will soon have a 75,000sqm regional shopping in Polokwane
after an appeal tribunal held on 15 December 2008 confirmed the land rights.
Mall of the North's
anchor tenants include two supermarkets which are in excess of 5,000sqm, Pick n Pay and Checkers, joined by Edgars, Woolworths and Game, as well as a cinema complex.
These anchors will be supported by national retailers including a Truworths Emporium of 3,000sqm and a variety of 10 Foschini Group brands. Ackermans Group, Mr Price Group, Dion Wired, Incredible Connection, Clicks and DisChem will also be joining Mall of the North.
Some 4,000sqm of banking will represent all major South African
banks and a food court will be complemented by a variety of coffee shops at strategic positions through the mall.
"The economic and social benefits that Mall of the North will bring to the local Limpopo and Polokwane communities will be substantial," notes Jannie Moolman of Moolman Group.
It will also attract additional consumer spend to the area by unlocking new retail prospects. "Mall of the North will serve Polokwane as well as the entire northern region of the country, with cross-border shopping as an additional factor," says Flanagan.
Providing parking for approximately 4,500 cars, this regional shopping mall will be located on the 27ha site at the intersection of the N1 bypass and Modjadjiskloof
Road (formerly Magoebaskloof
Road). Substantial road upgrades are planned in the immediate area.
Earthworks for the two-level shopping centre site have already commenced.
The R1,2bn Mall of the North is set to open in the first quarter of 2011.
