The business centre in Eikestad Mall is in one of the best-positioned office buildings in the historic core of Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa. The mall was originally built for retail use and has in recent years been transformed into a beautiful mixed-use site with commercial office, high-end retail, residential, leisure and medical facilities. The business centre has it's own dedicated entrance. As well as being known as the most scenically attractive and historically preserved town in southern Africa, Stellenbosch is a centre for ‘clean' industry and is a sought-after location for business, ranging from entrepreneurs to major international companies, many of which have their head office in the town. The Western Cape region's robust economic performance is generated by its famous wine production, winning many international awards, along with a diverse range of activities including agriculture, construction, wholesale and retail, financial and business services and niche manufacturing activities as well as property development and tourism.
