The Protea Glen Mall is a shopping mall in Protea Glen, in Soweto, Gauteng, South Africa, which opened in September 2012[1][2]

Built at a cost of approximately R360-380 million, the mall is located at the intersection of R558 and Protea Boulevard in the centre of Protea Glen,[2] and has over 90 tenants.[3][4][5][6]

Background[edit]

Mike Nkuna, chairman of developer Masingita Group, first conceived of placing a mall in Protea Glen in 2005,[7] as residents had been traveling to Lenasia for their shopping.[8] It is the first mall located in the Johannesburg suburb, which has only been developed since the 1990s. It has been the sixth mall to open in Soweto.[9] Locally, it is considered notable for having both rival supermarket retailers Pick n Pay and Shoprite among its tenants.[10]
