ACCRA LANDMARK
ACCRA - GHANA - 2010
The site lies directly along the coast of the Gulf of Guinea in central, downtown Accra. Based on the existing development programme provided by the client, the project is being developed as an urban mixed-use scheme.
The concept consists of a combination of traditional mixed-use components (residential, office, retail), set within a contemporary scheme intended to bring a new-found sense of vibrancy and energy to Accra’s urban core. To complement the primary land uses, we proposed a range of entertainment and leisure components that would cater to the on-site residential and office communities as well as appeal to the wider resident market and international visitors.

Great project. Too bad it's not "Under Construction" I bet it'll never see the light of day. Pretty good renderings nonetheless.
You are right. I do hope to see it come up soon.. This project alone can give accra a good facelift. And is perfect for the downtown.This are the kind of buildings accra deserves and not all these glorified high rise buildings we see around.

Well its surely a project to look out for cos I found out that the project is part of agreements inked between Singapore and Ghana GIPC to promote public and private sector partnership. .SP Architects Planners & Engineers and ABP Consult, consultancies from Singapore and Ghana respectively, signed an agreement to jointly work together for the sourcing and servicing of real estate development projects in Ghana.
all the best tho.. Ghana will rise

I cry everytime i see the Accra coast.
From the look of things it seems we have to form a group as concerned ghanians to address the way our metropolitan assemblies and govt handle the urban planning in ghana.. There is a group like that I see on twitter but they are not soo effective.. The accra coast is soo beautiful.. But we got some old men with old brains sitting in high places.. Just look at the ama site.. Ugly and hardly updated.. And they say they are positioning Accra as a hub. I had a look @ the height zoning and wondered who set that up.. It really pathetic! A lot I could pin point on this matter!

This is the case of the Accraold coast city and marine front project.. its clear that government purposely frustrated the project.

NPP accuses government of victimizing Togbe Afede over criticism

The New Patriotic Party in the Volta Region have accused the ruling Government of victimizing the Paramount Chief of Asogli Traditional Area Togbe Afede over his recent condemnation of the government’s attitude towards the voter in the area.

Togbe Afede XIV recently lambasted the ruling NDC for taking the Volta Region for granted despite the political support it enjoys from the region.
He said the NDC and its officials in public offices disrespect the chiefs and people of the area but call on them during elections.

Following his condemnation, the Volta Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr John Peter Amewu said the Chief have since been suffering victimization from the ruling government.

Accusing the NDC of suffocating businesses and frustrating business people who do not belong to their camp, Peter Amewu at a press cnferecne in Ho today [Saturday] said business initiatives of the Paramount chief are being crippled.

“Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, it will shock you to note that Togbe Afede who is one of the finest and hardworking Ghanaian entrepreneurs has become a target of Mahama led NDC administration as a result of his constant crusade for good governance and incorruptible leadership” he claimed.

Making references, the Regional Chairman said “it is no more hidden secret that Togbe’s Coastal/Beach Development Project which has been given a blessing by the Ga Chiefs and gone to cabinet several times for discussions had been shot down by president Mahama and his cronies”

He added “a wonderful idea by Togbe Afede to introduce 1000 megawatt of coal as proportion of our energy mix has been hijacked by the NDC government. it is unbelievable to note that for over five months now the Asogli power plant has been idle due to lack of security of supply of gas from Nigeria and government failure and inability to make payment due Asogli”.

He however wondered why government continued to support foreign initiatives at higher cost instead of promoting indigenous businesses.

“How can this government continue to stifle the private sector initiatives and still have moral grounds of creating jobs? Government finds it more expedient to advance payment to KAR Power Project, a foreign initiative at a rather higher rate.”

Peter Amewu implored the people of the Volta region and business people to support the NPP to win the general elections to enhance socio economic growth of the country.

“Ladies and gentlemen, to those Voltarians who are not NPP sympathizers if you have passion for positive economic, social and political change, come join the NPP. Together we can achieve a strong Volta and Independent Ghana”
