The Tubatse mall development officially broke ground on Friday, 22 July. The sod turning ceremony was performed by local VIPs and attended by approximately 300 guests.

The 32 000sqm shopping mall, situated in the valley of the Spekboom River in the Tubatse Local Municipality, is being developed by Tobatse Mall (Pty) Ltd with the development and project managers being Abacus Asset Management (AAM), the same team responsible for the highly successful Mooiriver Mall in Potchefstroom, which was named  Mall of the Year in 2010. The architectural design for Tubatse Mall is by Stauch Vorster in Johannesburg. Murray & Roberts has been appointed as the contractor responsible for constructing the greatly anticipated retail centre. According to AAM chairman Jaco Odendaal, leading retailers have shown confidence in the development and shoppers can look forward to a modern, enclosed, air-conditioned mall boasting a well-planned tenant mix of over 100 shops, including all the South African favourites and original local stores from the Burgersfort area. “These will also be supplemented by a wonderful variety of food offerings anchored by Pick n Pay, which according to the local community is well overdue.”

Burgersfort has become the hub of a mining boom in Limpopo due to the vast platinum resources located in the area and the Tubatse Mall development is expected to further enhance the economic growth of the region.  Odendaal predicts that between 800 and 900 new job opportunities will be created during the construction phase and in excess of 800 permanent and casual jobs will be created following the opening of Tubatse Mall, which is planned for March 2013.

The developers value community involvement, he notes, and have appointed community liaison officers and a BEE specialist, to monitor the maximum benefit for the local economy be achievedA modern design, easy access to the site and 1000 parking bays will all add to a new and exciting shopping experience for the people of Burgersfort and surrounding towns. * For leasing enquiries, retailers should contact Insaaf Ajam at the Abacus Asset Management offices on 021 886 5262 or
