BURGERSFORT SHOPPING CENTRE

Location: Burgersfort
Date: 2005
Practice: Leon Krüger Architects
Role: Design Architect
Client: Heriot Properties

Description

  • The shopping centre was to be built on the main crossroads in Burgerfort.
  • The attraction for the location was the main taxi rank in the area, which linked the platinum mines with residential areas.
  • The project failed as a result of land claims and the inability to get to agreements with several taxi operators each which had different ideas about the position of the centre.
  • A centre was developed on a different stand years later.
