Members of the project management team of the Renaissance Partners, which is undertaking a new development project at Appolonia, in the Kpone-Katamanso constituency, dubbed "Mixed-Used Development Project", on Saturday held a public consultation on the project.

The public consultation is to inform residence in the village and the general public of the project, also known as Appolonia City project and its implications on the environment, and lives in the neighbouring communities.

The outcome of the public hearing will among other things help the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take a decision as to whether the project should be permitted to start.

The Appolonia City project, when completed, will benefit the communities and their surroundings in the areas of employment creation, the realization of Ghana's development agenda, support for commercial activities in the Greater Accra region and contribution to the realization of the country's urban policy.

The project, which is being developed on an approximately 2,000 acres of land within the Appolonia community is expected to house over 80,000 residence in a modernized city expected and would be completed in the next 10 years.

The project is constructed to provide facilities that serve a variety of purposes and combining residential (including high, medium and low density residential neighbourhood) with commercial, industrial, institutional, recreational and other land uses.

Speaking at the public hearing, Mr. Joseph Hayford, CEO for Multicad consultancy, who is also the project Architect, said a mixed-used development was chosen to enable the creation of an attractive and sustainable environment that promotes economic activity and vitality, social equity and environmental quality.

"It was realized that when jobs, housing and commercial activities are closely sited, a community's options increase. Each activity gains a lot from the other activities close by. In addition to mixed-used developments which tend to have higher property value", he said.

The local residents asked questions that bothered them, as far as the project was concerned, to which Mr. Hayford provided answers.

Appolonia–City of Light Completes FAT For Power Station Equipment
Appolonia – City of Light, the mixed-use, mixed-income development located in Greater Accra, has completed the factory acceptance test (FAT) for power substation equipment to provide electricity to the project and its residents.
33-11kV GIS FAT- APPOLONIA_002As part of a comprehensive agreement with Best & Crompton Engineering that includes the design, supply, installation and commissioning of power infrastructure, City of Light will receive the 33/11kV substation equipment and a 20/26MW power transformer for the project in a month’s time.
“The delivery of the power substation equipment is a significant milestone in the development of Appolonia – City of Light,” said Anthony Okyere, Director of Appolonia Development Company Limited. “Our recently launched residential phase, Nova Ridge, will be the first beneficiary of this infrastructure investment, which will also serve future phases in both the residential and commercial areas.”
Commenting on the agreement, Mr N Ravisankar, Managing Director of Best & Crompton, said, “We are pleased to provide world-class power equipment to such a unique and transformational development in Ghana. Our decades of experience and reputation for delivery in this sector make us a natural partner for Appolonia – City of Light.”
The power transformer, manufactured in India by Crompton Greaves Limited, was designed in collaboration with Electricity Company of Ghana – a unique demonstration of a private sector-led expenditure in close cooperation with a Ghanaian public utility.
“Appolonia – City of Light is a pioneer in urban planning in Ghana, and we appreciate their close collaboration,” said Ing Julius Kpekpena, Director of Engineering at the Electricity Company of Ghana.
The substation will be commissioned in Ghana in the coming months, with full power supply expected by the end of the year.
Nova Ridge, the first residential phase of City of Light, launched sales in March, offering fully serviced plots with clean land title, and ample outdoor space.

80,000 residence in a modernized city expected and would be completed in the next 10 years. 10 years just for 80,000? Seems something heavily wrong with the business model supporting this deal. It will start bright and dim down, because frankly, it's a no brainer that the state of the economy is equally affecting the projections, and that makes it a risky project.
I love the project concept, and yes this is what we need. But this is the reason the Government must sit up. Not just government but the leadership in Ghana must all wake up with some very strong peer support program to prop each other up. If we have more of this project springing up, more likely it will mean also upping the quality of life of our middle class folks, and then also influencing the villages around them to equally rise.
