Peninsula Mall - Lekki





Name: Peninsula Mall
City: Lagos
Use: Retail
Status: Proposed (Opening November 2015)
Anchors: Game & Shoprite
Size: 22,000 GLA
Official Website


Information

The Peninsula Mall is situated on the intersection of the Lekki-Epe Expressway and Springville road, the latter being one of the key north-south routes planned for the development of the Lekki peninsula. Springville road will serve a number of new estates just south of The Peninsula Mall, which will be the primary retail node for the area. The mall is situated near the Pan Atlantic University, Lagos Business School and Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Estate.

Some 40 km east of The Peninsula Mall site is the start of the Lekki free Trade Zone which will soon include a new port.

With its modern infrastructure and facilities, The Peninsula Mall is perfectly situated to meet the needs of the ever increasing community residing in Lekki. With Shoprite and Game signed-up as anchors, interest from potential tenants have been significant.

It's probably because Walmart have a majority stake in Massmart (Who own Game)

So Game is "Walmart's presence"

It makes better economic sense to do it this way. Because Shopping Centres do not work based off the size of the city. They work based off catchment areas.

And when a Shopping Centre wants to go around 60,000 SQM for example - you need to have that level of transport in place to mobilize and effectively increase the catchments. but a large one really doesn't mean anything. They don't really mean anything as far as consumerism goes.

Large malls are what you call destination malls. They are good for people that want to go out. People that hang around the mall all day etc, go on dates etc. But in terms of what you need - functionality, they don't mean anything.

That is why they call them Regional Malls or Super Regional Malls. They are just about the experience. Otherwise it would make no sense to have them.

In a place like Brisbane it goes beyond that, because in Brisbane there is a lot of sprawl - so having compact facilities helps to create principal activity centres outside of the city and control sprawl a little. but Lagos is a dense city as far as I am concerned. It is very compact.

So apart from the lack of the experience, they are not needed. with Nigerians obsessing over London, UAE etc...maybe we do need to rival these places with the experience - but it will be a gradual and calculated process.

Tinapa was supposed to have 80,0000 SQM....but how much of it is active? 8,000? It will happen eventually, but transport will play a key role.

True, Lagos has need of a great mall of more of 50.000m² of GLA.

But me I love a lot the small malls. :)

The best place to put one would be Eko Atlantic City.

Eko Atlantic City is actually not isolated....It is right next to the major Business Districts that exist and there will be a lot of purchasing power there. There will also be trams, ferries and what not.

They have earmarked 40,000 sqm but I think they could go bigger.

Most of our Malls serve as recreation facilities. Gone are the days there were affordable cinemas in every town and zoos and parks.Even Enugu zoo has now been turned to a housing estate and U.I zoo is grossly underfuned.

Hitherto, a couple or family that wants to go out will just head for an eatery or fast food which is the a very poor replacement for an outing destination. However, these malls can serve as a center of attraction where we have cinemas,casino,stores, banks, atm, ample space for littles shows and exhibition plus a large parking space which encourages families and people to come in a group.

I think more Malls will be needed in Lagos.But they most have a large enough parking space which is why Palms was a success right from day one.A large car park space encourages people to visit the Mall with friends and family and spend enough time there too.
Its an kind of alternative recreation center for Lagosian apart from the shoping thats done there.

It should be noted that some of the Malls in Nigeria are actually built with future expansion in mind, such as the Palms Mall.
