Parkdene Boulevard redevelopment bolsters growth of Boksburg node

Construction has commenced on the redevelopment of Parkdene Boulevard, a retail center in the burgeoning suburb of Parkdene in Boksburg, Ekurhuleni. It is set to open in October 2024.

Industry sources added that this 32,000sqm centre is being upgraded by Abland Property Developers and Retail Africa, which are both known for their innovative development approach, and is a collaboration with partners Nedbank CIB and the Ellerine Group. 

Industry sources further added that with a striking new design and a refreshed retail offering, Parkdene Boulevard will be a landmark center in this part of the East Rand. The center has long served Parkdene and the surrounding suburbs, being well located on a major thoroughfare, but had become tired and dated. At the same time, the suburb itself has undergone a period of redevelopment and expansion, with the construction of multiple high-density residential developments giving rise to increased demand for quality retail in the area.

Industry sources added that the redevelopment involves expanding the center from 11,000 sqm to approximately 32,000 sqm and upgrading, expanding, and modernizing a long-standing Checkers Hyper located on the site.

Checkers and other existing tenants, including Checkers Liquor and Spec Savers, will continue to trade throughout the construction period, with great care being taken to minimize any disruption.

Grant Silverman, Director at Abland Property Developers, explains: “We are excited about the potential for Parkdene Boulevard to meet this need and provide an elevated shopping experience within an established yet growing node.”

“The time is ideal for this redevelopment project, which will revitalize an established retail center on a highly accessible and well-located site,” stated Richard O’Sullivan, Executive Director of Retail Africa. Having grown up in Boksburg and having a passion for his hometown and community, he has witnessed the changing fortunes of the area over decades.

Industry sources added that the redevelopment team is also excited to introduce additional tenants such as Crazy Plastics, Dis-Chem, and Edgars and various food options. It will also offer two new drive-throughs, with Burger King and KFC joining the existing McDonald’s Drive-Thru, all conveniently positioned for both local residents and the many commuters in the area.

Industry sources also confirmed that this redevelopment project will unveil complementary retail offerings, services, and restaurants, as well as landscaped green areas, to elevate the overall shopping and customer experience.
