Redevelopment under way at Bayside Mall

GROWTHPOINT Properties are busy with a R352m major redevelopment project for Bayside Mall, located in the heart of the Table View and Parklands areas.

The commenced in May 2023 and will introduce new retail choices, a revamped food court, improved shopper flows and better access to the centre – all with a refreshed, contemporary look across the mall.

The update responds to significant changes in South Africa’s retail landscape over the past few years, especially shifting shopping trends within the mall’s immediate catchment area.

The multifaceted development project includes repositioning the main anchor tenant, Checkers, and introducing Shoprite to the tenant mix. These two supermarket anchors are scheduled to welcome shoppers to their new spaces by December 2023.

The project will also introduce more on-grade parking, add new vehicle access and egress points, and provide dedicated parking for taxis to ensure a good flow of all vehicles in the area.

Addressing operational challenges faced by all South African shopping centres and global environmental targets, electricity efficiency and security are key considerations in refreshing Bayside Mall.

The initial project allows for generators enabling the entire centre to be operational during load shedding, which is the first priority. As is Growthpoint’s way, it will also upgrade energy-efficient lighting throughout the mall passages and common areas.

As a second phase, Growthpoint has already embarked on a study to add a significant solar component to the existing solar installation to further assist during load shedding.

The mall already harvests rainwater and will also use this water-smart system in the project’s new bathrooms. As part of the initiative, Growthpoint’s development team will also endeavour to salvage reusable items, such as taps and sanitary ware, to donate to charities in the community.

The redevelopment will be rolled out in phases over approximately 18 months to ensure an easy transition for tenants and shoppers alike. Bayside Mall will remain open for trade throughout the redevelopment period.
