Developers of the world-class Springs Mall at Blue Crane Eco Park has announced the R950 million regional mall will officially open to the public on Thursday, 16 March 2017.

When the 48,000sqm Springs Mall opens next year, it will become the only major mall in Springs, Ekurhuleni, in the east of Gauteng.

The mall is a joint venture between Blue Crane Eco Mall (Pty) Ltd, leading shopping centre developers and leasing specialists Flanagan & Gerard Property Development & Investment, JSE-listed retail focused REIT Vukile Property Fund and Murinda Investments, which is part of the Giuricich Bros Group.

“For many years, the vision of the Springs-based D’Arrigo family to develop a major mall for Springs seemed an impossibility. In less than six months, it will become a reality,” says Paul Gerard of Flanagan & Gerard Property Development & Investment.

“What’s more, Springs Mall has become a shared vision with retailers and the community also invested in the mall, and we are all very excited for its public launch,” he adds.

In anticipation of its opening, retailers have clamored for trading area and the iconic mall is already almost full, with some 96% of retail space let.

Anchor tenants at Springs Mall include popular leading national retailers Woolworths, Checkers, Pick n Pay and Edgars.

These retailing giants are supported by a comprehensive line-up of exciting retail brands, concepts, and leisure options – both big names and one-off treasures – with plenty to please everyone.

Destined to become a dominant mall in the region, the new Springs Mall benefits from excellent access off the N17 highway and Wit and Jan Smuts Roads. In addition, as part of the mall’s development, its owners have also invested in major improvements to the roads around the mall, which will benefit all road users.

Gerard reports that, in addition to this new infrastructure, with the opening of Springs Mall, people will not only have a top-notch new venue in which to fulfill their shopping needs, but also a vibrant place to meet, unwind and be entertained.

“We can’t wait for Springs Mall to open on 16 March 2017, and welcome the people of Springs and their neighbours to their very own premium shopping experience,” says Gerard.
