Village View receives face lift

The stylish Village View shopping centre in Bedfordview is undergoing a R20 million makeover by owners The Cavaleros Group.

The redevelopment will enhance this distinctively popular centre with greater retail variety, better shopper flows and a more vibrant overall experience.

“The project allows us to refine Village View’s retail and dining offering to best meet the needs of our patrons and to keep the centre fresh and relevant to its market,” says Elsabe Griesel, portfolio manager for The Cavaleros Group. “It also provides the opportunity to move existing tenants, strengthen our tenant mix and create feature zones within the centre. This will boost the entire experience at Village View”.

Building on its exceptional dining, which already includes the like of Tashas, Pigalle and Rodizio, Village View is adding three new restaurants to the menu. Vovo Telo will bring its beautiful bread and artisanal food to Village View visitors from the end of June this year. Two more exciting food concepts, which will soon be announced, will open in November when the whole project will be complete.

The new design will also create a vibrant zone for food-on-the-go. Steers and Nandos will both open in brand new locations in June. The exciting changes also include relocating CNA to a more suitable position near Clicks.

Over 1,500sqm of the centre is being refurbished, including new space of 300sqm to help accommodate the ongoing demand for retail space at the centre.

Griesel notes that Village View’s stylish and trendsetting customers expect nothing less than the best from their favourite hot spot.

The stylish Village View has a track record of strong trading from its 40 hand-picked tenants. Enjoying superb visibility, it provides convenient access directly from the main arterial of Van Buuren Road, with generous free parking. SA property investment company The Cavaleros Group own Village View.

As much as possible, the refurbishment project will not disrupt the overall shopping experience. “We have temporarily moved a few tenants to allow the construction. However, we are doing everything possible to minimise its impact on the daily running of the centre,” says Griesel.
