The Phase 3 development almost completed

Liberty Midlands Mall recently hosted a pre-launch of their Phase 3 development which included a site visit of the area for both media and those involved in the development, on March 1st!

After years of planning and hard work from the project team, the construction of Liberty Midlands Mall’s Phase 3 development commenced in November 2016 and is to be completed and ready for trade on 15 March 2018.

The Phase 3 expansion will introduce retail and leisure space of almost 22,000m2, increasing the size of the mall to an impressive 78,000m2, parking space that will accommodate over 3,000 vehicles, and will ultimately welcome several ‘firsts to the PMB market’ retailers to the mall.

The expansion brings the tenant count to over 200 stores, and has provided the space for brands that could not previously be accommodated. These include Volpes, Coricraft, Pick ‘n Pay Clothing, Tekkie Town, The Hub, Just Plastics and Rochester, amongst others. RocoMamas and Mozambik will be two of the five restaurants in Phase 3’s indoor-outdoor, alfresco style dining offering. Phase 3 will be anchored by Checkers.

Mozambik, Toy Kingdom & Build A Bear, Volpes & @Home Livingspace.
