Where to Rent a Store in the Western Cape

Published: 28 October 2020

As with our extensive retail centre offering in Gauteng, our range of shopping centres in the Western Cape impresses by any standard. If you’re looking to rent a store in the Western Cape, whether in Mossel Bay or Cape Town, Redefine’s mall portfolio offers much sought-after retail space.


Blue Route Mall in Tokai


Located on 16 Tokai Road, Blue Route Mall is an iconic retail landmark in Cape Town. It offers a balanced mix of tenants. With 120 stores, customers are spoiled for choice. The mall is only a ten-minute drive from Claremont, making it exceptionally accessible for the residents of the affluent Claremont suburb. A stylish interior, large windows and breathtaking views of the surrounds, in combination with a layout that facilitates easy navigation, are more reasons for the mall’s popularity as a shopping destination.


For those wanting to rent a store in a prime retail location, one could hardly ask for more than the offerings of Blue Route Mall. It is extremely popular with residents from the Southern Suburbs, making it the perfect centre in which to rent a store if your product offering caters to the discerning tastes of the Southern Suburbs’ residents.


The shopping centre has two floors packed with exciting retail offerings. It’s this mix of tenants that helps to ensure high foot traffic throughout the year. The centre ticks all the right boxes, whether for available parking, range of retail stores, ambience, architecture, foot count, or marketing opportunities.


It has a GLA of 56 143 m² of shopping excellence. Well-known brands are among the anchor tenants, including Checkers, Foschini Group, Woolworths and Ster-Kinekor. It has an annual foot count average of 8 188 000 – a number that’s testimony to its prominence as a shopping destination in Cape Town.


Kenilworth Centre


If you want to rent a store in one of the most easily recognisable malls in Cape Town, consider renting a store in Kenilworth Centre. The mall is located at the corner of Chichester and Garfield Roads, making it exceptionally accessible.


The centre is another shopping destination in our portfolio catering to the shopping needs of residents from Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs. It’s also one of the best-established malls in the city. We have recently refurbished it to ensure it stays relevant to the discerning tastes of its affluent and always fashionable customers. The mall covers 6 246 269 m² and offers no fewer than 150+ stores.


The tenant mix includes specialty stores such as Fragrance Boutique and King Cake, and a range of restaurants and familiar brands such as Pick n Pay, Virgin Active Game, Woolworths, and Checkers. With an impressive 10 349 793 annual foot count, it’s the centre where you should rent a store if high foot traffic is essential.


Riverside Mall


If you want to rent a store in a residential convenience centre, then Riverside Mall at the corner of Main and Belmont Roads in Rondebosch is the answer. With the University of Cape Town just around the corner, it receives high foot traffic from students and lecturers alike. We recently renovated the mall, with renovations amounting to R16 million, giving the centre a modern and elegant feel. The renovations also include the upgrading of ablutions to include disabled and baby changing facilities.


The mall includes stores such as a travel agency, pharmacy, car rental service, bakery and more. With anchor tenants like Standard Bank, Checkers, ABSA and the Post Office, regular traffic is ensured throughout the week.


Langeberg Mall


If you want to rent a store in the Garden Route, then you will love the setting of Langeberg Mall. It is set between the Voorbaai area in Mossel Bay and Hartenbos. The mall is highly accessible, being located just off the N2 highway and on the main road between Mossel Bay Central and Hartenbos. It is adjacent to the Nestle factory, with the main provincial and national bus stop almost on its doorstep.


The mall boasts an open-air ambience, with only certain sections being under roof. It attracts traffic throughout the week, but even more so over weekends and, most especially, long weekends. The centre has extremely high foot traffic during the December holiday season when the Garden Route receives a steady flow of holidaymakers from the inland areas of South Africa.


In Conclusion


Whether you want to rent a store close to the CBD of Cape Town, in Rondebosch near students or in the popular Mossel Bay region, Redefine’s malls offer excellent features.
