If you're looking for a place to do your grocery shopping, have a meal or a snack, meet friends, and park free of charge, then visit this community shopping centre on Rivonia Road directly opposite Alon Road (Fouche Motors, formerly Kunene Brothers BMW).

There's a Woolworths Food (now open again) downstairs alongside Clicks.  Morningside 011 by the Baron, a new restaurant, is open.  The upstairs anchor tenants are now the Spar, Spar Tops, Morningside Dispensary and the Chinese restaurant.  The Planet Fitness gym is open in its own block at the top left.

GPS Coordinates: -26.07522, 28.06481. Open air parking is free of charge: Only street level parking is accessible at present.

In mid-2011 the Wedge had a rebranding exercise and a new logo, and a bit of a spruce-up.  In late 2016 expansion of the parking started with the excavation of the upper parking area down to below ground level and, by mid 2017, the construction of underground parking therein.  Back in June 2016, the estimated completion date was October 2017. Unfortunately the alleged "Marketing Agency" gives no information on progress, so we can only guess what the new target is. Construction is largely complete as at July 2018; the remaining tenants seemed to have their final locations, and new shops have moved in.

Why is it called the Wedge?

The simple reason is that it's on a wedge-shaped stand.  The more sinister explanation is that this rezoning was the "thin end of the wedge" of commercial development in this residential area, long fought-against by residents, but eventually lost to an uncaring ANC-dominated municipality greedy for extra income.
