THE MALL

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.

GETTING THERE

Riche Terre is a mainly industrial area located about 5km north of the capital, Port Louis.

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.

HISTORY

Formerly known as the Centre Commercial de Riche Terre, the mall opened its doors in 2003.

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.

The
New 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.

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.

International
Recognition

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.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

In redesigning the new Riche Terre Mall, the management has taken steps towards reducing its impact on the environment namely:

Energy consumption

Skylights in the ceiling provide natural lighting throughout the mall, hence reducing the need for electric lighting during the day. Only low energy consumption lightings, in particular, LED lights are used for general and external lighting.

Ventilation

The high ceilings aid towards a better air circulation throughout the mall and contribute to provide thermal comfort and good indoor air quality.

Landscaping

During the redevelopment of the landscaping, many trees were uprooted and transplanted for re-use. Moreover, some 2500 plants have been introduced in the landscaping, including various species of palm trees to reflect the Oasis concept.

Water recycling

Rainwater harvesting systems have been installed for irrigation purposes. Hand basins fitted with percussion taps prevent water wastage in restrooms.
