Vryburg is an agricultural and industrial hub in the west of the North West Province. It is the seat of the Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati District Municipality of the Naledi Local Municipality.
The development is located on a prime site on the N18 adjacent to the CBD, opposite the Vryburg sports grounds with access at the major intersection of the N14 and N18.
The single-level mall is designed by Leon Jacobs Architects, and its construction is being led by the main contractor NJW. The centre’s development will result in improvements to the surrounding roads as well as all bulk services. It will have a solar photovoltaic (PV) plant that produces clean, green energy and help ensure that it can continue trading during load shedding. Mompati Mall will also offer free Wi-Fi for shoppers.
Mompati Mall is scheduled to opening in October 2023.
