'Only a heart attack would stop me'- Township mall owner Jason McCormick on Exemplar's Mamelodi development
Township mall owner Jason McCormick joins BizNews founder Alec Hogg days after presenting at the BizNews Investment Conference. McCormick and his family are majority shareholders in JSE-listed Exemplar REIT, a property company focused on shopping malls and convenience centres in rural and township South Africa. The McCormick's property empire was ravaged a few months ago as widespread looting and vandalisation took many parts of KZN and Gauteng hostage. Although McCormick admits there is scar tissue, he's looking for further avenues of growth and is developing a shopping centre in the heart of Mamelodi.
