Is the mall on Plattekloof road open yet?

Recommended Posts

Richmond Park Development
The "convenience centre" is called Richmond Corner. It's only 6500m2 so it's more a neighborhood strip mall. It looks a bit like Plattekloof Village Shopping Centre but just over half the size (Plattekloof Village has a lettable area of around 11000m2, so 60% of the size) to give you an indication how small this centre is.

Apparently it's opening tomorrow:

Richmond Park is a prime business site on Cape Town’s N7 corridor. It offers four-lane road access from both the N1 and N7 highways, making it a suitable location for logistics and warehousing, Atterbury says.

In line with Richmond Park’s emphasis on transport accessibility, the mixed-use precinct development includes improvements to surrounding public roads.

As a popular and growing industrial node, the operating and future facilities at Richmond Park include those of Aramex, Cape Fruit Coolers, CTM, Mustek, Scoop, ACDC Dynamics, Max on Top, Corex and Sequence Logistics in conjunction with RPP.

The mixed-use development also includes Richmond Corner, which is now scheduled to open on July 23.

The new convenience shopping centre was only four weeks away from opening to customers when the country began its national lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19 in late March.

Construction on Richmond Corner started in May 2019, and was virtually complete when the lockdown began.

Anchored by Pick n Pay, Woolworths Food and Clicks, the fully let 6 500 m2 shopping centre will provide essential food, grocery, drive-through take-aways, and health and pharmacy retail, among other things.

“Richmond Corner’s location and retail mix is designed to fulfil a valuable role in its community. Now, with the national Covid-19 response, access to local retail has become even more critical,” says Van den Berg.

Thank you @Mesa Verde which areas do you think people will visit this mall from?  

Richwood
Bothasig
Burgundy Estate
Dunoon
So lower to lower-middle income areas. With Dunoon on the lower end and Burgundy Estate on the upper end. Bothasig does have its own neighborhood strip mall so does Burgundy Estate.

Open a shop selling R500 t-shits, R1000 jeans and R2000 shoes and the people of Dunoon will make you a millionaire within a year.
