Gauteng Properties You May Have Missed in Your Search for Retail Space


Gauteng has no shortage of superb retail properties of which quite a few form part of our portfolio. We proudly introduce three sometimes-overlooked jewels in our extensive portfolio of Gauteng retail properties.


Wonderboom Junction in Pretoria


Located at the corner of Lavender and Lavender West roads, this is one of the retail properties in Gauteng that boasts stunning surroundings. With the Magaliesberg mountain range and Apies River right alongside, it boasts an idyllic setting. This modern shopping centre has an open-air design that adds to its relaxed ambience. With its address in the warmest part of Pretoria, the mall is perfectly located to maximise on solar power. It has a 7000 m2 solar rooftop plant – the largest one of its kind in South Africa. This solar plant meets up to 15% of the shopping centre’s power requirements. As such, Wonderboom Junction is also one of our many sustainable properties in the province.


The centre is also amongst our most family-friendly and best-supported Gauteng retail centres. The children’s play area adds to the convenience of the mall. This play area is next to a restaurant where parents can take a well-deserved break after a few hours of shopping. It is, of course, also popular for kiddies’ parties. With this child-friendly character, the mall attracts many families, a fact worth remembering if you want to rent retail space to cater to a family or children target audience.


The convenient location of the mall adds to its popularity as a weekend shopping destination. Among its anchor tenants are brands such as Pick n Pay, Dis-Chem, Edgars, and Woolworths. Several popular eateries form part of the tenant mix, including Mugg & Bean, Ocean Basket, Barcelos, and Baobab. With the Intercare medical facility also part of the mix, many visitors to the medical centre use the time to perform a few shopping duties. It has an annual foot count of 5 701 760. The tenant mix consists of no fewer than 67 shops and its gross lettable area (GLA) is 42 706,47 m2. Ample parking space is available. Tenants also have several marketing and advertising options and the mall has a website, social-media presence, and a marketing team.


Maponya Mall in Soweto


Located 18 km southwest of the Johannesburg CBD in the thriving city of Soweto, this modern shopping centre opened its doors in 2007. It provides a world-class shopping experience. Consisting of 70 000 m2 of shopping excellence, it is another one of our Gauteng properties that offers superb retail spaces. Many national brands and numerous local businesses are represented in the mall. With its central location at 2127 Chris Hani Road, it caters to a complex target audience that includes everyone from blue-collar workers to high-income earners. The mall has 184 tenants with Pick n Pay, Woolworths, and Edgars among the anchor tenants that attract large numbers of visitors to the mall. The shopping centre has an annual foot count of 12 500 000.


Kyalami Corner in Kyalami, Johannesburg


From Pretoria and Soweto to the northern parts of Johannesburg, we offer an extensive range of Gauteng retail properties and Kyalami Corner is one of our newest retail properties. The mall opened its doors in the first half of 2017 to cater to the shopping and entertainment needs of residents from the Kyalami suburb. Located at the corner of Main Road (M71) and the R55, it boasts a central address in Gauteng. The mall has a distinctly elegant and trendy look and feel. Several of the design elements complement the equestrian nature of its surroundings. With flagship Checkers and Woolworths Food stores among the anchor tenants, as well as a Virgin Active health club, it has the ability to generate exceptional foot traffic. The fine selection of restaurants and fast-food outlets and the varied range of retailers make this a popular shopping destination. The mall has a GLA of 27 968 m2, no fewer than 82 tenants, and an impressive annual foot count of 3 285 948. A Jacksons Real Food Market and Clicks also form part of the anchor tenants.
