Jakaranda Shopping Centre Redevelopment Project
The Jakaranda Shopping Centre redevelopment is in full swing with the first phase of construction taking place. The redevelopment of Jakaranda comes from a need to re-establish the Centre as a Centre of Convenience, that has roots within the community while adding a fresh modernized look and feel. Sectional and Practical completion dates have been published, showing the Mall Walk Way, Plant Rooms, Existing Parking, Ground Floor Entrance 2 of the Mall and Lower Level Mall Walkway all being completed by December 2019.
Truly exciting times for the Centre as it will stand at an estimated 22 000m2 GLA, with an additional New Entrance off 18th Avenue, leading directly to the Pick n Pay a New Food Court and updated Jakranda Apartment Units.
