Fontis Developments is an established property development company, which focuses on the development of retail shopping malls in rural areas. It attracts a wide variety of client-oriented tenants that already have an established customer base in the city centres, thereby bringing suppliers of essential consumer goods, clothing and furniture stores, fast-food outlets, as well as banking and pharmaceutical services, closer to the country’s large rural communities.
The success of Fontis Developments lies in the professional collaboration between experienced contractors, from the property developer, architect and quantity surveyor in the design phase, to the project managers, building contractors, and civil, mechanical, structural, electronic and electrical engineers in the implementation phase, and the air conditioning, interior design and landscaping specialists in the final phase.
The developments that carry the Fontis brand are characterised by a water fountain at the centre of each mall. Through the products and services that Fontis brings closer to the people, it succeeds in uplifting the communities and enhancing their quality of life. The communities also benefit from the developments in terms of job creation, both during the project construction phase and upon completion of the shopping mall.
The flagship development, Boitekong Mall in Rustenburg, is scheduled to open for business in April 2012, while other projects in the pipeline include developments in Mtubatuba in KwaZulu-Natal and Tonga in Mpumalanga.
