Property Development BR Properties (Pty) Ltd is a 100% subsidiary of BR whose core mandate is to unlock the potential of BR’s real estate through sound property management and development practices. BR Properties (Pty) Ltd came about from the revision of the Botswana Railways Act in 2004, which allowed for commercialization of Botswana Railways’ land. BR Properties (Pty) Ltd was established as a vehicle to exploit Botswana Railways prime land along commercial lines by partnering with private sector, individuals and public institutions / organizations with up to date property management practices. The company manages existing Botswana Railways property by maintaining and developing the property for leasing and renting. In April 2012 BR Properties (Pty) Ltd opened Rail Park Mall in Gaborone on an 8-hectarce piece of Botswana Railways land. The Rail Park Mall was developed in partnership with the private sector. BR Properties (Pty) is also looking to build a similar shopping malls in Francistown and other places to commercially exploit Botswana Railways land with private partners.
