The Frater Square building dates back to 1845, and is part of the farm Hou Moed. Over the last century, the building was utilized in a variety of ways, including being used as a pack shed for fruit and farm implements.
The location of this historic building – at the entrance of Paarl main road – made it ideal for retail development. After several years of planning by the owners, Gerard and Yvette Frater, their dream of a lifestyle mall was completed. The renovation was closely monitored to retain the building’s original historical feel, and most materials were recycled and used in the process.
Frater Square Lifestyle Centre is a unique shopping experience you won’t find anywhere else in the beautiful Paarl valley.
