- The mall was opened to the public on 28 April 2016 and resulted in heavy traffic congestion along the N1, N3 highways as well as most roads leading towards the area. Some stores had opening day sales that drew hundreds of shoppers into queues extending around the corners of the shops entrance. There were over 100 000 shoppers.
- The inside decor takes its inspiration from the forests of central Africa, the great lakes in the east of the continent, the oil and trade of the west, the sand of the North African desert and the mineral wealth of southern Africa.
