- Bloemfontein (the newly developed Botshabelo Mall).
The Liberty Two Degrees Portfolio also includes interests in the mixed-use precinct of Melrose Arch.
The Sandton City Complex is located in the economic heartland of Johannesburg and showcases some of the most prestigious of international and domestic retailers. The attraction of its long-established presence and overall quality make it irreplaceable and confers brand-value and recognition on the Liberty Two Degrees Portfolio.
The recently refurbished Nelson Mandela Square is a destination centre with a good entertainment offering complementing the neighbouring Sandton City Complex.
Melrose Arch’s office and retail component supports its status as one of the leading mixed use precincts in Johannesburg’s high end Northern Suburbs.
Similarly, the Eastgate Complex, with its strong history and recent upgrade, is located in a large catchment area and has slowly built its way into becoming one of the most prominent malls in Johannesburg.
Liberty Midlands Mall and Liberty Promenade Mall are large high-quality centres within regional catchment areas positioned for high growth.
In addition to the offices included in the Liberty Two Degrees Portfolio’s main retail complexes, the Portfolio also boasts select office properties located in key business nodes with blue-chip anchor tenants, namely the Standard Bank Centre in Johannesburg, Liberty Centre in Century City Office Park in Cape Town and Liberty Centre in Umhlanga Ridge, Durban.
