core mission is to create viable,
well-planned retail developments
Tintswalo Property Group was established in 1975 as Century Retail Developments; Ernest and Gaye Corbett, the founders, primarily developed retail shopping centres in rural areas. The group was joined by Warwick and Lisa Goosen (née Corbett) who together with Gaye and Ernest started the 5-star Tintswalo Lodge Collection in 2003. The three 5-star lodges are Tintswalo Safari Lodge: in the Greater Kruger Park, Tintswalo at Waterfall: in Kyalami and Tintswalo Atlantic: on Chapman’s Peak Drive, Cape Town. All three are individually unique in location and design.
In each of its retail centres, the group has developed valuable assets of enduring quality and integrity. The family’s thorough understanding of the unique South African context and its core principles of financial feasibility and sustainability, combined with design and aesthetic vision, consistently make for sound property investment opportunities throughout South Africa.
With the current rebranding of Century Retail Developments to Tintswalo Property Group the group has expanded the staff complement – with in-house architecture, letting and project management capabilities – and is vigorously expanding with more retail centres under construction and advanced planning entailing over 100,000 m2 of gross lettable area. The group is confident of the future of retail and this wonderful country.
The Tintswalo Property Group’s core mission is to create viable, well-planned retail developments, resulting in happy tenants, enhanced communities and increasing value for all stakeholders.
