ABN – Africa’s largest mall, the “Mall of Africa”, is set to open in April 2016 in Gauteng, South Africa.
The mall covers 485,000 square metres of land with the retail area covering 131,000 square metres.
It will have four courts with Africa-inspired design features to reflect the continent’s different climatic zones.
The mall will be based in the Waterfall City multi-purpose precinct in Midrand.
MDS architect Tia Kanakakis said: “The mall’s design also incorporates many unique elements, including very high shop fronts, wide passages and an undulating roof feature in the centre with specialist animated LED lighting and a large public space with restaurants known as the Town Square.”
Woolworths, Truworths, Checkers, Ster-Kinekor and Game have already acquired space in the mall.
