Westgate Shopping Centre, owned by Pareto Limited, will soon be home to brand new dining options in a refreshingly modern food court setting and thrilling entertainment for the whole family with the introduction of state-of-the-art Nu Metro cinemas and action packed games arcade in March 2018.

These significant improvements and additions form part of the phased Westgate Master Development Plan which will add a redesigned dining variety in addition to gaming and cinema entertainment for shoppers to enjoy. This follows hot-on-the-heels of the Phase 1 project which was completed in November 2016 and entailed the refurbishment of the Lower Level mall.   

Malose Kekana, Pareto Group CEO says “the project represents not just the phased repositioning of Westgate Shopping Centre but also Pareto’s success in creating real value for both its tenants and loyal customers. We are thrilled that the project will provide an exceptional new space inspired by the latest innovations in design of dining and entertainment spaces, to deliver a brilliant new shopping experience for Westgate customers. In essence, we are delivering on our commitment to reposition Westgate to a dominant shopping centre in the West Rand by investing substantial capital to improve customer experience. In December 2016, we relaunched the refurbished Lower Level mall which cost R90m and we are now spending a further R130m refurbishing the food court and introducing Nu Metro cinemas and a games arcade.”

The redesigned, high and fully retractable shopfronts, coupled with the new skylight and the fully glazed new entrance façade, will offer shoppers and diners alike, a fresh and elevated dining experience. The skylight will create the feeling of open space dappled in natural light. In addition, the central part of the mall will also feature a dedicated external seating area to offer semi-open dining space for restaurant patrons. Even more exciting, the food court will for the first time ever have communal seating area which will make it possible for families and friends to buy food from outlets of their choice and sit together to enjoy their meal.

What’s more, entertainment at Westgate Shopping Centre will reach new heights with the introduction of ultramodern Nu Metro cinemas, incorporating the latest technology in big screen cinematography. The gaming area below the cinemas will showcase the latest in modern trends of kids’ and family oriented gaming options and facilities. The combined experience of the above mentioned will be as thrilling as it will be unforgettable.

The construction process will be carried out after normal trading hours while full height hoarding will ensure the world-class shopping experience at Westgate will continue as usual.

“We are continuously working to improve our offering by keeping ahead of the latest trends to give our shoppers even more fantastic reasons to visit Westgate Shopping Centre. The last refurbishment phase is estimated at R450m and entails full scale refurbishment of the rest of the mall and upgrade of the façade,” says Kekana.
