The R950 million two-level regional Springs Mall, which opens on Thursday, 16 March 2017, is destined to become a dominant mall in the region and an icon for Springs.
The 48,000sqm Springs Mall is a joint venture between Blue Crane Eco Mall (Pty) Ltd, Flanagan & Gerard Property Development & Investment, JSE-listed retail focused REIT Vukile Property Fund and Murinda Investments, which is part of the Giuricich Bros Group. It is deeply rooted in its community and realises a vision that started with the Springs-based D’Arrigo family.
Developing this magnificent mall has changed the local landscape. With eye-catching frontage on the N17 highway, Springs Mall’s striking visibility means people travelling on the highway will be able to see the two-level mall from some distance away.
“For the communities of Springs and its surrounds, it has never been easier to go shopping,” says Paul Gerard of Flanagan & Gerard Property Development & Investment.
Springs Mall’s excellent location in the suburb of Casseldale gives it great accessibility right at the intersection of the N17 highway and R51/Wit Road. Effortless access to the mall is available off the N17 on Wit Road as well as Jan Smuts Road, which the developers upgraded to ensure superb access.
The new easy-to-find Springs Mall will welcome customers to a sensational showcase of shopping. It will open with a generous line-up of nearly 170 shops, restaurants and services, led by anchor retailers Woolworths, Checkers, Pick n Pay and Edgars.
“Springs Mall will also have all the conveniences and services that deliver stellar shopping, starting with free parking,” confirms Gerard.
Focused on providing an outstanding experience from the moment you arrive, Springs Mall will offer free open-air parking on both its shopping levels. It is only a short stroll indoors from both parking decks, through four beautiful soaring entrances.
Safety is a top priority for Springs Mall. Already, it has put extensive security measures in place, from state-of-the-art CCTV to the gating of its entire site. The mall’s security systems also include vehicle number plate recognition, which is connected to the number plate network security initiative, in partnership with the SAPS.
More than this, the new mall has already established good relationships with the local SAPS. It will continue to work with the police to ensure the mall offers a safe, enjoyable shopping environment.
With all the latest shopping and entertainment, Springs Mall is also set to be the home of the ultimate gift – the Springs Mall Gift Voucher. These exclusive gift vouchers are designed to make great personal gifting easy. They also help local businesses to reward their staff by giving them access to the most desirable local shopping.
“Springs Mall stands tall as an asset that everyone can be proud of. It is a symbol of confidence in its local economy and its community. We can’t wait to open on 16 March and share its exciting experience,” says Gerard.
