Exciting New Additions At The Zone @ Rosebank
The Zone @ Rosebank, a popular shopping, eating and nightlife hub, is undergoing a R500-million revamp, and the second phase of the project has introduced new big-name tenants and shortly also a city-sightseeing bus stop.
The phase-one renovations of the trendy lifestyle destination, located between Cradock Avenue and Oxford Road in Rosebank and owned by Old Mutual Life Assurance Company South Africa, started mid-2015. The latest developments at the shopping centre have been The Zone Boulevard which opened Rosebank’s first Rocomamas and new-look News Café. The shopping centre is also home to the largest vertical living wall in Africa. The wall is filled with an array of plants bringing along with it a breath of fresh air to the busy shopping environment.
The phase-two redevelopments which started in March 2016 will also be adding a Hamleys toy store in the next quarter of the year. Hamleys is well known and prides itself in being the finest toy shop in the world. With the store opening soon, The Zone @ Rosebank will play home to the sixth store of its kind in Africa.
“The intention of phase-two is to bring a new architectural design to the area that is aesthetically pleasing, and will enhance our shoppers’ experience,” says Rui Moca, The Zone @ Rosebank facilities manager.
Clicks opened its doors in The Zone @ Rosebank at the beginning of this month. With 650 stores across the country, Clicks is a trendsetter in the healthcare market and boasts over 360 in-store pharmacies.

The additional space in the café allows for a dedicated roastery and lab area for barristers to keep learning and improving.

Now, there is Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream - made with fresh and natural ingredients and a total absence of synthetic additives and chemicals. Paul’s homemade ice cream opened its first store at The Zone in November 2015 and the market has taken a huge liking to them.
