McCormick Property Development has broken ground on their 71st development, Mamelodi Square, in early September.
Developed in partnership with Putprop Limited, Mamelodi Square will be a single level, enclosed mall spanning over 16 000m2.
Located directly off the main arterial of Tsamaya Road in Mamelodi, Gauteng, the site was previously utilised as a bus depot for PUTCO. Mamelodi Square will maximise the location within the heart of Mamelodi’s more established and wealthy suburbs to provide convenient and essential retail to the surrounding community.
Confirmed tenants to date include Shoprite, Capitec Bank, KFC, Power Fashion, and the Pepkor Group.
MD of McCormick Property Development, Jason McCormick, is proud to be providing retail convenience while creating employment opportunities. It is anticipated that the development will create approximately 420 local labour positions during construction with an anticipated 950 permanent positions created once the centre is open for trade.
“One of our primary objectives as developers has always been ‘community first’ and Mamelodi Square is no different,” explains Jason. “Through the creation of employment opportunities and the upskilling of local contractors and entrepreneurs, we are confident that Mamelodi Square will contribute to improving the livelihoods of the local communities. In this way we will be a step closer to our goal of building a better and brighter future for the youth while staying true to our desire to provide convenient and accessible retail to all.”
Construction of the Mall is anticipated to take approximately 15 months with an anticipated opening date in late 2022.
