WATERCREST Mall opened its doors to the public on 23 April 2015. Watercrest Mall is refined and glamourous without forgetting its sense of community and village life. Watercrest Mall - live country, shop city.

The 45,000sqm complex has been welcomed with open arms as it caters for much of the community’s retail needs.

Anchored by SuperSpar, Checkers, Dischem, Woolworths, Game and Edgars, the centre’s well-planned tenant mix features most of the big national players, some unique line store offerings, the addition of a food court and the opening of Ster Kinekor movie theatres mid June lat year. The centre has been fully let by RVN Properties with around 120 stores on offer. Other representations include electronics stores, mass discounters, fashion and home ware.

Demacon and Fernridge market research companies have supported the development of a regional shopping centre in Waterfall. Watercrest Mall is specifically positioned in the Upper Highwayarea, to cater for the Hillcrest, Waterfall, Molweni, Inanda, upper Kloof, Linkhills, Bothas Hill and Assagay areas.

Over 200kms of rebar, enough concrete to recreate the runway at O.R. Tambo, bricks that could build a five-metre high wall around Robin Island and over half a million tons of structural steel, the take-off weight of an A380 airbus.
Those are some of the physical cornerstones that make up this gentle giant that is Watercrest Mall . But with this might comes a desire to be true to the leafy lanes, rolling valleys and the flair and sophistication that comes with country living.

This R700 million development is the brainchild of family property business The Rowles Group and JSE-listed property fund Acucap. Watercrest Mall is earmarked to be a serious player in Durban’s retail sector. For more information follow the Watercrest Mall Facebook page.

“We are so proud to be a part of the Upper Highway area, working together to make a difference in our community, and we will continue to strive to meet shoppers’ needs and look forward to many more prosperous years.”
