The Eyethu Orange Farm mall will raise the bar on retail estate developments in South Arica and its strategic location will enable it serve locals of Orange Farm community, Evaton and other shoppers from the Sebekong Region boosting the economy of the region.
Some of the investors in this project include the two main contractors, Trust funds from Orange Farm Kitty and Dipula Income Fund.
The regional mall will also have a Day care center for Afrika Tikkun and house local radio station Theta FM.
According to the CEO of Dipula Income Fund, his company acquired the first phase of the mall approximately 5,700m2 with tenants such as Boxer Supercity and Cashbuild. In addition, they plan to build a KFC drive in the same phase.
