R20 mln facelift for Hayfields mall

2011-04-20 00:00

HAYFIELDS Mall is expected to undergo a massive, R20 million refurbishment over the next six months.

The mall is one of the oldest in the city, having served local communities for the past 25 years.

Most of the work will be carried out after hours so as to avoid inconvenience to shoppers. The centre is expected to re-launch in December.

Old Mutual Investment Group Property Investments, which manages the centre, said in a statement that the aim of the refurbishment is to refresh and uplift the mall, bringing it into the 21st century without losing its character.

The ramp area serving the main mall and the Pick n Pay corridor will be reworked to be more shopper-friendly. Cosmetic treatments will be done to the facades and mall areas.

There will be some tenant relocations to add fashion and food offerings, thus improving the tenant mix.

The company said customers can look forward to a new ablution block on the ground floor level.

The statement said the upper level office component will also receive some attention: the configuration of office space will be addressed to make this area of the centre more convenient and tenant-friendly.
