Five new parks underway



Quote:
By Tesfaye Getnet
Monday, 23 June 2014 06:41

Even though there have been many roads and buildings constructed in the last ten years, there have not been many parks.

As part of the Growth and Transformation Plan, the Addis Ababa Beautification Park and Cemetery Development Agency (BPCDA) planned to construct five new parks. These included: Ledeta, Basha Wolde, Nation and Nationality Square, and the parks beside Economic Commission for Africa and the Holland Embassy. So far only the 12,000sqm Ledeta Park has been completed, at a cost of 26 million birr.

The other four parks are below forty percent complete. There has recently been the beginning of reconstruction of two parks Ethio-Cuba and Akaki Kaliti.

Including the two parks that are being refurbished Addis Ababa has allocated 300 million birr. Akaki is 62,518sq.m and is being built at a cost of 59 million birr. The 27,226s.qm Ethio-Cuba is the cheapest at 9 million birr.

BPCDA Deputy Manger Dereje Ejeta told Capital, “We didn’t have any problems with planning, the difficulty we faced was that there were few people with experience in building parks here, we wasted almost two years posting tenders repeatedly trying to find the right contractor, now the issue has been resolved and all of the parks are under construction.”

[...]

Some of the new parks will feature shops, swimming pools, tennis courts, cafeterias and fountains. The agency is waiting for a response from a government construction agency to tender out the redesigns of Afincho Ber, Hamlae 19,and Behare Tsegae parks.

[..]

ADDIS ABABA | Crowne Plaza Hotel Addis Ababa | Planned

http://www.ethiosports.com/2014/09/0...l-in-ethiopia/

IHG Expands in Africa with First Hotel in Ethiopia
Published On Tuesday, September 09, 2014 By Mamo Gebrehiwot. Under: Addis Ababa, Hospitality, Hotels. Tags: Addis Ababa, Crowne Plaza, Ethiopia, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), Pascal Gauvin, Rezene Ayalew, Tsemex Hotels and Business
Press Release

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has signed a management agreement with Tsemex Hotels and Business Plc to develop Crowne Plaza Addis Ababa. The 210-key hotel represents the entry of IHG into Ethiopia and adds to the company’s growing presence in Africa.



Crowne Plaza Addis Ababa is situated near significant landmarks including the African Union headquarters, African Union Convention Centre, the headquarters of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa and the United Nations Convention Centre. It is also located close to one of the largest international communities in the city. The new hotel will feature an all-day dining restaurant, a speciality restaurant and a bar. Guests can enjoy facilities such as the health club and spa, or kick back with a drink at the bar by the swimming pool.

Catering to the business traveller, Crowne Plaza Addis Ababa will also offer a range of meeting facilities including a boardroom, seven large meeting rooms as well as ballroom for larger events. A business centre is also available for guests who require access to business facilities on the go.

Pascal Gauvin, Chief Operating Officer, India, Middle East and Africa, IHG, said: “Addis Ababa is evolving at pace, with infrastructure such as the Bole International Airport now serving almost 20 million passengers a year. We’re always on the lookout for the right partner to grow our brands in the right location. Now we’re bringing Crowne Plaza to a new country with Tsemex Hotels and Business Plc. Crowne Plaza Addis Ababa is a strong addition to the brand and with this being our first hotel in Ethiopia we will now have a presence in 13 countries across Africa.”

Mr. Rezene Ayalew, Managing Director, Tsemex Hotels and Business Plc, said: “We own a number of real estate developments and with this being our first venture into hospitality, we couldn’t have asked for a better partner to embark on this project with. Addis Ababa has great potential for tourism but is currently under-supplied in catering to business travellers and meetings and events. The Crowne Plaza brand comes highly recommended with a unique positioning for the business market and we believe this is the right brand to bring into our vibrant city.”

IHG currently has 29 hotels open on the continent of Africa across five brands: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Staybridge Suites. The new development marks the sixth Crowne Plaza hotel in Africa. Across Asia, Middle East and Africa there are 68 Crowne Plaza hotels and resorts totalling more than 19,000 rooms, with an additional 16 due to open in the next three to five years.

Wyndham Hotel Group Grows in Africa with First Hotel in Ethiopia




Quote:
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (Sept. 30, 2014) – Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company with approximately 7,540 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN), today announced the signing of a management agreement for the Hotel Group’s first property in Ethiopia, the 136-room Ramada Addis.

Upon opening in the first half of next year, Ramada Addis will offer 128 guest rooms and eight suites, ideally located on a major transport route linking the city centre with Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.

The addition of Ramada Addis expands Wyndham Hotel Group into its seventh market on the African continent and follows an announcement just last week that the company plans to introduce its flagship Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® brand to Kenya. With more than 940 rooms now in the pipeline across Africa, Wyndham Hotel Group is set to more than double its presence in the region over the next three years.

While the company was historically focused on franchise contracts within Africa, much of Wyndham Hotel Group’s recent growth has been fuelled by the company’s strategic decision to expand its management services into the region.

“Not only can we offer diverse branding solutions through our spectrum of hotel brands and strong onward distribution through our sheer global scale, we also offer owners the flexibility of either franchise or management contracts,” said Bani Haddad, Wyndham Hotel Group’s regional vice president for the Middle East and Africa. “This enables us to work with valued partners such as ADM Business Plc, who share our passion for providing great guest experiences and our vision to ensure the Ramada® brand continues to act as a benchmark for midscale hospitality in the region.”

Wyndham Hotel Group’s existing portfolio on the continent includes five hotels and 819 rooms operated via franchise agreements under the Ramada and Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham® brands across Ghana, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia. The group’s pipeline now comprises of two hotels in Kenya, one each under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts and Ramada brand flags, two Ramada hotels in Tanzania and a further Ramada hotel in Nigeria, in addition to Ramada Addis in Ethiopia. Once these hotels open, the group’s African presence will span almost 2,000 rooms across three brands and seven countries.

“ADM Business Plc is proud to partner with Wyndham Hotel Group to introduce the fourth international hotel brand to one of the most vibrant and economically robust cities of Africa,” said Adugna Bekele, owner of the Ramada Addis. “We are deeply privileged to be part of the country’s ever-growing tourism industry and we believe this partnership will bring world class service to the capital. Once open, Ramada Addis will create job opportunities for over 250 people, serve Africa’s capital city to host its multitude of conference attendees and play a vital role in bringing foreign investment into the market.”

All of Wyndham Hotel Group’s properties in Africa participate in Wyndham Rewards®, the company’s free-to-join guest loyalty programme, which allows members to earn valuable points during their stay. Points may be redeemed for a wide variety of reward options including free hotel stays, air travel, gift cards for leading retailers and more. Information is available at www.wyndhamrewards.com.

There is inprovement what will have an inpact for everyone i guess like all the new roads, railnetwork, lightrail, new jobs...

But here something else:


Ethiopia: Nation to Build Human Origin Museum


Quote:
The National Museum of Ethiopia is going to build a new museum dedicated totally for exhibiting human evolution, skeleton and tools.

Ethiopia, being home to Lucy and Ardi and oldest stone tools, the museum will help to display the fossils and stones discovered within the territory of the country.

The 10-storey building will stand on 4,500 meter cube plot and consume 260 million Birr, movable heritages director at the Museum, Mamitu Ylma said.

The museum, named human origin museum, will be built in front of the national museum.

Building a museum is important to fully display archeological findings, which are among the oldest in the world, she noted.

The first fossils of modern humans and first stone tools were discovered in Ethiopia.

The Omo I and II, Lucy and Ardi are among the oldest human fossils found in the territory of Ethiopia.

The ever increasing number of visitors interested in the archeological findings is also another reason to build the museum, the director said.

"Currently, archeological findings are being displayed in one floor at the national museum. The skeleton and tools being displayed at the museum is very small compared to the total findings," she added.

Referred as the 'Cradle of Man Kind', Ethiopia is home for some of the famous and iconic hominid fossils and tools.

The architecture of the museum will be able to show that the country is the origin of human beings, Mamitu said.

The Omo I and II partial skull and skeleton, dating to 195,000 years, found near the Omo River are thought to be the oldest examples of Homo sapiens.

Lucy, a hominid skeleton dating to 3.2 million years ago is the most famous hominid fossil ever found. Unearthing approximately 40 percent of the skeleton, Lucy's discovery was extraordinary and provided an enormous amount of scientific evidence to human evolution.

The first collection of fossil had also discovered in Ethiopia in 1975, a year after Lucy's discovery. The collection, representing as many as 17 individuals, including adults and youngsters, was dubbed the 'First Family".

Older than Lucy, Ardi unearthed between 1992 and 1994, is the most complete skeleton of an early hominid.

Ethiopia is also home for the oldest stone tools. Stone tools aged 2.6 million years, were unearthed between 1992 and 1994.
