Our commitment to providing modern urban infrastructure and retail property solutions on the continent plays a substantial role in the growth and development of the local economies we invest in. 


Economic: Not only do our projects inject money into local economies through job creation, but they also create sustainable economic ecosystems that can continue generating revenue indefinitely by supporting independent businesses. 

Environment: We strive to minimize the negative environmental impact of retail assets through strategies that reduce carbon emissions, sustain biodiversity and decrease over-reliance on scarce resources. 

Governance: Foremost in Terrace Africa’s operational priorities is the need for ethical conduct and good governance, which means continually striving for best practices and having a zero-tolerance policy for corruption. 

Societal: Developing infrastructure that promotes community upliftment and drives happier, healthier lives is at the centre of Terrace Africa’s business. 


At the heart of Terrace Africa’s work is the provision of new commercial infrastructure that creates local economic upliftment, supports small local businesses, and fosters entrepreneurship.
