Rosslyn Hub

  • Sector: Mixed-use development
  • Location: Rosslyn, 20 km north-west of the CBD

Project description

Rosslyn Hub is strategically located opposite Nissan SA, BMW SA and Iveco on the doorstep of 750 000 people. It will provide a new ‘town centre’ for Rosslyn, The Orchards, Soshanguve and Ga-Rankuwa.

It has strong logistic links to the N4 highway (to Botswana and Mozambique) and the N1 highway (to Zimbabwe). Rail linkage connects Rosslyn Hub to Transnet’s new freight and logistics mega facility at Pyramid. Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University and Tshwane University of Technology are within 10 km of Rosslyn Hub.

The project consists of the following elements:
  • Regional shopping mall, including an automotive interactive visitor centre and motor court
  • Ancillary retail, including motor showrooms, filling stations, value shopping and convenience shopping
  • Gated commercial and logistics business park
  • Truck staging and logistics centre
  • Middle-income residential development of 1 200 houses
  • High-density rental units of 200 apartments
The project is divided into five phases:
  • Phase 1: Rosslyn Gardens (700 of 1 400 houses completed)
  • Phase 2: Commercial and logistics park (key infrastructure installed and ready to start)
  • Phase 3: Truck staging area with associated facilities and filling station
  • Phase 4: Vehicle car park (including solar-topped power provision) for up to 6 500 vehicles
  • Phase 5: Rosslyn Mall (planned for 2018/19)

Project rationale

The project forms an integral component of the Tshwane Automotive City project and encapsulates a self-sufficient environment in which to live, learn, grow, work and play.
