Octodec launches newly upgraded, landmark Shoprite building in Tshwane CBD

The Company completes its R60 million multifaceted Shoprite upgrade, playing its part in uplifting Tshwane retail business district.

23 February 2023 – JSE listed REIT, Octodec Investments Limited, today unveiled the new look and feel of its Shoprite building in the heart of the Tshwane CBD – a R60 million investment project announced in August 2022 to boost and uplift the bustling central node.

Jeffrey Wapnick, MD of Octodec, says, “This project cements our commitment to the City of Tshwane which continuously presents growth opportunities for our already dominant inner-city retail and residential portfolio. It represents a renewal of our relationship and an upgrade of our service to a city that is increasingly attracting national retailers.”

“We are excited to see this new building bring an elevated experience to our tenants, who have trusted us with quality developments that enhance their day-to-day lives. It is a value adding project that will further deepen the trust and confidence our clients have in our inner-city knowledge, which bodes long term relations,” added Wapnick.

While Shoprite continued to trade during the upgrade, tenants will now enjoy their daily shopping in a newly furbished 4000m² Shoprite supermarket which includes a new Shoprite Liquor and new retail shops on the ground floor.

In addition, the tenants will be exposed to other prominent brand-new architectural elements such as a triple volume entrance with escalator access from Helen Joseph Street, which lead downwards to the newly refurbished OK Furniture store.

A launch event was held with Shoprite staff celebrating the new building and exciting customer activities including prize giveaways from in-store suppliers and Shoprite-branded promotional items.
