If you used to live in the Lideta area growing up, then in a few years you will not be able to recogize the area any more.

Side note: I am not sure if they are doing it, but we need to have space for kids to play, not just buildings. Most of our memories growing is not about a building its about the games we played in the neighborhood.
My prediction is that in the near future residents in Addis will have to travel outside the city on the weekends to find open space and play sports and have fun.

By erecting multi-storey buildings that are not earthquake proof in an earthquake prone region like Adisaba these 4th grade graduate woyane officials are putting the lives of hundreds of thousands in deadly danger.

Condos to go up in heart of city

The Addis Ababa City Administration is to demolish central parts of town and build condominiums in its place.
City manager, Mekuria Haile, said the area to be demolished include around Arada Sub-City, and the area from Meskal Square along Haile Gebre Selassie Avenue towards Caramara Bridge.
When the city launched its low cost housing development program five years ago, it said that it will construct condominiums in the central part of the town, mainly in place of old areas. However, the major condo constructions so far have been carried out on the outskirts of town.
"Residents ought to be cooperative for the development program of the administration, otherwise we will not be able to implement our plans on schedule," Mekuria said.
People not cooperating in leaving their homes has been one factor in the focus on constructing the apartments on the edge of town, according to Mekuria.
The city administration has demolished 6,000 properties around Lideta and Tekle Haimanot this budget year for new developments.
The forthcoming projects will necessitate the eviction of 18 hectares in Arat Kilo. .... This one hits close to home, Arat kilo was my neighborhood They are going to get rid of all those shanty houses. I think it is about time they do something new there.

A week ago, City Mayor Kuma Demeksa, put up the corner stone for the launching of a new kind of condo that will be constructed in Lideta. The buildings will contain 2,000 condos and other private buildings within the 26 hectares.
The city administration constructed these low cost flats in an attempt to solve the housing problem of the city. It has frequently been suggested that they are unaffordable for low income citizens, but Mekuria refutes this.
Mekuria said that the city administration is working to change features of the capital and he said that yesterday's program is one part of the plan.
This budget year, the city administration has begun constructing 18,000 low cost houses. At the beginning of the period, the administration announced that it will not commence new condo projects this year due to budget shortages, and instead will focus on finishing existing projects.
But only last week the city said it has the funds to commence construction of about 50,000 apartments within one year.

Lideta District | Addis Ababa

Plots in Lideta District to be Allotted to Five Companies
Quote:
Lideta District starts, this week, to give out land to investors in the recently demolished neighbourhood of Kebele 07/14 along Chad Street in front Lideta Church; five plots will be given in the first round including one that had been promised in 2004.

A total of 26ht have been cleared in the district according to the local development plan (LDP) starting January 2010. This land is to be apportioned to the winning bidders after the land arrangement has been completed, Anteneh Enchalew, general manager of the district, told Fortune.

The current allocation will be followed by more land leased over the next 15 days, according to Anteneh.

More than 2,600 residential units, shops, cafes, and restaurants, the vast majority of them in kebele owned buildings, were demolished to prepare the 26ht.

Awash International Bank and Dashen Bank will get 2,800sqm and 2,696sqm, respectively, while Zefran Plc and Dure Abbas Mohammed Plc will get 987sqm and 149sqm of land, respectively. The fifth one is an investor, whom Anteneh declined to disclose, who had been promised land for the construction of a four-star hotel. This person leased 2,333sqm through negotiation.

“The winners of the plots are already instructed to work 24 hour days to get the projects finalised soon,” Anteneh told Fortune. “This project is expected to be a model for future urban development plans in the city, so there will be serious follow-up.”
These five investors are expected to finalise the construction within two years, according to him.

All buildings at this site, to be constructed by these and other investors, are yet to be given land and will be at least four storeys high.

The vacant area will also be handling the construction of 2,300 condominiums, which are to be built at a cost of more than 200 million Br. These condos will be used for the resettlement of the residents whose houses were demolished. Some of these residents could get loans from Addis Credit and Savings SC to help them pay for the condos, according to Anteneh.

A total of 88 million Br has also been given to more than 300 private house owners as compensation, although some residents were not happy with the compensation given to them.

Is the land still empty or has the Lineta Garden City started construction already? I wouldn't want non-earthquake-proof buildings constructed in a city that is prone to earthquakes.

ADDIS ABABA | Lideta District | Under Construction

Quote:
The Addis Abeba City Administration plans to implement 14 new major renewal projects in six districts on close to 280ht of land as part of its Urban Development Plan for the 2010/11 fiscal year, while also upgrading previous development plans that were made under the Local Development Plan (LDP).

“These projects include major upgrading of underdeveloped areas in Lafto, Kirkos, Arada, and Lideta areas and some pockets of underdeveloped areas found in the relatively developed Bole and Yeka districts,” Anteneh Enchalew, head of Land and Urban Renewal Projects Studies, Design, and Implementation Follow-up Sub Process, told Fortune.

Although the city has been implementing renewal and development plans according to the LDP, the administration has adopted a new detailed Urban Development Plan. Under this plan, buildings have consistent plot usage, specified width according to the area they are located in, and specifications on parking lot usage, according to Anteneh.

The plan also entails specifications on how trash receptacles and street advertisements are placed. It also envisions to do away with digging on the city’s sidewalks by different authorities and to create an integrated approach to the laying of utility lines.

It aims to create cooperation between the Ethiopian Electric Power Cooperation (EEPCo), Addis Abeba Water and Sewerage Authority (AAWSA), and Ethiopian Telecommunications Corporation (ETC) so they can implement their projects in a specific area at the same time, according to Anteneh.

In addition, the administration aims to undertake beautification of the city by planting trees and various plants as part of the Urban Development Plan. These details will be included in projects that had been planned during previous years but whose implementation will only take place this year.

Under the Land Development and Urban Renewal Plan (LDURP), the city Administration had planned to clear a total of 70ht for development in Lideta, Kirkos, and Arada districts in the 2010/11 fiscal year. This was in addition to the 120ht planned to be cleared in 2009/10 fiscal year that is yet to be implemented.

“The detailed Urban Development Plan will be implemented in the renewal of Basha Wolde Chelot area in Arada District,” said Anteneh told Fortune about the area which the city started clearing two weeks ago.

Hope the work gets done, so don't need a Urban Renewal Plan 2.0 next year that "plans" to implement these two previous plans.

Also, do anyone remember the name of that Swiss company that was contracted to do a urban planning for Addis?

Lideta Land up for Lease for Third Time





Quote:
Land Authority prefers the land to be used for large commercial projects that fit
the urban design plan


The Addis Abeba City Administration is attempting to lease 2.3ht of land to investors for a third time, despite a disappointing response to the last two tenders from would-be developers.

The tender for the lease of the land, located on the main road in front of the Lideta Church and Lideta High Court, was first floated in 2009/10.

The announcement was made in Addis Lissan newspaper, the official mouthpiece of the city administration, on September 25, 2010. Yet, only seven tender documents had been sold by Friday, October 8, 2010.

The district wants investors to construct buildings of five to 12 storeys on the site in accordance with the urban design plan.

If the land had been apportioned in small pieces, the city could have made more money from more investors, according to Mekonnen Kechara, the head of Land Lease Sub Process of the Addis Abeba City Administration Land Administration and Construction Permit Authority. However, the authority would rather lease the land to fewer investors with larger projects that fit the urban design plan.

The plot that is to be leased will only be used for commercial buildings, which brings the lease term down to 50 years, unlike the 99 years given to residential buildings.

A total of 26ht of land have been cleared in Lideta District, out of which 5.45ht has been leased to 81 developers, including Awash International and Dashen banks, business people, and residents of the area. Awash International and Dashen banks have leased 2,800sqm and 2,696sqm, respectively.

More than 2,600 residential units, shops, cafés, and restaurants, the vast majority of them in kebele owned buildings, were demolished to clear the site. The city is undertaking the construction of condominiums with 2,300 housing units at a cost of 200 million Br. Residents whose houses have been demolished will be resettled in these buildings.

Loans could be extended to these residents through Addis Credit and Savings SC to help them pay for the condominiums, according to Halewe Kedir, officer of the Land Lease Transfer Office of Lideta District. As compensation, 88 million Br has been given to more than 300 private home owners.

Flintstone Shells out 11.1m Br for Lideta Plot
Quote:

Only one of the six other plots on the 2.3ht drew a bidder at the third auction

Flintstone Engineering won the tender to lease a 1,848.96sqm plot in Lideta District, one of the seven plots the Land Administration and Build Permit Authority of the Addis Abeba City Administration has floated for the third time, with an offer of 11.1 million Br on Wednesday, October 13, 2010, to construct luxurious condominium houses.

The City Administration failed to attract bidders for the total 2.3ht, apportioned into seven plots, which it had put up for tender on two previous occasions. The third tender that was floated on September 25, saw seven bidders, including Flintstone, for the one plot; a sole bidder, Yetebaberut Petroleum, for another plot; and none for the rest.

The offer made by Yetebaberut Petroleum was rejected because there has to be at least three bidders, according to the lease directive.

Flintstone came out the winner with a bid of 6,020 Br per square metre for the 1,848.96sqm plot, of which the minimum bid was 1,051.88 Br per square metre, for a lease of 50 years. The company is expected to pay 20pc of the bid within 10 days of signing the contract and the rest over 20 years after a two-year grace period, according to the bid document. It is also expected to put a 2.6 million Br performance bond in a blocked account until it has completed construction to the amount’s worth.

“This is to ensure that developers who take land actually go through with their planned projects,” Halewe Kedir, an officer in the Lideta District Land Lease Transfer Office, told Fortune.

Each of these plots, located on the main road in front of Lideta Church and Lideta High Court, is meant for commercial buildings and is available on a 50-year lease.

“We are going to construct two blocks with up to 70 units of luxury condominiums with shop space on the ground floor,” Tsedeke Yehune (Eng), owner of Flintstone Engineering, told Fortune. “The seven-storey blocks are projected to cost 85 million Br and are expected to be finished within two years.”

Although Flintstone, which was established in 1991 with 5,000 Br capital, has not yet determined how much to charge for the condominiums, it will not be as cheap as other condominium housing, according to Tsedeke.

The company, which has increased its registered capital to one million Birr since its establishment, plans to select consultants to design the condominiums and to offer them for sale once the working design has been finalised.

A total of 26ht of land have been cleared in Lideta District, out of which 5.45ht have been leased to 81 developers, including banks, business people, and residents of the area. Awash International (AIB) and Dashen banks have leased 2,800sqm and 2,696sqm, respectively.

More than 2,600 residential units, shops, cafés, and restaurants, of which the vast majority were in kebele owned houses, have been demolished to clear the site. The city is undertaking the construction of condominiums with 2,300 housing units at a cost of 200 million Br in which residents whose houses have been demolished are to be resettled. In addition, 88 million Br has been given to more than 300 private home owners as compensation.

Here is a nice video about the ongoing plan/construction: http://www.ethiotube.net/video/13059...cation-project

They talk about adding green areas as well like 2 hectares worth (4 or 5 acres, 200,000 sq ft.+). [Video in Amharic] It looks like the project in Arada (Basha Wolde) is progressing as well.



a few printscreens from the video:







I hope those residents get some good compensation though, many of them have good points. Hopefully they can continue to live on the land if they have been living their most of their lives, maybe give them some money to build new homes in that same area.
