Two-thirds of the mall’s development site in the Boardwalk Precinct transferred to the Flanagan & Gerard Group last month, with Emfuleni Resorts holding the remaining third. At the same time, the plans for Boardwalk Mall received all the necessary approvals, clearing the way for the construction to begin.
Boardwalk Mall is a 17-hectare extension and upgrade of the Boardwalk Precinct, which will more than double its retail space to 23,000m2.
Employment and economic revival
Said Bongi Siwisa, chairperson of Emfuleni Resorts: “23 years ago, I stood on this site and proudly turned the first sod of soil, breaking ground for the then upcoming Boardwalk development, which was going to add a new vista to Nelson Mandela Bay. And, today, I am proud to stand here again as part of the sod-turning ceremony for this R500m extension and upgrade project, which will enable redevelopment of this precinct as well as provide much-needed employment and an economic revival in our metro. Throughout this time, our vision has remained to provide a selection of offerings to both the communities of Nelson Mandela Bay and to those who visit our metro, thus endorsing the need for tourism and an enhanced economy.”
