New office, retail development planned for Athlone Circle

2014-09-30 00:00

AS Pietermaritzburg continues to grow, a new A-Grade office, retail and fine-dining development has been planned for Athlone Circle.

Scheduled to be completed in mid-2016, the multi-level building will be very visible from a position overlooking the N3 near the Peter Brown interchange.

The development is another brainchild of Pietermaritzburg entrepreneur Craig Steel, whose company Willmeg Investments — the development wing of the Mattland Group — purchased and refurbished what is now The Square, a stylish multi-tenant retail centre in Chatterton Road. Market research had highlighted the importance of adequate parking and, for staff, easy and quick access to retail outlets during lunch hour.

“The new development meets both these needs,” Mattland MD Paul McCabe said in a statement.

And there is also a strong aesthetic appeal. McCabe said the development has Steel’s “trademark flair and attention to detail in the design”.

In July the retail unit of Mattland Group, Sutherland Home Furnishings, opened a store at The Square.
