Neels Fourie of LP Architects who designed the mall, explains the vision behind it: “The mall is bringing the retail sector closer to the community, making it more accessible to the people. Our vision was to create something powerful.” Cole Briel, GEZE Southern Africa’s General Inland Manager, concurs, “The mall is stimulating new consumerism. It’s meeting the need of a growing community and is a strong new focal point of Mamelodi.”
