Mall@Carival Phase 2 Development

POSTED: Wednesday, 20th October 2010

The long time talked about the extension to Mall@Carnival finally became a reality when construction began in January 2010 to the excitement of the existing tenants and stakeholders. The additional development shall provide new national and independent retailers with wonderful opportunities to do business in an already successful centre.


The Mall@Carnival, Brakpan's very own up market Regional Shopping Centre of approximately 30 000 m² which opened in October 2005 in Dalpark, Brakpan, is now adding 42 000m2 of new shops and 2 500 new parking bays in its Phase 2 expansion, bringing the Mall@Carnival to 72 000m2.

The Mall's location at the intersection of Airport and Heidelberg Roads and the N17 and R23 highways, which are the main "arteries" through Brakpan and the East Rand makes it highly visible and accessible, and strategically situated to service Brakpan, Springs, Heidelberg, Nigel, Benoni, Boksburg, and the surrounding townships. This intersection is used by ± 50 000 vehicles per 24-hour period, and approximately 80% of residents in the trade area use Airport, Heidelberg Roads or the N17 as a daily traffic route.

Existing anchor tenants include Pick ‘n Pay (5,000m2), Edgars (2,500m2), Woolworths (2,800m2) as well as other national retailers such as Truworths, Markhams, Mr Price, Clicks, Ackermans, to name a few. Part of the mall is also developed as a Retail Mart including tenants such as KFC, Steers, Blockbusters Video, Romans Pizza, and Midas.  

Due to the success of Mall@Carnival a number of requests have been received from current and new national retailers to increase their floor area as well as opening new facilities in the mall. Pick ‘n Pay Supermarket has already expanded its floor space by 17.5% in 2008.

In view of this, Phase 2 construction commenced in January 2010 to the South side of the centre, where we are adding another ± 42 000 m2 on a double level which will link up with the existing mall, and will include another 4 new anchor tenants, including Checkers Hyper (8 500m2) , Game (5 000m2) , Dis-Chem (1 600m2), and Ster Kinekor (2 800m2), as well as other national retailers, bringing the Mall@Carnival to ± 72 000m2 and large Regional Centre status. We are also in the process of negotiating to add a 3 000m2 Virgin Active Gym on the Phase 2. The Phase 2 Extension is on track to open in August 2011.

Our aim as Mall@Carnival Management is to always ensure that the Mall remains competitive and current in order to satisfy our customers, protect our catchment area, and grow our shopper loyalty resulting in an improved shopping experience for the customers and increased turnovers for the tenants. In order to do this, we are constantly adjusting and increasing our tenant mix according to customer and economic demand.

We feel that this Phase 2 expansion will help us achieve a good balance between retail, services and entertainment and satisfy customer demand and create a better shopping experience for all.
