Eastgate Shopping Centre
Dominating the retail landscape in the east of Johannesburg is Eastgate Shopping Centre, a long-established super-regional centre with significant customer support.
Upon its completion in 1979, Eastgate boasted an unprecedented GLA of 90 000m² and became the first super-regional shopping centre in Johannesburg. It was also the largest shopping centre in South Africa and the southern hemisphere. Today, the retail component of the Eastgate Complex spans nearly 137 000m², with an office component of about 8 000m².
Eastgate’s Aquaponic Farm District, launched in 2019 and located on the centre’s rooftop, is the first of its kind in African shopping centres. It uses smart new technologies to provide sustainable solutions to food production and food security for patrons of the centre and the broader Johannesburg. The farm district offers 100% natural and fresh produce at the source and reduces the impact on humans and the natural environment by avoiding the use of chemicals and synthetic fertilisers while reducing water consumption, carbon emissions and packaging requirements.
Eastgate has partnered with Zeelo to launch a luxury shuttle between Eastgate and Sandton City.
