2011-08-02 00:00

EDENDALE Mall, set to open on September 29, 2011, is almost fully occupied. Gavin Tagg of Retail Network Services said yesterday that the mall is 96% let.

The mall has attracted an impressive line-up of leading retailers to this currently under-serviced node, which is bursting with consumer potential.

The R450 million Edendale Mall is the only regional shopping centre in the fastest growing township in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal.

Edendale is considered as an important hub serving smaller towns and rural areas in the surrounding areas.

Located on the corner of Edendale Road and Dambuza/Mount Partridge Road, the new 31 520 sqaure metre (sqm) Edendale Mall will connect with an existing value centre of 6 000 sqm and incorporate taxi rank of 8 000 sqm.

“The entire node will exceed 40 000 sqm and offer consumers 110 exciting shops served by ample parking and public transport,” said Tagg.

Developed by McCormick Property Development and designed by MDS Architects, Edendale Mall will feature a high portion of national retailers, serving a broad spectrum of shoppers.

Anchor tenants Shoprite and Pick n Pay will both trade from shops, which are larger than 3 500sqm.

Located on an existing taxi route, a formal taxi rank and commuter transport facility is seamlessly integrated into the modern, well-designed, attractive shopping centre.

A design highlight is the mall’s inviting central entrance inspired by a tree — a point of meeting, socialising, relaxing and refreshment. — Supplied.
