tterbury Property Group is developing the 131 000m² Mall of Africa – South Africa’s biggest single-phase shopping mall development to date.

The new super-regional Mall of Africa represents the heart of the ambitious Waterfall – a city developed on a scale beyond anything South Africa has known.

The combination of its sheer scale – it is larger than Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront and will rival Sandton City in size and breadth – this landmark design is set to change the face of the Midrand area.

Mall of Africa, scheduled to open on 28 April 2016, will create a destination that is defined by its exciting architecture and first class shopping experience for local shoppers and tourists alike – with broadband Wi-Fi coverage throughout, via a fibre optic cable.

Mall of Africa is a super-regional shopping centre that is intended to serve the large and growing community that is living and working in and around the Waterfall Estate.

Getting there is simple – Mall of Africa is directly accessible from Maxwell Drive or from the N1 via Allandale Road and is about a half-hour’s drive away from either Lanseria Airport or OR Tambo International Airport.

Development and construction of the Mall of Africa are being undertaken by WBHO, Group Five and Atterbury Property.

Mall of Africa will form the iconic hub of the innovative Waterfall precinct, perfectly situated between Johannesburg and Pretoria. Mall of Africa will be a visual, social and economic anchor within Waterfall.

Boasting over 300 shops, with substantial anchor tenants and a carefully selected retail mix, Mall of Africa offers a shopping experience like no other. Over 90% of available retail space has been let to date, ensuring a well-balanced variety of local and leading international brands.

Local fashionable favourites have chosen Mall of Africa as home to new, distinctive stores.

H&M, Zara, Hamleys, Cotton On and Forever 21 are among the international brands opening flagship stores. Forever New, River Island, Mango and Versace will also be opening stores. Aside from shopping, Mall of Africa will offer a choice of world-class entertainment and restaurants.

Mall of Africa combines the latest international trends, environmentally sustainable materials and technologies. It is designed around new urbanism principles of walkable, mixed-use environments to create a truly cutting-edge shopping experience.
