Major facelift for Tshwane's Menlyn mall
TUESDAY SEP 02, 2014

There is a lot of dust around the Menlyn Park Shopping Centre, but when it settles in 2016, the capital will have one of the largest malls in the southern hemisphere.


An artist's impression of a part of the refurbished centre.

The R2 billion refurbishment of the centre started in April, and once complete, in November 2016, will add about 50 000m2 to the centre and 200 new shops.

This will bring to 500 the number of shops in the centre and will cover an area of 170 000m2.


The centre is co-owned by Pareto Limited and Old Mutual Life Assurance Company.

The expansion of Menlyn will be a two-phase project, which is being led by retailer demand.

While there will be more shops offering a selection of local and international brands, shopper flows are also being simplified, making it easier to navigate the mall.

The new mall will also have plenty of natural light as the centre's expansion is designed to Green Building Council of SA green-star specifications.

For those who enjoy the social side of Menlyn, there will be a central gathering place, inspired by Italian piazzas, bringing together food and fun. There will be restaurants, fast food outlets, coffee shops and delis.

But it is not only the centre that is undergoing a facelift, as the centre's branding and logo will also be changing.

'For those who have grown up in Pretoria, Menlyn has been part of their childhood and is the venue of many shared memories,' says Peter Levett, chief executive of Old Mutual Property.

'Menlyn is not only a landmark in Pretoria but is synonymous with the things that make us feel good and look good - entertainment and fashion. It has gained iconic status over the past 35 years and we felt it was important to pay respect to this with the new brand and identity.

'The Menlyn Park shopper is fashion forward and appreciates quality design,' says Marius Muller, chief executive of Pareto.

'While the mall will proudly wear a new badge as it steps into its bright new future, it also retains a respectful tribute to its rich past.'

Because if there is ONE thing that Gauteng doesn't have enough of, it is Italian-inspired entertainment!

There's a difference between not being a perfect replication and not putting any effort in. The lines of the cladding just below the spire aren't even drawn straight :lol:

That's not a 3D render...that's someone taking a brush to a photo.
