A desert oasis of shopping and entertainment for the people of Walvis Bay, the new 27,500m2 Dunes Mall is in the final stages of completion, with its doors set to open to shoppers on October 26.
Developed by leading South African property developer and investor Atterbury, and in partnership with local developers Tradehold, the new R500-million mall will provide residents with a quality regional shopping centre.
“We have designed and built a shopping centre that would stand out anywhere. The design and finishes are of a high quality and there will be no need for locals to leave Walvis anymore, there will be a quality shopping centre on their doorstep,” says Development Manager for Atterbury, Evert Kleynhans.
Walvis Bay is currently enjoying substantial growth, with significant investment being made in its port.
Dunes Mall benefits from a prime location at a major road intersection close to the city’s airport and the iconic tourism area of Swakopmund, providing a comprehensive and exciting variety of shopping and entertainment for Walvis Bay residents and visitors, as well as people from throughout Namibia’s greater Erongo region.
The centre is anchored by a 3,500m2 Checkers, a 2,700m2 Pick n Pay and a 1,700m2 Woolworths. Adding to the mix is a 1,500m2 Dis-Chem and a 1,800m2 House and Home. Fashion retailers are well represented with retail offerings from Cotton On, Truworths, the Mr Price Group, Foschini Group and Pepkor Group.
The mall which will be managed by Atterbury, will be the largest in the area and the second largest in Namibia after The Grove Mall of Namibia, also developed and managed by Atterbury, and is expected to be a catalyst for even more development and investment in the area.
“On completion there will be around 80 shops, all of which will be employing local people, creating a very positive impact on the local population,” Kleynhans says.
