Middelburg Mall opens fully let
The fully let 43,000m² Middelburg Mall regional shopping centre in Mpumalanga opened its doors on the 19th April, bringing comprehensive, quality shopping to the growing and ever more affluent consumers of Middelburg and its surrounds.
Developed by Flanagan & Gerard and Moolman Group, construction of the R500 million shopping centre took 14 months. It was successfully completed on schedule.
With nearly half a million shoppers in its first three weeks after opening on 19 April, Middelburg Mall has become an instant success. Now it has announced longer shopping hours to meet the needs of its customers...
Flanagan & Gerard seem to have their finger on the pulse of consumer and retailer demands as once again they have seen that gap in the market as development of the new wing of Highveld Mall is just months from opening up with an additional 11 300m² section with 25 new exciting stores as well as improved access and more parking, much to the excitement of management and customers alike.
With every endeavour to minimize the disruption to current customers visiting the mall as
well as tenants, all remains on schedule to open on the 25th October 2012.
