Milnerton’s infamous “hole in the ground”, Centre Point Shopping Centre had its roof wetting ceremony on Tuesday November 28. The centre was demolished in 2013, but now new life has been breathed into it (“Derelict shopping centre pulled down,” Tabletalk, April 17 2013). The centre was bought by the Public Investment Corporation (PIC). There will be approximately 45 stores and 48 residential apartments. The opening date is Thursday July 26 next year.
The whole contract value for the development is about R270 million.
