Hyde Park Corner puts down roots with tree donation

The hallmark of a Hyde Park Corner shopping experience is the desire to repeat it!
Hyde Park Corner is the epitome of ‘fifty and fabulous’. Since 1969, when it opened as the first fully enclosed decentralized shopping centre in South Africa, this benchmark of South African retail has remained current, relevant, and diverse. Constant re-invention through a series of considered updates both in terms of tenant offering and aesthetics, has been key in consistently offering our customers the benchmark which is synonymous with the Hyde Park Corner retail experience.
Our mall’s trademark offering for discerning shoppers combines a choice of innovative brands intermingled with convenience and a refreshingly authentic flair. Hyde Park Corner’s light and spacious centre in a prime Johannesburg location is home to hundreds of international brands within 110 iconic bespoke retail stores. And because shopping and dining are synonymous with a satisfying shopping experience, six alluring restaurants cater to a diverse range of tastes and occasions, from fine dining to meze on the move.
Hyde Park Corner is the place where creativity and comfort magically connect… a place where shopping for art, antiques, superb fashion, unique homewares, or quirky craftsmanship, is a reality. The Cortina Fashion Court bears testimony to our flair for securing a distinguished blend of international iconic fashion brands and blending them perfectly with the very best in Proudly South African brands. The centre also provides a wide range of medical, dental and health professionals, high-tech banks, cinemas, travel agencies and other services – our offering follows a holistic approach to shopping.
