Mall of Africa named winning retail development at Sapoa Excellence Awards


Mall of Africa scoops an award at the South African Property Owners Association Excellence Awards.

Mall of Africa was named the winning retail development at the South African Property Owners Association (Sapoa) Excellence Awards held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on 22 June.

The awards strive to acknowledge and reward the best property developments South Africa has to offer, celebrating exceptional design quality, green building and originality.

With a with a total retail area of 131 000m², the mall has set a new benchmark for shopping centres on the continent and was developed by Atterbury Property Developments company.

“Winning these awards from Sapoa is indeed a great honour and is a testament to the exceptional quality of the team we have built here at Atterbury and the distinctly successful developments we deliver,” said managing director of Atterbury Property Developments, James Ehlers.

The mall boasts more than 300 stores, a wide variety of restaurants, entertainment and services, all neatly packaged into the largest single-phase shopping mall the country has ever seen. It also features a wonderful outdoor park, complete with an amphitheatre, children’s play area, an interactive musical water fountain, and a vibrant town square, all with beautifully landscaped surroundings.

Director of retail for the company Cobus van Heerden said they have created an unrivalled shopping experience, one that they believe is truly world-class. “We are thrilled that Sapoa has recognised its excellence. A development of this sheer size requires extraordinary levels of expertise, experience and skill,” he added.

The company also scooped the industrial development award for the third year running for its development of the new Amrod head office situated in Waterfall City.

This is the third year in a row that the company has won the industrial development category at the Sapoa awards. Last year, its development for Hilti at Waterfall Logistics Precinct was named the winner and in 2015, won the category with its industrial development for Westcon at Waterfall.

“We are suitably proud of what we have achieved with these developments and this recognition we have received from Sapoa only serves to make us prouder. These awards highlight our achievements so far, and it will only drive us to work harder and push further in what we can achieve in future,” concluded Ehlers.
