The Boardwalk Mall development is expected to more than double the retail space in the Boardwalk Precinct, which will be tenanted with retailers to the local market, and ready to open in 2022. The planned Boardwalk Mall retail mix includes two supermarkets, two pharmacies, specialist food retailer and major bank representation. An appealing variety of restaurants, coffee shops and fast-food options will be complemented by health and beauty, home and décor, cellular and electronics, gifting, sports and speciality shops. Everyday services and essential fashion will also feature.
“We are excited about the many synergies between the different elements of the new Boardwalk Precinct. The retail, leisure, casino and events will all complement each other, and create an amazing experience for guests. Its different uses will also appeal to a wide-range of people and ensure the precinct is activated around the clock and throughout the week. Sun Park Square will also be able to host events that cater to local lifestyles, such as the Iron Man.”
- ANTHONY LEEMING, CEO OF SUN INTERNATIONAL
“We have always felt that this is a unique, strategic and exciting retail development opportunity in South Africa, and our view still holds. It is a privilege to be working with visionary partners of the calibre of Emfuleni Resorts and Sun International to develop the ultimate convenience shopping experience in Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, and we look forward to being part of the venture that will make this vision a reality.”
