Breaking ground


Abland, together with partners Giflo Developments and SOM, have commenced work on a new mixed-use precinct called Irene Boulevard in the heart of Irene, South of Pretoria. This site will become the new home to Barloworld Logistics, a division of Barloworld who will be vacating their Sandton offices to occupy this new site.
“What started as a retail centre deal has now evolved into mixed-use precinct, where we will be integrating retail and commercial offerings. The mixed-use precinct came to life after we shared our master plan with Barloworld who were impressed with the offerings of the precinct and immediately bought into the bigger concept,” says Thinus Delport, Development Director, Abland.
The precinct will bring a bespoke lifestyle and a 16 000m² shopping centre to the Irene market with the Barloworld Logistics headquarters comprising 5 500m² of the property.
“We broke ground mid-March 2018 and are aiming for completion of the Barloworld Logistics headquarters in April 2019. We are extremely excited to see the precinct come to life so quickly. Barloworld Limited is a partner in the Barloworld Logistics development and we are privileged to have one of their headquarters become a showpiece of what the rest of the precinct will look like,” Thinus concludes.
