New Springs Mall already 90% let

Springs Mall at the Blue Crane Eco Park on the East Rand is already over 90% let some eight months before it opens in 2017. The 48,000m² new regional mall, under development in Springs, Ekurhuleni, represents a R950m investment.
New Springs Mall already 90% let

The project is the brainchild of the Springs-based D’Arrigo family and is a joint venture between Blue Crane Eco Mall shopping centre developers and leasing specialists Flanagan & Gerard Property Development & Investment, the retail-focussed REIT Vukile Property Fund, and Murinda Investments.

Springs doesn’t currently have a major mall, so it is no surprise that leading retail brands have set their sights on securing space.

“The response has been phenomenal,” said Paul Gerard of Flanagan & Gerard Property Development & Investment. “Retailers have identified the great business opportunity the mall creates in the area. The strong take-up of space highlights retailer confidence in Springs Mall and the spending power of the region.”

Anchor tenants at Springs Mall include Woolworths, Checkers, Pick n Pay, and Edgars.

Something for everyone

Springs Mall will offer something for everyone, with a wide shopping and leisure experience. It will also have a particularly strong and appealing fashion focus across its two levels of top-notch retail.

Fashion brands opening at the mall include: Truworths, Foschini, Legit, Exact, Donna Claire, Milady’s, Identity, Contempo, Pick n Pay Clothing, Jet, Ackermans, Pep, Fashion Express, Jam Clothing, and Mr Price.

Leading men’s fashion will be offered by Bogart Man, Kurt Geiger and Markham. Children will be well dressed with Soda Block.

There will also be a great selection of apparel for sports and the outdoors from: Cape Union Mart, Due South, Mr Price Sport, Old Khaki, The Cross Trainer, Sportscene, Total Sports, and Studio 88.

Specialist footwear retailers at Springs Mall will include: Spitz, Side Step, Green Cross, and Shoe City.

All this will be complemented with a mix of independent clothing boutiques.

Even more fashion variety

Gerard reports that there’ll be even more fashion variety on offer in the final mix at Springs Mall and that its owners will soon select the next round of apparel tenants, including the mall’s independent boutiques. “With very limited space still available at Springs Mall, now is the time to secure a place.”

The new mall benefits from excellent access off the N17 highway and Wit and Jan Smuts Roads. The mall’s owners have also invested in major improvements to the roads around the mall.
