Logistics excellence at Riverfields

Riverfields is a premier logistics node for South Africa. The strategic location, expansive land size, and commitment to high-quality infrastructure is a key component of our offering at Riverfields. We have a thriving hub that has an established tenant base with logistics operations across the country.

Strategic location

Riverfields boasts an unbeatable location which has attracted a dynamic tenant base of both international and local businesses. Being directly on the R21 Albertina Sisulu Rd, Riverfields falls within the economic triangle. Our logistics hub connects goods to KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng, and the Free State. Vehicles can easily get on the road and access the R21, R24 and N12 highways enroute to their final destination.

The added benefit of being within 15 minutes of growing airspaces is another feather in Riverfields’ cap. The swift connection from Riverfields to OR Tambo International Airport and the Ekurhuleni Aerotropolis provides for an attractive investment for both international and local companies.

Expansive land size

In a span of just 12 years, Riverfields has undergone a truly remarkable transformation. What was once an expansive stretch of open land has undergone a profound metamorphosis into a thriving and bustling precinct. We encompass residential, leisure, commercial and logistics nodes.

Riverfields Precinct covers 1 500 hectares of land and our logistics and distributions node is an impressive 890 000sqm. The large land size enables businesses to invest in a growing logistics and distributions landscape, presenting exciting possibilities for development and expansion.

Blue-chip tenants

We are fortunate to have some of the country’s leading high-profile businesses that have invested early into our flourishing precinct. We are proud to be home to renowned blue-chip tenants such as Takealot, Foschini, DSV, John Deere, DB Schenker, Sanvick Mining, Aerial Health Services and DHL. That is not to mention a new facility for Shoprite and The Foschini Group also underway.

Equites Parks

Equites Property Fund, South Africa’s only and largest listed, logistics-focused REIT on the JSE, houses many blue-chip tenants within the logistics node at Riverfields:

  • At present Equites Park Riverfields 1 is a 16-hectare park that houses 2 international blue-chip tenants.
  • Equites Park Riverfields 2 spans 43 hectares and is occupied by 2 major retailers.
  • Equites Park Riverfields 3 covers 16 hectares and is currently in the planning phase.

The opportunity for Equites to expand their investment across 3 locations within Riverfields is a phenomenal success for both Equites and Riverfields.

High-quality infrastructure

Along with its attractive land size, we have invested in prime infrastructure for our logistics and distributions centres.


Our layered security approach is built into the infrastructure of each precinct and includes a manned gatehouse, CCTV, fencing and security procedures. We have regular patrol vehicles that take care of security around our logistics’ parks. Riverfields’ maintenance ensures roads and public amenities are well-maintained.

Inclusive precinct design

We are proud of our holistic precinct and have made strides to ensure that all our nodes feel part of the inclusive design and precinct values. This includes strong quality materials, a reliable power supply and water availability.

The Riverfields Owners Association ensures consistency in the design of the buildings and the outdoor landscaped areas. Within the logistics node, close attention is paid to amenities such as landscaping, fencing and adequate sidewalks for pedestrians.

Working with the municipality

With the support of the municipality, we have incorporated excellent municipal services that make Riverfields a well-connected destination. The accessible Gauteng bus service is one of the many collaborations with the municipality that ensures transport is close for workers.

Our managed precinct’s efficient transport options, ease of access, and comprehensive security measures are of huge benefit to tenants that choose Riverfields. As our precinct continues to flourish we are excited to see more opportunities unfold on the back of the success of our logistics and distributions centres.

We encourage you to get in touch with our team if you would like to discuss the available opportunities.
