The newly launched Central Square – a large scale mixed-use development in Pretoria’s Menlyn Maine precinct – ups the stakes for sustainable design in South Africa’s retail sector, having piloted a new custom rating tool for Green Star certifications.
The latest completed extension at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in Tshwane is its most significant as the centre achieved a 4-Star Green Star SA Retail Design rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) – the first operational mall in South Africa to achieve this rating.
Imagine an interior that is designed like an exterior. The Watershed is an unconventional retail space firmly grounded in green design principles.
The facade of Lideta Mercato – an eight-storey shopping mall in central Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which is due for completion at the end of June – is it’s most striking feature, but its green building attributes run much deeper.
A massive new mixed-use development in the heart of Newtown is connecting Johannesburg’s past, present and future, and reviving the viability of a tired inner city area.
Four additions to the V&A Waterfront Silo District, built around the historic grain silo complex will be completed soon. All are to pursue groundbreaking sustainability opportunities.
Pick n Pay (PnP) On Nicol, near Sandton, the supermarket chain’s flagship green store, opened its doors in October 2010. It has proven to be such a hit that two more stores, replicating much of the design of the On Nicol store, will open soon. The Falls, in north-west Johannesburg is set to open in November 2012, and Chatsworth in KwaZulu-Natal will open in March 2013.
