Louis Pretorius, a partner at MDS Architecture, says that the new single level enclosed shopping centre currently in build in Mamelodi will offer 16 640m² GLA.
“Mamelodi Square is situated in an area with limited business premises. It will serve the community by offering an array of shopping options, a food court and children’s play area. For this reason, it was important to ensure easy access from both Tsamaya Avenue and Shilovhane Street,” says Pretorius.
Designed by award-winning MDS Architecture for developers McCormick Property Development and Putprop Limited, a listed property group, the centre is located in the heart of Mamelodi.
The entrances are large, bright red portal structures which pop against the exterior neutral colour palette in shades of gray. The food court and children’s play area are situated at one of the prominent entrances into Mamelodi Square. Lighting of the mall and the entrances was given a lot of thought during the design process. It also features a series of roof lights.
Mamelodi Square has parking for 322 cars and a taxi rank that can accommodate 43 taxis.
The main contractor is Tri-Star Construction and completion is scheduled for October 2022.
