Will the airport city development replace the CBD in terms of office space?

I think it will complement the CBD, it will just become an alternative although i do believe its going to become the preferred address. However it will be more expensive to rent than the CBD which means that only the rich companies are going to afford Airport City rentals.

I have heard much about Accra and seen a few pictures. Accra does not seem a modern city. A lot of the improvements have been within the old sectors, which is a very good thing. These day's the trend has been to develop satellite towns off the main city, in this case Accra. I have seen a few pictures of Airport City, but there does not seem to be a rapid expansion of this area. I may be wrong.

IMO, i think that accra should concetrate the building of new buildings to one common area so as to have a C.B.D a big city such as accra really needs a cbd bcoz then its one area that can me easily managed instead of a large area that makes it really hard to keep things well managed.

The public authorities in most African countries are not dealing with the issue of traffic congestion, crime and grime effectively and this results in developers fleeing the CBD in search of new locations. Solve access roads by building highways, keep the CBD clean and safe, then the developers will come. Also government must have faith in the CBD by investing in it themselves. Build new shiny office towers for the public servants and for the state owned companies, fix the pavements, fix the taxi ranks and markets, then the private sector will reciprocate this generously. Simple and straight forward.

you point out some very simple points that if implemented they would bare almost immediate fruits. for a country that is soon to become an african economic giant ghana needs some sort of a CBD like, abidjan or nairobi. but one thing that ghana is famous for is friendly people.

oh and btw, nairobi CBD is relatively clean but more needs to be done and they said that it have a metropolitant police dept just for the cbd alone by the end of this year, which is great news.
