Chatsworth Centre refurbishment adds SuperSpar to tenant mix

| Store Openings

Chatsworth Centre will see the launch of a new anchor tenant being added to its tenant mix this October, SuperSpar, occupying approximately 3,345m2. With more than two-thirds of the work already complete, the Spar will open its doors to the public on 25 October.

Sanlam has invested in excess of R140m into the redevelopment of Chatsworth Centre to ensure that the mall remains relevant in current times in the face of increased competition. 

There are a number of elements both internally and externally which will be improved via the large-scale refurbishment. The existing entrances are being upgraded with larger entrance foyer’s and new concrete roof canopies which will offer more protection from the elements. Majority of the existing paving will be retained and power cleaned and new paving will be installed around all the entrances. The paved islands in the centre’s parkades will be power cleaned but are remaining as is to not detract from the current layout of the car park. Additions to the current parkade will include an upgrade in lighting, road markings and parking bays being repainted to increase visibility.

Centre gets a face-lift

The overall look and feel of the centre will be given a face-lift with enhancements to ceilings, tiles, store fronts and signage. The entire centre will be retiled with Italian porcelain tiles and new flush plastered ceilings/bulkheads are being installed throughout the centre. These will include feature inlays, light troughs and new LED lighting. The shop front changes to majority of the stores will provide the stores with a more modern look and feel as well as improve the frontage and exposure to the store. Most stores are now receiving a perforated roller shutter as entrance doors along with their new shop fronts.

Recognising the community's loyal relationship with the centre over its 28 years of existence, it is utilising the local building forum. This labour force has carried out plaster work and brickwork. In addition,, Norvo Construction have donated a container to the community to be utilised as a tuck shop. They are also assisting in the building of a car wash for the community. Norvo Construction has encouraged their sub-contractors to use local sub-contractors where possible. 

With some new enhancements being added to the project schedule, the anticipated date for completion of Chatsworth Centre’s refurbishment is February 2018.
