R400m Eyethu Mall a community asset, Property24.com – Property24
The development of Eyethu Orange Farm Mall will result in the entire Orange Farm community holding a 10 percent stake in this 27 000 square metre regional shopping mall, which is helping to transform the area into a flourishing central business district, and creating a valuable multi-faceted community asset. This extraordinary vision, 19 years in the making, is finally becoming a reality. The mall, located midway between Johannesburg and Vereeniging, broke ground last month and will proudly open its doors in September 2014. The idea for Eyethu Orange Farm Mall was first born with businessman Vusi Tshabalala nearly two decades ago. Tshabalala believes that where the community has no mineral wealth, its only wealth is its buying power.
