Namibia’s largest mall is in its final construction stages

Grove Mall’s marketing manager, Corlia van Tonder, has said the delays experienced resulted from the strike by metalworkers in South Africa. The opening date had earlier been scheduled for September this year. Corlia added that the main contractor and subcontractors have been working around the clock to ensure construction ended on time.

The mall cost US$90.2 and is expected to bring revolution to the retail industry in Windhoek. It is developed by Atterbury Property Holdings (Pty) Ltd, Attacq Ltd, The Frontier Property Trust, and Demushuwa Property Developer (Pty) Ltd.
