Accelerate are in the final stages of acquiring Eden Meander Lifestyle centre in George, Western Cape. Eden Meander is a newly built multi-tenanted lifestyle shopping centre located in the residential hub of George, Western Cape. George is the administrative and commercial hub of the Garden Route and is one of the largest towns in the Western Cape.

Eden Meander is located next to the Garden Route Mall and complements the Garden Route Mall by offering a lifestyle shopping centre experience and larger scale premises to national retailers. Eden Meander is accessible from the George Central Business District, neighbouring residential suburbs, including Groenkloof Retirement Village, Blue Mountain Retirement Estate, Thembalethu, and the site of the proposed Destiny Africa Estate multi-purpose development. The Garden Route Mall and Eden Meander retail node services customers from George and neighbouring towns such as Wildernes, Sedgefield, Knysna, Groot Brakrivier, Tergniet, Klein Brakrivier, Hartenbos and Mossel Bay.

The centre is anchored by Shoprite Checkers and Builders Warehouse. It also includes national tenants such as: Sportsman’s Warehouse, House and Home, Pick ‘n Pay clothing, The Golf Pro-shop, Mambo Plastics, Golden Harvest, PNA and Home Etc.

The acquisition allows Accelerate the opportunity to add a new strategic node to its nodal strategy, and allows for a natural expansion in this node as there is a considerable amount of bulk that can be unlocked in the area. This potential will be realised in the coming years as George is one of the fastest-growing towns in South Africa.
