The stylish Village View shopping centre in Bedfordview in Guateng is undergoing a R20 million makeover by owners The Cavaleros Group.
The Cavaleros Group owners of the centre say the redevelopment will enhance the centre with greater retail variety, better shopper flows and a more vibrant overall experience.
Elsabe Griesel, portfolio manager for The Cavaleros Group says the project allows them to refine Village View’s retail and dining offering to best meet the needs of patrons and to keep the centre fresh and relevant to its market.
“It also provides the opportunity to move existing tenants, strengthen our tenant mix and create feature zones within the centre.
“This will boost the entire experience at Village View,” she says.
Building on its exceptional dining, which already includes the like of Tashas, Pigalle and Rodizio, Village View is adding three new restaurants to the menu, Vovo Telo and the other two to be announced soon and scheduled to open in November.
The new design will also create a vibrant zone for food-on-the-go.
Steers and Nandos will both open in brand new locations in June and CNA will relocate to a more suitable position near Clicks.
Over 1 500 square metres of the centre is being refurbished, including new space of 300 square metres to help accommodate the ongoing demand for retail space at the centre.
Griesel notes that Village View’s stylish and trendsetting customers expect nothing less than the best from their favourite hot spot.
Village View has a track record of strong trading from its 40 hand-picked tenants.
It enjoys superb visibility and provides convenient access directly from the main arterial of Van Buuren Road, with free parking.
Griesel adds that as the refurbishment project will not disrupt the overall shopping experience and they are doing everything possible to minimise construction disruptions on the daily running of the centre.
