 square metres of the total gross lettable area.“We have been picky and we have a very specific idea of who we want and where. There were sufficient offers on the table,” says Vorster.
