MIDRAND TO GET SA’S BIGGEST MALL
THE MUCH TALKED ABOUT Zonk’Izizwe mixed-use development – first mooted by Old Mutual 10 years ago – should finally get off the ground in Midrand by June next year. The project will be the biggest shopping centre ever built in South Africa, with rights for 160 000sq m of retail space. The first phase of 200 000sq m is expected to be completed by October 2011 at a cost of around R7bn.
Besides retail, Zonk’Izizwe will include two hotels, a large office component and 4 000 residential units.
