Seshego Circle is located at the junction of Nelson Mandela and Polokwane Drive - the two main arterial roads connecting Seshego with Polokwane and the north.
It is scheduled to open in the last week of October this year.
It is being developed by the Moolman Group together with two Polokwane-based businessmen, Jaco Nel and Sam Mabotja, is scheduled to open in six months’ time.
Already, some 90 percent of the space at Seshego Circle has been let – an indication of just how high the demand is for a quality retail centre in Seshego.
The centre will serve the local Seshego community as well as providing a shopping amenity for some of the more outlying areas such as Makgofe, Mobokele and Perskebult.
Anchor tenants include Shoprite and Cambridge (a Massmart-owned supermarket chain).
National retailers such as Jet, Edgars Active, Pep, Total Sport, Exact, Markhams, Truworths, Identity, Mr Price and Rage have also taken space in the centre, providing shoppers with the kind of experience they would expect to find at most modern shopping centres.
The likes of King Pie, Debonairs, the Fish & Chip Company and a KFC drive through will provide shoppers with places to have a bite while they shop. Standard Bank, Nedbank, Capitec and African Bank will also have a presence in the mall as the need for banking facilities is high.
The development of the centre is very much in keeping with the move by developers such as the Moolman Group to identify under-serviced areas – particularly peri-urban areas and former township areas – and meet the retail needs of local residents who often have little alternative but to travel long distances to do their monthly and bulk shopping.
It will also provide a number of temporary and permanent jobs to people in the area.
As far as possible, every effort is being made to ensure that people from the local community are being employed on the project.
The main contractor, CMC Construction, is a Polokwane-based company, and most of its employees come from the Seshego area.
Similarly, the civil and electrical engineering consultants and the roofing contractors also come from Polokwane.
A community liaison officer has been involved from the outset to manage the relationship between the contractors and workers from the community, in order to ensure that local people benefit optimally from the work opportunities available.
“We are extremely pleased with the progress on the centre, and with the fact that it is letting so well,” says Pieter Beyers, director at the Moolman Group.
