About the Mall
In 1986 the original railway workshop for the Durban Station was refurbished and transformed into what is now known as, The Workshop Shopping Centre.
This unique and breathtaking historical landmark was constructed in 1860 and carries with it all the character and charm of the Colonial era. The original iron girders soar up to the vaulted glass roof, which now provides the framework of South Africa’s first themed Shopping Centre.
The Workshop enjoys a dynamic market welcoming shoppers from different walks of life, from African to European Cultures which add to the uniqueness of the Centre’s one of a kind offering.
