Don’t Miss Out on the Retail Space to Let in Johannesburg’s Popular Malls

Published: 20 November 2020

A shopping centre’s location, annual foot count, tenant mix, and marketing opportunities are important factors to consider when reviewing the retail space to let opportunities in Johannesburg.


As a leading property group with an extensive portfolio of shopping centres throughout Gauteng, we also have several exceptional malls in the Greater Johannesburg region, all meeting the essential requirements. If you are looking for retail space to let in Johannesburg, look no further than the malls we introduce below.


Bryanston Shopping Centre


Located in the northern parts of Johannesburg, Bryanston Shopping Centre also boasts an address close to Gallagher Estate (Coca Cola Dome) in North Riding – one of the largest convention and exhibition centres in the country. The proximity to the convention centre also means the mall can benefit from the visitor traffic from people who visit the convention centre.


The Bryanston Shopping Centre attracts visitors from North Riding, Bryanston, Kensington B, and Morningside. With many colleges, schools and corporate parks located within the greater Bryanston area, the mall benefits from a wide range of shoppers. When it comes to retail space to let in a well-established and popular mall, then this shopping centre is perfect. It first opened its doors to shoppers in the late sixties and has ever since been a favourite shopping destination for residents in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg.


It was originally developed as a community shopping mall to cater to the lifestyle requirements of the residents of Bryanston. We recently renovated it to ensure relevance to the discerning tastes and style preferences of the contemporary shoppers from Bryanston and adjacent suburbs.


With a tenant total of more than 50, including large retail groups such as Woolworths Food and Checkers, it has attraction and staying power, proven by it being a popular shopping destination for over five decades. The tenant mix includes a range of fast-food outlets, popular eateries, some of the best restaurants in the northern parts of Johannesburg, and an organic whole-foods retailer.


Whether for everyday conveniences or the monthly grocery needs, shoppers frequent the mall throughout the month. As far as shop space to let in Johannesburg is concerned, this retail centre meets every requirement. It offers ample parking space, neat ablutions, disabled-friendly features, security, variety, and easy navigation. The mall with its GLA of 13 800 m² has an average annual foot count of 2 100 000.


Maponya Mall in the Southern Part of Johannesburg


In the opposite direction, to the south of Johannesburg in Klipspruit, retail space to let opportunities become available from time to time in the modern Maponya Mall. Located in Soweto, the shopping centre consisting of 70 000 m² of retail space, has been noted as the “soul of Soweto” as it caters to the lifestyle and essential services needs of people from all income groups in Soweto.


The mall has a vibrant feel to it and with its modern interior, it has been a landmark retail centre in Soweto since 2007. One of the reasons for its popularity with shoppers is the convenient location on Chris Hani Road, which makes it exceptionally accessible. Another reason for its popularity is the wide range of stores, meeting all the shopping needs of the visitors.


SASSA, Home Affairs, the post office, and other essential services are also offered at the mall. These services attract many visitors. Besides these, the availability of transport on its doorstep makes it easy for people from all over Soweto to get to and from the shopping centre. Electronics, banking services, grocery stores, fashion retailers, and entertainment facilities add to its popularity. If you are looking for retail space to let in Johannesburg in a high foot-traffic mall, then Maponya Mall meets and exceeds the requirement.


The balanced tenant mix includes anchors like Pick n Pay and Woolworths, ensuring a high annual foot count of 12 500 000.
