The new Irene Link retail mall in the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality brings you the best of both worlds, integrating 75 000m² of developable commercial space comprising 15 000m² of prime convenience retail, as well as 60 000m² of P-grade office space, to create a highly productive working environment on the doorstep of everyday essentials.

Situated next to Irene Security Estate

The mall forms part of phase 2 of Abland’s R2 billion Irene Link smart precinct development, which began construction in 2019. The 75 000m² mixed-use precinct is situated next to Irene Security Estate in Doringkloof and is already home to several commercial buildings, including the Barloworld Logistics head office and other campus-like offices.

Centralised precinct development

Irene Link, a world-class destination, is the ideal place where customers and tenants live, work and play in one connected hub – thus bringing you the best of both worlds. It is a naturally connected precinct, seamlessly combining retail, residential and lifestyle amenities into one centralised location.

The first and only underground shooting range in South Africa

It was developed in partnership with Giflo Developments and the SOM Group. The centre has the only 200m underground shooting range in the country.

Irene Arms is a gun and outdoor shop with a coffee shop offering. It also has a ten-lane, 25m indoor hand weapon shooting as well as a ten lane, 200m indoor rifle shooting range.

Abland’s managing director, Jurgens Prinsloo, says: “We are also designing a Green Star rated precinct from the ground up and each building on its own is Green Star rated. This will include back-up water and power, with renewable solar energy.”

There are also plans for a future Gautrain station and bus stations in the vicinity, which is expected to augment interest in the node.


Barloworld Logistics is the first tenant of the smart precinct, so the hustle of urban life is already being harmoniously integrated into the peaceful lifestyle of Irene. Enhancing the precinct feel will be commercial offices, retail, hotel, medical and educational offerings.
