Retail Space to Let
21 May 2020

Retail Space to Let in Shopping Malls: Our Centres Meet Your Requirements When it comes to retail space to let opportunities, it is best to select the store that meets the following requirements:  Location within a mall that boasts a high traffic count. Retail space in a mall where numerous marketing and exhibiting opportunities exist. Mall that is close to main routes and easily accessible. Mall with reasonable trading hours. Superb tenant mix with stable food anchor tenants. Wide variety of stores to attract a wider group of people. Affordable rent and reasonable lease terms. Sufficient information available to make an informed decision about the retail space to let. Traffic count is still the priority element to consider when looking for retail space to let. However, it is imperative to work with detailed data provision regarding traffic in front of the mall site, not traffic counts for a site which is located a few kilometres away. The disposable-income demographic information is just as important. You want to know how much money the shoppers have left after having paid essentials, as this will give you an indication of what percentage of their income they can spend at the mall. Consider the other tenants in the mall. It doesn’t help you look at retail space to let in a shopping centre where the tenants are so diverse that it makes shopping difficult for the visitors. Stores that support each other should be clustered. In a mall situation, having more than one clothing store can be beneficial for the tenants. The same goes for having more than one bank or furniture store, restaurant, or fast-food outlet. It is essential to have a food grocer as one of the anchor tenants to ensure visitors have reason to often shop at the centre. You will notice that our malls meet all the requirements mentioned and you can thus select one based on your square metre requirements, demographic factors, and rental budget when you look for retail space to let. To give you an indication of what you can expect from our retail space to let offerings, we briefly introduce one or two malls in our portfolio. Wonderboom Junction in Pretoria Located at the foot of the Magaliesberg mountain range and on the banks of the Apies River, the mall caters to the shopping needs of families. With its solar plant on the roof, it generates 10-15% of the electricity used by the mall. It is a favourite among families with its many entertainment offerings, which include the children’s play area. Pick n Pay, Woolworths, and Dis-Chem are among the anchor tenants. From an Intercare medical facility to Ocean Basket and Cappuccino’s form part of the tenant mix. The mall has 67 tenants and has ample parking. It has a GLA of 42 706.47 m² and boasts an annual foot count of 5 701 760. Park Meadows in Kensington, Johannesburg The community shopping centre with an array of lifestyle retail offerings has a tenant mix that includes the likes of Pick n Pay, Food Lover’s Market and Dis-Chem. It is also home to a range of speciality stores, restaurants, fast-food outlets, and fashion retailers. The mall has a GLA of 29 948 m² and has 58 tenants. The annual foot count to the centre comes to 5 200 000. The Boulders Shopping Centre in Midrand If you are looking for retail space to let in an iconic shopping mall, then consider this 46 632 m² mall in the CBD of Midrand. With larger than life rock boulders in the centre of the mall, it offers a unique shopping environment for the people from Midrand. The mall has 24-hour security, features such as three hours of free uncapped Wi-Fi for shoppers, and a tenant mix that includes Pick n Pay and Mr Price among many others. With 102 tenants, the mall can cater to a wide range of shopping needs. It boasts an annual foot count of 12 500 000. The mentioned centres are only a few examples of malls in our property portfolio. With centres such as Centurion Lifestyle Centre, Centurion Mall, Blue Route Mall and Langeberg Mall part of the impressive portfolio, we offer exceptional retail space to let.

Shop for Rent in Shopping Centre
18 May 2020

Looking for a Shop for Rent? Why Tenant Mix Matters If you are looking for a shop for rent in a shopping centre, you will probably consider the key metrics that include the foot traffic count and demographics of the shoppers. You know the importance of stable anchor and secondary anchor tenants. Then there is the matter of location – not only of the shop for rent in the shopping centre, but the location of the mall too. With all our shopping centres already meeting requirements such as strategic location to main routes and ease of accessibility, high foot count and stable anchor tenants, you will not have any trouble in finding a shop for rent in a shopping centre that ticks all the boxes. What About Tenant Mix? A well-managed property portfolio includes a blend of tenants that support each other. An incorrect tenant mix spells failure for the mall because the customers will not be able to get everything they need in just one visit. As such, the centre needs the glue tenants, which are those tenants that bring customers back on a regular basis. Without such tenants in the mix, the customers may visit only once in a while. Without enough foot traffic, the stores suffer and at the end of the day, the mall has a high rate of tenant turnover. If the occupancy rate drops below a certain level, the foot count becomes less, and the tenants lose more income. A mall without a food store can succeed but then needs another major traffic generator. People purchase groceries regularly. This is what brings them back to the centre. Restaurants, fast-food outlets, and snack stores provide for quick conveniences and entertainment value. Business facilities such as communication stores, stationery shops, banks, security providers, exchanges, travel agencies and the likes bring in the business clients and cater to the occasional essentials for other patrons. Clothing stores bring in female shoppers. If the stores cater to family clothing, then children can be expected to come along to the mall. Also consider the importance of retail stores for rent that support each other in the particular shopping centre. If the mall is located close to a school, it may include a grocery anchor tenant, stationery store if the grocery store doesn’t sell stationery, perhaps an art supply provider, fast-food outlets, dry cleaner, shoe repair store, clothing retailers, nail bar, hair salon and perhaps a barbershop, post office, bakery, and a bank. What is important is that the tenant mix should work for the particular demographics of the mall. How We Help You to Make an Informed Decision Regarding Space for Rent You will find that we provide rate cards and shopper profiles for the retail centres in our property portfolio. This makes it possible to get an overview of the target audience, foot count, parking bays, number of tenants, anchor tenants, media facilities and exhibition potential. We understand the importance of a balanced tenant mix to ensure the success of our tenants. That is also the reason why our malls have high occupancy rates. However, from time to time, retail space becomes available. With it in mind, discuss your retail space for rent needs with our brokers and centre management or consultants. They can notify you when a shop for rent opportunity opens up in the mall of your choice. What You Can Expect When Looking for a Shop for Rent in One of Our Malls An example of what you can expect from our centres is the Blue Route Mall in Cape Town. It is located in Tokai and offers breathtaking views of the surrounds from many areas in the mall. The mall is located only ten minutes from Claremont and 20 minutes from the CBD. With a mix of 120 tenants, it caters to every type of shopping requirement. The mall is about convenience, quality, and diversity. Blue Route Mall has a GLA of 56 143 m² of shopping convenience. It has an annual foot count of 8 188 000. Checkers and Woolworths are the two grocery and food anchor tenants. The mall also has a Ster-Kinekor as an anchor for entertainment, while The Foschini Group is one of the clothing anchor tenants.

Shop to Let
14 May 2020

Shop to Let Opportunities in Cities Across South Africa Whether you search for a shop to let in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Mossel Bay or Pretoria, our portfolio of retail centres does not disappoint. We briefly share information about three of the retail centres to give you a better idea of the types of shopping centres that form part of our portfolio. But first, three factors that should be considered when you look for a retail shop to let:  Foot traffic Accessibility Co-tenants Foot Traffic Perhaps the most important factor to consider when looking for shop to let opportunities is the traffic count of the mall. It refers to how many people pass the store in a given day, month, or year. The traffic count thus provides you with an estimate of the number of people that may buy from your store. You will notice that each of the malls in our portfolio has a high foot traffic count. This is important as it also means that the potential income-generating capacity is high if you make use of any of our shop to let offerings. Accessibility Where is the mall located? It matters because people tend to shop at easily accessible shopping centres. In this regard, factors such as proximity to main routes, highways and residential areas must be considered. How many parking bays are offered? Is there free or paid parking? How many entrances does the mall have and what are the trading hours? Do commuters pass the centre on route to work or home? Is the centre close to a school, medical centre, or office parks? Once again, our malls meet the accessibility requirement with:  Superb locations Ample parking space Good security Wheelchair-friendly facilities Family-friendly facilities Reasonable trading hours Proximity to main routes, public transport hubs or routes and residential areas Accessible entrance and exit points Co-Tenants The other tenants in the centre also attract foot traffic from which your store can benefit. It thus makes sense to consider shop to let opportunities in malls with high annual traffic and top brands among their anchor tenants. The number of tenants also affects the traffic to the centre. Having a balanced mix of tenants further benefits the retailers. You will find that our shop to let opportunities are in malls with:  High foot traffic Stable anchor tenants Balanced mix of tenants Top brands among the anchor tenants Fair number of tenants to attract traffic Below is the introduction to some of our malls where shop to let opportunities become available from time to time. Goldfields Mall in Welkom, Free State Located in the Welkom CBD, the Goldfields Mall shopping mall attracts visitors from Welkom residential areas, Hoopstad, Virginia, Hennenman, Bultfontein, and Kroonstad. The retail centre is the hub for social activities in the region. With its 37 789 m² retail space, it provides for a convenient and attractive town square feeling. National retailers with the likes of Checkers, Woolworths, and Dis-Chem are among the anchor tenants. The tenant mix includes fashion stores, luggage product providers, mobile communication service providers, banks, and eateries. It offers something for everyone. Ample parking space is available. It has 93 tenants, giving visitors a wide variety and thus sufficient reason to visit the mall on a more regular basis. The Mall @ Scottsville in Pietermaritzburg, KZN If you want a shop to let in KZN, consider the amazing features of this mall located in the heart of the city. It is on Alan Paton Drive, which is a busy thoroughfare. The mall has good security and offers a safe shopping environment. Many families frequent the mall with its superb range of offerings that include from eateries to beauty salons, banking facilities and more. The mall has an annual foot count of 4 430 093. It has 48 tenants among which Checkers and Food Lover’s Market count as anchor tenants. Hazeldean Square, Silver Lakes in Pretoria, Gauteng The mall with its open-air character is located in the up-market area of Silver Lakes. It has 36 tenants with Pick n Pay and Woolworths Foods as anchor tenants. Retailers such as stationers, eateries, car wash facilities, vehicle repair centres, beauty salons, and medical facilities provide for shopping convenience at its best. Ample parking space, exceptionally easy access from main routes and proximity to residential areas are among the reasons for the high annual foot count of 2 880 000. The mentioned centres are only three of our malls in South Africa.

But before we take a closer look at Brackengate 2, let’s take a small detour to discuss Brackenfell first. Why Brackenfell Is Perfect for Industrial Properties Brackenfell is a suburb in the northern parts of Cape Town. It is on the outskirts of the city, en route to the Cape Winelands. The suburb falls under the municipality of the City of Cape Town and it is known for its many schools, malls, medical facilities, sports facilities, large residential area, and many industrial properties. But what makes Brackenfell superb as a location for industrial properties? Apart from the area being close to the N1, Old Paarl Road, and the R300 highway, it offers a residential component. This means employees can live near their workplaces. The nearby schools make it possible for employees to work close to where their children are at school and being close to shopping centres benefits employees and firms alike. For employees, it means that they enjoy the convenience of shopping before or after work, lunch-hour visits to malls, and being close to places where they can grab something to eat. For businesses, the close proximity to shopping malls in Brackenfell means their logistics, warehouse operations, or product-distribution centres can be near many of their clients. Sports facilities in the vicinity of these industrial properties make it possible for employees to participate in team sports or simply keep fit and healthy – healthier bodies also mean healthier minds. Brackenfell is adjacent to Kraaifontein on its eastern side, the popular suburb of Durbanville to the north, the well-known and established Bellville on its western flank, and Kuils River in the southern direction. As such, the suburb is surrounded by residential areas from where employees can have a short commute to their places of work at any of the industrial properties situated in Brackenfell. Introduction to Brackengate 2 Brackengate 2 is one of our flagship industrial properties. It is one of our latest developments and has been designed with several sustainability features already in place. The property is near Bottelary Road (M23) that connects it with the Stellenbosch area and, in turn, also leading to the Swartland region and its towns such as Malmesbury, Porterville, and Piketberg. The 21 000-m2 development also contains a large DIY retail lifestyle section that caters to the shopping needs of earners in the upper-income brackets. Its proximity to the N1 highway only 6 km away is also important since the highway connects Cape Town with the inland regions of South Africa. This is excellent news for product distributors and importers. Fruit & Veg and Checkers have already realised the potential that the strategic address of Brackengate 2 offers and they have set up distribution centres at this Brackenfell property. The Brackengate 2 development offers superb security and easy accessibility to the main roads leading to the Cape Town harbour, Cape Town International Airport, and the central business district of the city. The development is spacious and has ample turning space for large trucks. This helps to reduce congestion and possible delays by ensuring that trucks can easily manoeuvre on the property. True to our commitment to develop functional spaces that meet tenants’ requirements, we offer customisation of our properties to meet our clients’ needs. This unique development in Brackenfell is modern with lush and well-planned gardens. As such, a tranquil ambience is provided. The development, furthermore, incorporates a range of energy-efficient technologies, further boosting its profile as one of the most sustainable industrial properties in Brackenfell. The large pause areas provide employees with the ideal spaces for lunch-hour breaks. The green spaces also help to buffer the property from traffic noise. Fast Internet connectivity and digital communication are possible for tenants, as a sophisticated fibre infrastructure is in place. Security includes 24/7 gated access control, electric perimeter fencing, and camera monitoring. When it comes to the ideal suburb for industrial properties, Brackenfell ticks all the right boxes.

Centurion Retail Properties
27 March 2020

Why Centurion Mall is One of the Best Retail Properties in Gauteng Centurion’s location so close to Pretoria is one of the reasons why many people from Jacaranda City shop at Centurion Mall. As one of the largest retail properties in Gauteng, the mall has an extraordinary range of shops, giving visitors to the mall the ultimate shopping experience in Gauteng. Few retail properties can boast the floor space of this mall; in fact, Centurion Mall has 120 000 m2 of shopping excellence. With over 260 stores forming part of the tenant mix, the shopping centre with its mix of open-air and covered areas offers a unique and exceptionally inviting shopping environment. The centre also boasts a setting on the well-known Centurion Lake with several office buildings and blocks located within walking distance or a short drive from the mall. When it comes to the shopper profile, shoppers are generally younger than at other retail properties in Gauteng. The shoppers are most likely to be parents of children that are still at school. Many of them fall in the bracket of single-parent shoppers. Dependent young adults aged younger than 34 and who still live with their parents make up 15% of the shopper total. These shoppers typically do not have children. Shoppers in their nest-building years form about 5% of the shopper total. About 19,9% of the shoppers are Afrikaans speaking, compared to the 15,8% English speaking shoppers. Females make up the majority of shoppers at 51%. The average number of people per household is 3,2 and they have an average of two vehicles per household. If you are thus looking for one of the Gauteng retail properties that cater to the middle- and upper-income earners, Centurion Mall should be high on your priority list. Sales Promotions Due to the higher income levels of the mall’s shoppers, they are less likely to shop with price in mind. A high percentage of its shoppers notice the in-mall advertisements. When it thus comes to retail properties that attract a younger, more affluent, and somewhat less price-focused shopper, Centurion Mall is a prime example. In-store advertisements are one of the most effective advertising media in the mall, as no less than 81,3% of shoppers say that they notice these ads. In-Store Ads On-the-shelf, in-store ads are noticed by 46,3% of the shoppers while aisle-end advertising is noticed by 30,5% of shoppers. Floor advertising attracts the attention of 30,5% of the mall’s shoppers. Trolley advertising is noticed by 29,7% of shoppers and poster advertising by 38,7%. Therefore, it should be abundantly clear that tenants have several advertising vehicles to choose from to bring their promotions and brands to the attention of shoppers – and that many of these work extremely well. As such, they can make use of the in-mall promotion possibilities in addition to their in-store sales promotions. Centurion Mall is one of the retail properties in our portfolio that includes several restaurants and entertainment options and these certainly also draw in many of its visitors. As previously mentioned, the shoppers at this mall tend to be less likely to strictly budget for their shopping. In addition, they have high expectations in terms of good service at restaurants. These shoppers are likely to buy the household brands that are preferred by their domestic workers. The patrons of this mall also often use the Internet and they listen mostly to radio stations such as Metro FM and Radio Jacaranda. The Internet is used several times a day by 11,4% of the mall visitors while 9% of shoppers use it at least once a day. Tenant Mix With over 260 stores offered, visitors have ample reason to regularly shop at the mall. As with our other retail properties, this mall has well-known anchor tenants that ensure regular and large numbers of visitors.
