Gauteng’s oldest shopping mall to be revamped

The years have not been kind to Corlett City, and signs of urban decay were starting to show, but all this is set to change with Park Village Properties’ revamp of the site.

The mall is three weeks into an upgrade that will see its bright new colours, spick and span surrounds and 24 hour secure access revitalise the entire area, says Corlett City General Manager Brian Lewis.

Neighbouring shops and residents have already expressed delight in the progress thus far and in six to eight weeks the mall will have undergone a major facelift. The mall currently services Savoy, Bramley Gardens, Bramley View and the Balfour area and is set to reclaim some of the appeal of its glory days when it was buzzing with shops, restaurants and even an ice-rink.

Anchor tenants Vodacom, Cell C and Voltex Lighting believe the revamp will draw more traffic and tenants to the mall, which is also home to hairdressers, eateries, doctors, attorneys and accountants.  The mall is hoping to attract a more upmarket clientele with fenced-in secure parking, camera surveillance and 24 hour security personnel.

“The new bright yellow and turquoise colours and huge signage will restore the site to the landmark it once was,” says Lewis.
