Behind the successful Riverside Park development lies Halls Properties. In 1995, Halls offered to donate land, strategically located in spectacular surroundings, to the provincial government, with a view to securing capital city status for Nelspruit.  With the development of the landmark government complex, additional anchor developments were quick to follow, notably the Riverside Mall and Tsogo Sun Casino.


Phase 1 of the Riverside Park Precinct expanded rapidly to include various motor dealerships (Volvo, General Motors, Ford, Mazda and BMW), as well as offices and the Riverside Junction shopping centre,  This was quickly followed by the launch of Phase 2 in 2007 with the construction of Mercedes Benz and Builder’s Warehouse.  In 2010, Makro entered the precinct and The Grove shopping centre, anchored by a Super Spar, was opened.  Again, take-up in Phase 2 was rapid and only a few stands remain available in this development phase.  In June 2018, Riverside Ext 35 and 36, the first of the Phase 3 townships, were proclaimed. These townships have extensive residential development rights which bring a much-needed dimension to the mixed use node.


With a keen awareness of good stewardship, Halls Properties has ensured that the development of Riverside Park is undertaken in a responsible and sustainable manner, guided by precinct development plans and manuals.  The establishment of the Riverside City Improvement District (CID) ensures that residents, shoppers, investors and visitors have access to a clean, safe precinct with world-class services.


Halls’ commitment and responsibility to the precinct remains firmly intact and the well-managed Riverside CID will be expanded during 2018/19 to include the Phase 3 townships, ensuring that this precinct remains a vibrant, mixed use destination, attractive to investors and visitors alike.

Mbombela, (‘a lot of people in a small place’ in Siswati), is the fast developing provincial capital of Mpumalanga. Set in the Lowveld, on the edge of the escarpment, Mbombela is home to the provincial legislature, the Mpumalanga High Court and the University of Mpumalanga. The four biggest South African banks have their provincial headquarters in the city while UNISA has a regional office and the Tshwane University of Technology a satellite campus.

Serving as a gateway to some of the best destinations and tourist attractions in Southern Africa, Mbombela has it all – live, work, shop, education and play located close to world-renowned conservation tourist areas such as the Kruger National Park, and the warm, sandy beaches and superb fishing of Mozambique. Granite outcrops with spectacular views of one of the region’s major industries, agriculture, and a warm, mild climate, make Mbombela an ideal place to live and work.

The Maputo Corridor slices through the city’s edge, maintaining Mbombela’s unique position on an important trade route, and the area is served by Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. Growth in the residential, commercial and industrial property sectors is fast-paced as people move to the area for lifestyle and work opportunities. International and domestic tourism has long been a staple industry in the region and Mbombela is well established to welcome visitors. 

The Place of the Rising Sun, Mpumalanga stretches from the dry, dusty heights of the Highveld coalfields to the lushly abundant Lowveld and is home to the Maputo Corridor, a vital trade route linking Gauteng and the deep-water Port of Maputo in Mozambique. The provincial government has identified strategic sectors primed for profitable investment:

  • Tourism
  • Agriculture
  • Infrastructure
  • Manufacturing

Over 1 million tourists visit the Mpumalanga Lowveld annually to enjoy the magnificent landscape and world renowned game reserves. The hospitality industry is a significant contributor to economic growth in the province.

The investment sun rises ever higher in Mpumalanga as the province strides towards reaching its considerable economic potential.
