Canada The new land of milk and honey in Prop»ay Gauteng Premier David Makhura The newly opened Mall of Africa has set a benchmark in mixed-use shopping and entertainment in South Africa`s newest CBD – Waterfall City – by being the largest first-phase mall development in southern Africa to date. Mall of Africa opened for business as scheduled on 28 April 2016 and boasts more than 300 outlets across the 131 038m2 mall. Waterfall is located midway between Johannesburg and Pretoria and is considered one of the fastest-growing areas in South Africa. In fact, Waterfall City currently offers the third-largest office headquarters after the Johannesburg CBD and Sandton.The location is key thanks to its close proximity to both ORTambo International Airport and Lanseria Airport. Waterfall City and Mall of Africa are also on a convenient Gautrain bus route from the nearby Midrand station, with ample provision for public taxi access. Dedicated Uber pickup and drop-off points at the Mall are a first on offer in a South African retail environment. Owned by Attacq (80%), developed by Atterbury, engineered by Aurecon and designed by MDS Architecture, the fully completed project is an all-encompassing collaboration, and was valued at R4,9-billion upon opening for trade. Attacq is a leading South African capital growth property company listed on the JSE with two focus areas: investments and developments. The company has a diverse investment portfolio with an excellent risk profile and its international development footprint strengthens the Attacq diversity beyond its South African portfolio. “The opening of this iconic mega mall marks a significant strategic milestone for retail in South Africa and takes the African retail experience to a total next level,” says Morne Wilken, Chief Executive Officer of Attacq …

Curtain raised on retail colossus, Mall of Africa

Big investment. Big shopper numbers and job opportunity expectations. Can this iconic mall deliver? It has been years in the making but the R5bn, 130 000m2 super-regional mall, Mall of Africa, located within Waterfall City in Midrand, is finally a reality. It’s an immense development – a total construction area of 550 000m2 – and the largest single-phase mall development in South Africa, equivalent to around 78 rugby fields. Yet construction took just 36 months to complete. And should its already mammoth size not be big enough to cater to market demand, the mall can be extended by a further 25 000m2. The iconic mall is owned by DSE-listed capital growth fund Attacq Limited (80%) and Atterbury Property (20%). Costing a whopping sum of around R3.8bn to construct, the development is now valued at R4.9bn, says Attacq CEO Morné Wilken. Accessibility to this super-regional mall was crucial if the expected number of shoppers was to be realised. For this purpose property developer Atterbury undertook major road upgrades around the development to make it easily accessible, including building a bridal veil bridge that creates a direct link between Midrand and Waterfall City. The viability of another shopping mall may be questioned but the Mall of Africa benefits from being an in-fill development; everything else already having developed around it. And its location puts this colossus in an immediate catchment area of in excess of 100 000 households. That household number is likely to increase. Apart from housing development in surrounding areas and within Waterfall City itself, at the official opening Gautenq Premier David Makhura said that 15 000 houses for low- and middle-income earners will also be built in Midrand. The Mall of Africa, said the premier, is the main anchor of the Waterfall City CBD and is an important part of the movement to transform the landscape and economy of Gauteng, further pointing out that investment by private business into the province not only grows the province’s economy, but also addresses the A A general view shows the newly inaugurated Mall of Africa in Midrand on its opening day on 28 April.

Die Mall of Africa in Waterfall City in Mid-rand is die grootste enkelfase-winkelsentrum wat nog in die land opgerig is. Die waarde van die sentrum beloop R4,9 miljard. Die grootte van die megasentrum met ruimte van 131038 m2 is egter nie al wat daarvan ‘n bakenontwikkeling maak nie. D`Anvo Jones, Pretoriase afdelingshoof van eiendomsfinansiering by Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking (NCIB), se die finansieringstrukture wat die ontwikkeling moontlik gemaak het, is ewe indrukwekkend. NCIB se eiendomsfinansieringsafdeling het uit die staanspoor opgetree as die primere finansieringsvennoot van die Mall of Africa-ontwikkelaar, Attacq Waterfall Investment Company, ‘n volfiliaal van die genoteerde Attacq. Jones se die sukses van die finansieringstrukture waarop die ontwikkeling gebou is, is ‘n regstreekse gevolg van die sterk verhouding wat reeds tussen Attacq en NCIB se eiendomsfinansieringsafdeling bestaan het. “Om ‘n ontwikkeling van die grootte te finansier, verg veel meer as net toegang tot finansiering.” Hy se dit vereis ‘n sterk vennootskap tussen ‘n ontwikkelaar en ‘n finansier wat gevestig is op ‘n gedeelde visie, wedersydse vertroue en respek, asook die vermoë om saam te werk en buite die boks te dink om sodoende met innoverende en gepaste finansieringsoplossings vorendag te kom. “Die feit dat NCIB se eiendomsfinansieringsafdeling en Attacq lank voordat werk aan die Mall of Africa begin het reeds so ‘n verhouding gehad het, was van kernbelang om die ontwikkeling tot op die punt te kry waar dit nou is – die opening van sy deure vir verbruikers met ‘n groot aptyt vir `n nuwe kleinhandelervaring.” Hy vertrou dat ‘n sterk mark vir ‘n sentrum so groot soos die Mall of Africa bestaan, ondanks die ekonomiese uitdagings wat die land en verbruikers in die gesig staar …

Gauteng shoppers still have plenty of appetite for retail therapy, judging by the 84,000 people who streamed through the Mall of Africa’s doors on the first day of trade last Thursday. But JSE-listed Attacq’s new 131,000 m2 mega-mall at Waterfall City near Midrand, 4Yi years in the making, hasn’t just created excitement among shoppers. It’s also a milestone for shareholders. The R4.9bn mall, which is co-owned by Attacq (80%) and unlisted developer Atterbury (20%), is now the company’s largest asset by far, representing about 15% of total assets of close to R28bn. Mall of Africa is expected to boost Attacq’s NAV and rental income strongly over the next few years. Attacq CEO Morné Wilken says the mall should lure 15m shoppers a year and generate sales turnover of about R4bn/year. Attacq will earn rental income of R78m in the first year of the mall’s operation. But Wilken says there’s plenty of upside potential in the income and valuation projections as turnover rentals kick in and additional revenue sources such as parking are included. More importantly, he says, the mall will be a catalyst for the development of the rest of the 323 ha Waterfall precinct over the next 10-15 years …

Mall of Africa is conveniently located just off the N1 Allandale interchange. Morné comments that despite some concerns in the industry about the retail sector being overdeveloped, he is confident that Mall of Africa meets a very real need for a super-regional shopping destination in this particular area – the alternatives for residents previously having been Sandton City or Menlyn Park. “There are more than 100,000 households in our immediate catchment area, with a wide variety of LSM’s to be served,” he said.

Winkelsentrums is nie net vir koop nie, maar ook vir kuier. Die genoteerde eiendomsbeleggingsfonds Attacq glo ‘n enorme restaurantgebied en grasperke so groot soos drie rugbyvelde sal verbruikers na sy Mall of Africa bly lok – selfs al druk die ekonomie ook. “Mense gaan nie net na winkelsentrums om inkopies te doen nie, maar ook om te sosialiseer. Dit is hoekom Mall of Africa groot grasperke het waar ons ook lewenstyl-aktiwiteite soos konserte en uitstallings sal kan aanbied,” se Morné Wilken, uitvoerende hoof. Attacq het die afgelope week sy jaar-resultate bekend gemaak en sy netto batewaarde per aandeel het in die jaar tot 31 Desember met 24,5% geklim tot R19,33.

Attacq is confident it will achieve stronger capital growth when its major expansion projects including The Mall of Africa and the second phase of Waterfall City, kick into gear. Attacq will open the R4.8bn shopping centre The Mall of Africa in the Waterfall City precinct next month, and is hoping it will perform well, provide upside to its share price, and support the group`s overall net asset value (NAV). Attacq CEO Morné Wilken said: “Mall of Africa will act as a strong catalyst for demand for premises in the surrounding Waterfall City, which has a further 663,815m2 of bulk available for development.” “Waterfall City is seen as one of the most significant South African commercial developments of the decade. “Once the mall is online it will help to generate strong returns out of the city, attracting people who work or live in Waterfall or nearby, boosting our overall net asset value and rewarding shareholders,” said Mr Wilken …

“Net sewe weke voordat die enorme streek-winkelsentrum Mall of Africa in Waterfall City, Gauteng, oopmaak, het sy ontwikkelaar, Attacq, stewige tussentydse resultate bekend gemaak. In die ses maande tot Desember het Attacq se netto batewaarde per aandeel met 24,5% opgeskiet, vergeleke met die halflaar tot Desember 2014. Attacq het uit die baie suksesvolle Atterbury-groep ontstaan en het in Oktober 2013 op die JSE genoteer. Hy bestuur nou eiendom ter waarde van R27,1 miljard, ‘n stewige 16,3% meer as in Junie 2015. Byna ‘n kwart daarvan is in ontwikkelde lande. Die groep spesialiseer in winkelsentrums en kantoorgeboue. Morné Wilken, uitvoerende hoof, sê hulle “leef hul visie” van “ontwikkel, belê en groei” uit. Die juweel in Attacq se kroon is Waterfall City in Midrand, ‘n kombinasie van residensiële en kantoor-eiendom, en die Mall of Africa. Van die oppervlakte van 131 038 m2 is nog net 1 400 m2 nie verhuur nie, maar Attacq se hy is in gevorderde onderhandelinge en daar sal waarskynlik nie oop ruimte wees wanneer die sentrum op 28 April oopmaak nie …
