Project Description

Nelson Mandela Square

One of the largest open public spaces in the country, Nelson Mandela Square is the result of long development process. The 56,000m2 mixed use development by Stocks & Stocks Properties was for co-owners, Stocks & Stocks Limited, the Transnet Pension Fund and the Sandton City consortium (Liberty Life and Pareto).

Linked by a retail-lined bridge to Sandton City, this development effectively increased Sandton City’s rentable area by 50% and provided an open-air meeting and dining are above a multi-level basement parking garage.

Neil Gardner was MD of Stocks & Stocks Properties, working closely with his deputy chairman, Bart Dorrestein and the professional team to create, arguably, the heart of modern Sandton.
