Our History

The Frater Square building dates back to 1845, and is part of the farm Hou Moed.  Over the last century the building was utilised 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. Renovation was closely monitored to retain the building’s original historical feel, and most materials were recycled and used in the renovation.

Frater Square Lifestyle Centre is a unique shopping experience you won’t find anywhere else in the beautiful Paarl valley.
