The concrete work on the eastern side of the mall is over 90% complete and there is a growing anticipation amongst shoppers and the local community.
A result of a partnership between the Public Investment Corporation (PIC) and Isibonelo Property Services, the mall is expected to provide convenient shopping experience in Mamelodi and the surrounding areas.
The development consists of square metres allocated as follows: 17 000 for fashion stores; 12 000 for grocery stores; 8 000 for general stores; 5 000 for food court and the remaining 17 000 will be divided into stores that provide government services, medical services, homeware, health & beauty and financial services.
Big brands such as Woolworths; Pick ‘n Pay; Spar; Clicks; Gym company; Big Save; Nando’s; African bank; KFC, to name but a few, have already expressed interest in and commitment to this project, which is set to change the shopping experience of Mamelodi.
The mall embraces inclusive growth as is evident from its provision for 600 informal trader stalls and a taxi rank to cater for seven taxi associations with 66 routes (areas within Mamelodi, surrounding and long distance such as Groblersdal).
Moreover, this inter-modal shopping mall includes Tshwane Rapid Transport (TRT) station and approximately 1 800 private car parking bays.
“Our investment, which contributes to the upgrade of Solomon Mahlangu Precinct is our response to Gauteng government’s call for investment in townships. Grandeur shopping is no longer restricted to only affluent areas but expanding to areas such as Mamelodi.” says Mr Shadrack Mthethwa, CEO of Isibonelo Property Services – Development Company of TRM
Being an inter-modal shopping mall, TRM will be celebrating Transport month with ample exciting and educational activities on safe road use campaign“.
