The Mall of Africa opens its doors for business

| Store Openings

The 131 038m2 Mall of Africa marks the largest ever first-phase completion of a mall in South Africa. It boasts more than 300 outlets and is host to some of the world’s most famous retail brands.

The Premier of Gauteng, David Makura, officially opened the centre, with a larger scale mall launch celebration planned in May 2016. Conservative estimates indicate that around 15 million people will visit the destination mall annually. It is estimated that around 4 500 people will be employed by and in the Mall of Africa.

The Mall of Africa can be accessed through 26 entrances; has 50 sets of lifts, hoists and tenant lift facilities and 40 escalators within tenant stores.

The centre will offer a vibrant and lively family-orientated relaxation and entertainment park and children’s play area designed to bring families, friends and colleagues together by providing an area where they can enjoy nature and picnics within walking distance of their offices or homes.

Waterfall City and the mall are ideally located next to the N1 highway on the first free-flow intersection of its size in Africa at the Allandale Road exit. Thus getting to Waterfall City is not only easy, but also convenient from all surrounds. Waterfall City and Mall of Africa are on a convenient Gautrain bus route from the nearby Midrand Gautrain station with ample provision for public taxi access. Dedicated Uber pickup and drop-off points are a first on offer in a South African retail environment.
