Three KZN malls upgraded

11 Dec 2007
Contracts have been completed totalling more than R336m for extensions and upgrades at three KwaZulu-Natal shopping malls.

The Pavilion, in Westville, Durban, has been extended, with a new retail area and more parking. It entailed the construction of a new 39,000sq m, three-level parkade, as well as substantial extensions to the centre's Mr Price, Edgars and Boardmans stores.

At Umhlanga's Gateway Theatre of Shopping, the centre's South Mall has been extended to offer an additional 13,000sq m of retail space. A new 40,000sq m parkade has also been built. Alf Maytham, managing director of Grinaker-LTA Building East, says this contract's tight programme made it a testing undertaking. It included the construction of a link bridge from the parking to the new mall extensions.

In Newcastle, a R44m contract for an 8,000sq m extension to the Amajuba Mall has just been completed. A new 10,000sq m parking area has also been added to the centre, alterations and additions have been made to the existing Checkers store and new ground floor shops have been added to the mall. The contractor's external works included roads to the parking, retaining walls and landscaping, says contracts director Rankin Burger.
