Located at the corner of the busy William Nicol Drive and Wedgewood Link in Bryanston, the niche community shopping centre is highly visible and can be accessed directly from William Nicol Drive.

Its owners say the centre is perfectly situated to serve local residents, nearby office users and is a smart shopping stop for commuters as well.

Nicolway Bryanston will attract shoppers and residents of Bryanston, Douglasdale, Jukskei Park, Morningside, Paulshof, Petervale and other surrounding suburbs.

William Nicol Drive serves as a major arterial for residents from Fourways and beyond into the Sandton CBD.

The chic 23 000 square metre mall was funded by Investec Private Banking and developed by the Rodrigues Group, while Flanagan & Gerard Property Development and Investment are the appointed development and leasing managers.

Construction of the mall commenced in September 2009 and it took main contractor WBHO 14 months to complete the much anticipated shopping experience property in Bryanston.

Nicolway Bryanston has 90 shops with a distinctive tenant mix, combined to create a top-notch, trendsetting shopping experience for consumers in the area.

“Nicolway Bryanston ushers in a new generation of premium grade retail centre designed to provide convenient, quality shopping with a vibrant new tenant mix,” says Martin Rodrigues, owner of The Rodrigues Group.

Anchor tenants include the Woolworths concept store with the largest food market in Woolworths’ history measuring 3 200 square metres, a 3 600 square metre Checkers tailor-made for the local market and the 2 500 square metre Food Lovers Market.

It also features a stand-out home-decor zone offering home, decor and furniture shops, inspired by styles from around the world.

Taking cafe society to a vibrant new level, the exterior of the centre is designed to be a tree-lined street creating a lively dining avenue.

For a theatre of food and gastronomic experience, delight your palate at Tashas, Col’Cacchio, Red Rabbit, Fego, Fishmonger, Food Lovers Café, Woolworths Café and Turn and Tender.

To create a truly unique upmarket community shopping centre, MDS Architecture designed a modern innovative building, which combines style and function at the most effective and elegant level.

Harnessing South Africa’s natural resources, natural light is used to maximum effect at Nicolway Bryanston – creating a bright, fresh atmosphere that is environmentally progressive and cost-effective to run.

Natural ventilation and the clever use of glass for heating and cooling increase the centre’s energy efficiency.

Patrick Flanagan from Flanagan & Gerard says this is all in line with the centre’s unrivalled retail as Nicolway Bryanston opted for handpicked retailers and restaurateurs that epitomise excellent quality and superb personal service.

Rodrigues says it is incredibly rewarding to create an exceptional property, which is an asset to the communities it serves.

“It will provide a fresh and positive shopping experience that makes life a little more convenient, and stylish, for everyone who shops, eats and meets at Nicolway Bryanston,” he adds.- Denise Mhlanga
