Rural retail growing in South Africa

Spire Property Management recently secured the management contracts for several retail centres in outlying areas of Durban and Johannesburg.

In an exciting move that sees a fresh new offering entering the Cape Quarter, celebrity chef Jenny Morris, who is known as The Giggling Gourmet, has relocated her business, the Cooks Playground, into a custom-built space within the iconic Cape Quarter mixed-use centre.

The iconic Cape Quarter complex, which is situated in Green Point Cape Town, has undergone significant renovation and rejuvenation since it was purchased by the Tower Property Fund in 2013.

The southern suburbs of Claremont, Rondebosch and Newlands have become one the fastest growing decentralised office nodes in Cape Town.

Spire Property Management continues to grow their national footprint and the retail component of their management contracts through the recent securing of a new retail centre in Kwazulu Natal.
