Rustenburg Mall is a state-of-the-art regional shopping mall, developed in Rustenburg, South Africa, by a partnership between Moolman Group, Twin City Development, and JB Holdings.

The 40,000m² (430,556.42ft²) shopping centre was opened in April 2021, after more than seven years of planning. Although construction was started in August 2019, the project was delayed due to problems during the pre-ground-breaking phase and lockdown enforced by the national government amidst the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

The mall serves as a one-stop shopping centre for the local community and provides a family-friendly shopping experience. It is expected to serve more than 80,000 households within suburbs such as Proteapark, Geelhoutpark, Karlienpark, Tlhabane, and Tlhabane West.

The project also upgraded road infrastructure in the region, which improved the access and traffic flow to and from the mall.
