With some 55 retail outlets including 14 food stalls and a hypermarket, as well as 2 kids corners, Riche Terre Mall offers an enjoyable lifestyle experience beyond mere shopping.
Due to its convenient location of the Riche Terre roundabout, on the M2 motorway that links the northern part of the island to the south, the Riche Terre Mall is easily accessible from any part of the island.
In addition, the newly constructed Terre Rouge-Verdun Road enhances access to the mall from the centre of the island.
The first shopping mall of its kind in the Northern area, it contributed in uplifting the bland industrial landscape of Riche Terre and in bringing a whole new shopping experience to communities within its catchment area and beyond.
In 2008, the mall was acquired by Foresite Property through its property fund, Ascencia Ltd. The shopping mall had reached the ageing stage of its life cycle and was in need of a major facelift, calling for an infusion of fresh energy and renewed vibrancy, especially in a fast-changing retail landscape and the emergence of new shopping centres throughout the island. The management therefore undertook an extensive redevelopment project in 2012 with the aim of giving a fresh and contemporary look as well as enhancing the functionality of the mall.
A brand new visual identity was developed around a central theme, the ‘Oasis’, and the mall was rebranded Riche Terre Mall. The logo featuring a Phoenix palm leaf is a reflection of this ‘Oasis’ concept. Several species of palm trees were integrated in the new landscaping. The leaf pattern is also subtly present in the architecture through wall cladding.
The new shopping ‘Oasis’ skilfully combines a fresh and contemporary architectural design with functional convenience, vitality, accessibility and an appealing tenant mix.
With some 55 retail outlets, the mall caters for all needs.
It offers a diversified tenant mix from the budget shopping of factory shops and local products to the high-end branded shops and international brands.
Winner of two awards from the prestigious International Property Award in 2013, Riche Terre Mall was commended ‘Best Commercial Renovation/Redevelopment’ both in Mauritius and in Africa.
Acquired in 2008, the Riche Terre Mall is owned by Ascencia Ltd.
Ascencia is the largest property fund listed on the Stock Exchange of Mauritius, with a property asset base of Rs: 4.9 billion. The fund’s portfolio also includes the Bagatelle Mall of Mauritius and the award-winning Centre Commercial Phoenix, Kendra Shopping Mall and Les Allées D’Helvetia Commercial Centre.
