River Walk Mall
This project was initiated with the purpose to give life to an existing old soul and improve its retail market share. The design was initiated from research into the retail potential of the center through tenant mix, convenience and general aesthetics that are in line with current shopping center trends and norms. Within a constrained budget, the proposal sought out to refurbish the center in such a way that it does not necessarily compete with the adjacent Mooi River but compliments the urban shopping node. Integration and improvements to the taxi rank connectivity were key considerations. The huge influx of commuters traveling through the center is captured and used as a driving force in terms of providing a comfortable route and access to the Taxi Rank but at the same time capturing the market and providing a more convenient, quality shopping experience.
