Situated on the corner of the R27, West Coast Road and Berkshire Boulevard on a 20-hectare site, this is the largest regional mall in the hub of the Big Bay, Bloubergstrand and West Beach areas with over 65,000m 2 of retail space. Vivid Architects was approached by Zenprop Property Holdings in 2010 to look at designs on potential sites in the Sunnigndale area. Table Bay Mall is the 9th regional shopping centre that Vivid Architects has completed for Zenprop; a relationship that goes back to 2003 and the Design Quarter in Fourways, Johannesburg. Table Bay Mall’s more than 150 shops and restaurants are located on a single retail level in the form of a figure eight layout. Retail food anchors are positioned at the extreme ends of the mall on either side; namely Pick n Pay and Checkers respectively. The central mall node is anchored by Woolworths and H&M as well as larger restaurants. The layout provides for easy navigation for shoppers with particular attention having been paid to sight lines from all the key node areas to the anchor tenants, effectively drawing the customer through the four mall quadrants. Design Aesthetic The design aesthetic considered the location of the mall in close proximity to the coast as well as the mall name. The overall design aesthetic has been inspired and influenced by a contemporary nautical theme.
