This property offers a re-development opportunity on a site that has a total extent of 4 003 m². There are developments on the properties which are old and vandalized and as such the main focus on this opportunity is re-development. The existing retail facility positioned at 65 Wood Road, Montclair, was previously occupied by SPAR and then by Multi Save, however it was looted during the July 2021 unrest. Thereafter the Seller had no intention of re-instating the property to its original condition. As such, the existing retail component is sold as is. No access was obtained into the existing retail facility. The existing retail facility has ample 3-phase power supply which was the sufficient amount required by a Super SPAR and Muti Save.
There are 2 dilapidated old residential dwellings with some garages that are positioned on 20 Henley Road and 170 Roland Chapman Drive. No access was obtained into these dwellings. The properties’ location is ideal for national or provincial retailers such as Checkers, SPAR, Pick n Pay, Boxer, Save Rite, Check Mart etc. The site is flat and having frontages to 3 roads will be convenient for such a retail organization with ample parking and easy accessibility. In 2010, SPAR did show the initiative to convert the Kwik Spar to a Super Spar and went through the process of drawing up layout proposed plans for the property. Other much needed amenities and retailers required in area include hardware franchises such as Build It, Jabulani Hardware, Builders Warehouse etc. With the property being zoned Limited Commercial, other opportunities include food chains such as Jwaylani, Chester Meats, Bluff Meats and Cambridge.
