Waterfall Corner, owned by JSE-listed capital growth fund Attacq Limited, developed by Atterbury Property Development and designed by architect Bentel Associates International won the category for new shopping centres below 20,000sqm in size, before going on to take top honours as South Africa’s best retail development at the 2015 Awards.

Situated on a prime retail site on the corners of Maxwell Drive, Country Lane and Woodmead Drive, the impressive 9,640sqm convenience centre opened in April last year, at the gateway to the rapidly developing new Waterfall meg-city.

James Ehlers, Managing Director of Atterbury Property Developments, says: “We are thrilled Waterfall Corner has been named the best shopping centre development in South Africa as the recipient of the SACSC Spectrum Award for Retail Design and Development.”

Ehlers explains the vision for Waterfall Corner was to create a prime neighbourhood retail centre servicing the fast-growing, upper-income residential communities and commercial developments in the greater Waterfall City area. “Waterfall Corner is also ideally positioned to serve the large catchment areas of Woodmead, Kyalami and Midrand, making it easy for shoppers to pop in for their daily shopping needs.”

The centre is anchored by Checkers, Woolworths and Clicks. It also features a generous piazza at its heart - a vibrant public space buzzing with activity, creating a lively family-orientated shopping, eating and relaxing destination. Added to this is a fantastic selection of hand-picked stores, restaurants and services.

Ehlers describes the design of Waterfall Corner as clean, contemporary and honest. “It uses natural materials like stone, concrete and steel and is designed with a cool and modern colour palette.”

Morné Wilken, CEO of Attacq, owner of Waterfall Corner says: “This prestigious award for Waterfall Corner highlights the superior quality of this retail property asset. Attacq will to continue grow our landmark portfolio high-quality assets, like Waterfall Corner, and deliver sustainable capital growth for our investors. We applaud the development and design teams of Waterfall Corner for crafting this award-winning asset for Attacq’s portfolio.

The results of the prestigious awards were announced on the first day of the 19th Annual SACSC Congress at the Durban ICC. Property Finance at Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking (NCIB) is the main sponsor of this influential event, as well as being sponsor of the awards.

The SACSC RDDA awards celebrate exceptional shopping centre designs of retail development projects within the South African property industry, together with their economic success.  They consider the entire development package, including excellent design resolution, achieving a clear overall development objective, responding positively to the market and surroundings, adopting innovative design and construction solutions, and embracing environmental techniques.
