We’re fascinated by the facts and figures behind the scenes during Ferndale on Republic’s redevelopment. Here are a few of the most interesting ones:

    •    There are currently 341 people working on site, with several jobs created and families benefiting from this project;
    •    Our new roof sheeting is the size of four soccer fields put together;
    •    If all of the 2,8 million bricks were laid end to end, it would form a line of 616km long, that’s from Ferndale on Republic to Maputo in Mozambique;
    •    The weight of the structural and reinforcing steel is equal to approximately 125 elephants;
    •    The concrete volume would fill eight Olympic swimming pools, that’s an astounding 20,790m³.

You can fire up those New Year’s health and fitness resolutions at the brand new Ignite Fitness <https://ignitefitness.com/> opening. You can choose from a variety of daily group training classes, individual sessions or small group training with top personal trainers. This new breed of gym offers you up to 75 exercise options a day, from low-impact to high-intensity, cycling, dance, boot camps or kick-boxing. Ignite will be opening in early February.

Ferndale on Republic, previously known as Brightwater Commons in Randburg, is extremely proud to announce that the centre will once again be assisting the general public with recycling their household items.

“We encourage our shoppers and the Randburg community to recycle as this contributes to a cleaner neighbourhood and planet and it’s with this in mind, that we would like to educate the public on what recycling service Ferndale On Republic offer,” says centre manager, Francois du Buisson.

The area where patrons are encouraged to deposit their already sorted recycled items, is currently situated behind Home Stuff, close to the Cross Street entrance.  This will be the temporary recycling area until such time as the centre’s refurbishment concludes mid-2019, thereafter the recycling area will be relocated closer to Republic Road.
Important Ferndale On Republic Recycling Guidelines:

  • No mixed recyclables will be accepted nor other contaminated waste or recyclables. Recyclables must be clean and dry;
  • Recyclables must be sorted at home i.e. glass, plastic, paper and tins in bags.  Bags will be inspected prior to accepting it;
  • Patrons may only drop off recyclables at Ferndale On Republic between 8 AM and 4 PM, Monday to Sunday. Unfortunately, NO recycled items will be accepted after hours;
  • No garden waste will be accepted;
  • No wet waste will be accepted;
  • No furniture will be accepted;
  • No toxic, poisons and oil or any harmful chemicals will be accepted;
  • Please ensure to make use of the DESCO bin for all electronic waste;
  • No polystyrene will be accepted.

It is extremely important to adhere to these guidelines in order to keep the recycling initiative viable for patrons and the centre. “We strive to continuously offer this service to Ferndale On Republic shoppers and the greater Randburg community and thus everyone’s cooperation is imperative,” says du Buisson.

“We are not a substitute for the city waste removal and all NON-recyclables must still be placed in the bins for City of Jo’burg to collect,” he concludes.

We recently broke ground at Ferndale on Republic, the landmark redevelopment of Brightwaters Commons in Republic Road, with an official sod turning event. This ceremony was hosted by the co-owners in this redevelopment, the Moolman Group – also the lead developers, the PHG Group and Braam van Huyssteen.

Guests were welcomed by Pieter Lombaard, CEO for the Moolman Group with Braam van Huysteen re-confirming the significance of Ferndale on Republic as a community shopping centre: “Republic Road and the area surrounding it is so busy, and this is a huge opportunity to offer something truly valuable to the local community.”

This view is also shared by some of the local ward councillors, who attended the event. Councillor Mike Wood shared how important the centre is for the local economy: “I think this is an exciting initiative. Simply seeing the latest unemployment figures that have recently come out, lets you know that any initiative to Randburg, in particular, to boost the economy and generate more jobs has to be welcomed.” Councillor David Potter added to this: “I feel that this is the ultimate change the centre needs… we have finally arrived at a vision for a deserved upmarket shopping centre that can serve thousands of people in the surrounding area.”

Guests to the ceremony were welcomed to a tour of the new 12,000m² Urban Brew Studios, the local leading television production company that has been in business since 1995.  In keeping with the theme of adding value to the community, UnlockD a youth talent-development business who prepare young job seekers to kick-start their careers, has taken up 1 000m² of office space in the centre, to ‘unlock’ local talent and potential. Adding some flair to the event were the finalists in the 2018 ‘Apprentesses’ competition, a platform empowering young women to reach their dreams and make a difference in the South African entertainment industry.

Once complete in September 2019, Ferndale on Republic will feature several impressive national brands and stores to serve the densely populated community of 36 000 households in the surrounding area. This massive mixed-use redevelopment is approximately 53 000m² in size, of which half will be dedicated to the shopping centre housing existing tenants like Pick n Pay and Clicks, alongside newcomers such as Food Lovers Market and ABSA bank. Pick n Pay will be relocating to a bigger, improved location in the next few months, and will trade from their new site in April 2019. In the interim, please note that the main entrance to Pick n Pay is closed due to construction and shoppers should make use of a temporary entrance located in the new parking area.

And remember - you don’t have to wait until 2019 then to visit us - these stores are currently trading!
