Thavhani City, a major economic hub in Thohoyandou, Limpopo, will become home to the first Builders Warehouse in the region as well as host the largest NHC medical day care clinin in the country.
Phase one of Thavhani City, the 50 000-square metre regional Thavhani Mall, opened on August 24, 2017, has proven to be a success and catalyst for the development rollout of the surrounding Thavhani City mixed-use urban precinct.
The precinct is designed to be the future economic hub of Northern and Eastern Limpopo.
Plans for the precinct include private health care facilities, new transport terminals, a motor city, offices, hotels and a value retail centre.
Community soccer fields and an outdoor gym, linked by landscaped pedestrian walkways, are also planned.
The first Builders Warehouse for the region is in the process of being built, and is set to open for trade on June 28.
The first phase of the store will cover 3 200-square metres, and aims to provide excellent, high-quality hardware and building materials to the growing residential construction industry in the area.
The NHC private medical day care clinic is also underway. It is set to be the flagship centre, and at 3 500-square metres, will be the group’s largest clinic in the country.
The clinic will have provide key medical specialists and facilities, which include a radiologist, pathologist, dialysis and ten general practioners. A nursery school will also be available on the premises.
A new office park is set to be developed within Thavhani City, which will house a multi-business office park that will offer vibrant co-working facilities for entrepreneurs. It will also actively encourage small business, job creation and economic activity.
The motor city is set to house major car brands and be supported by complementary service businesses. A private hospital, able to accommodate more than 100 beds, is also planned for the precinct.
Local businessman Khosi Ramovha, of Thavhani Property Investments, says: “The creation of Thavhani City will not just retain retail expenditure, but more importantly the human capital that has historically moved to major metros for economic opportunities and modern living. We are building the modern living facilities and bringing these opportunities and people home.”
Paul Gerard, MD of Flanagan & Gerard, comments: “Thavhani City creates a central hub that allows its community easy access to a mixed-use of urban functions and facilities. It also boosts the standard of living in Thohoyandou, heightens its appeal as a place to live, work and strengthens the local economy. The response to the vision for Thavhani City has been tremendously positive and we are proud to be a part of building its very bright future.”
