Following the Moolman Group's recent redevelopment, the Randburg community has been reintroduced to Brightwater Commons as Ferndale on Republic, officially launched on 6 December.
Pieter Lombard, CEO of Moolman Group, says: “This project, in contrast to previous endeavours, is a complete redevelopment – which focuses, amongst others, on community. The devotion to reposition Ferndale on Republic is evident through the architecture, tenant mix and marketing strategy. We are confident that our calculated efforts will get rid of past undesirable perceptions and restore Ferndale on Republic as a landmark in Randburg.”
