Abland Unveils Three Exciting Shopping Malls in Gauteng


In the face of economic challenges and uncertainty in the South African construction and development sector, property developer Abland is making significant strides in bolstering the country’s retail landscape with three new shopping malls set to grace Gauteng. These ambitious projects come as a testament to Abland’s commitment to providing top-notch retail experiences in the region.

Eyethu Shopping Centre, Soweto: Ready to Open its Doors

The first on the list is the eagerly anticipated Eyethu Shopping Centre in Soweto, situated in the heart of Gauteng. This impressive retail haven is set to open its doors on Saturday, 28th October, marking a significant milestone for Abland.

With a sprawling space of 10,000 square meters, the Eyethu Shopping Centre promises to cater to a wide array of retail preferences, making it a one-stop destination for shoppers. Boasting an eclectic mix of tenants and retailers, this vibrant space is poised to offer a shopping experience like no other.

Leopard’s Rest Shopping Centre, Alberton: A Retail Giant in the Making

Leopard’s Rest Shopping Centre in Alberton is another remarkable project by Abland that’s garnering much attention. Situated at the corner of JG Strydom and Kliprivier Drive, this shopping haven spans a generous 8,500 square meters and is expected to be completed in October 2024.

What makes this development particularly exciting is the presence of South Africa’s largest retailer, Shoprite, as one of its anchor tenants. Additionally, a stellar lineup of retailers will call this shopping center home. From PEP and Pick n Pay Clothing to Clicks and FNB, shoppers will have access to an impressive range of products and services.

Makhethani Crossing, Soshanguve: A Convenience Hub

Abland’s commitment to providing convenient retail options is evident in the upcoming Makhethani Crossing in Soshanguve. Despite having grander plans for the 24,000 square meter Mopane View Retail Mall in Soshanguve, which is set to be located 30 kilometers north of Pretoria, the developer is also venturing into smaller convenience centers.

Makhethani Crossing, with a footprint of 4,400 square meters, is set to become a go-to destination for shoppers looking for a quick and easy retail experience. Once again, Shoprite will be a prominent feature, offering a diverse range of products. In addition to Shoprite, shoppers can expect to find retailers like PEP, Hungry Lion, Debonairs, and Clicks among others.

Lion Pride Shopping Centre, Fourways: Where Shopping Meets Leisure

In the bustling area of Fourways, Johannesburg North, Abland is crafting the Lion Pride Shopping Centre. This 8,000 square meter shopping haven aims to redefine the shopping experience by blending retail with leisure. One of its standout features is a Gin Bar & Food Court, which promises to be the main social hub within the mall.

Checkers and Checkers LiquorShop are set to be among the flagship tenants in this exciting development. Alongside them, PEP Home, Clicks, Milady’s, and Steers will offer a wide variety of shopping and dining options to cater to the diverse needs of consumers.

As South Africa continues to navigate economic challenges, Abland’s commitment to enhancing the retail sector with these three impressive shopping centers is a testament to the resilience and growth potential of the nation’s retail industry.The face of shopping in Gauteng is about to change, offering more variety, convenience, and leisure for shoppers from all walks of life.
