Rivers, S. African firm plan Port Harcourt Peninsular City
From RoseAnn Chikereuba, Port Harcourt

A TEAM of investors arrived in Port Harcourt last week from South Africa, with a proposal to develop a new city called the Peninsular City on an Island between Port Harcourt and Bakana.

The team, it was gathered, built the Sun City in South Africa. The leader of the team, Mr. Lance Kinnear, explained that the proposed Peninsular City would provide an opportunity to redevelop the swamps in the Niger Delta into some of the world's most unique urban environments.

Kinnear revealed that the team had taken an aerial inspection of the designated area of the Peninsular City and maintained that the proposed city would have features similar to those in other cities like Venice, New York and Curitiba in Brazil.

He explained, "it would have an integration of an extensive canal system to complement the normal transportation facilities". Kinnear, an architect, while presenting a graphic model of features of the proposed new city to the governor, expressed hope that the development would attract more investors to Port Harcourt.

Governor Rotimi Amaechi described the proposed new city as a welcome development to the state government, noting that the project was achievable.

Towards realising the project, Amaechi has set up a seven-man committee led by the Deputy Governor, Mr. Tele Ikuru to work out the partnership details for the proposed city with the investors.

The governor also assured that the state government would co-operate with the investment team under its private public-partnership-scheme.

The governor also requested full details of funding for the project from the team. The Rivers State team is headed by the Deputy Governor Tele Ikuru, and former Secretary to the State Government Mrs. Aleruchi Cookey-Gam, the Commissioner for Works, Mr. Dakuku Peterside, and his Housing counterpart, Mrs. Alice Nemi among others.

Rivers earmarks N50b for 'Greater Port Harcourt City', master plan project
From Kelvin Ebiri, PortHarcourt

AFTER launching the blueprint for a new city, the Rivers State government has backed the idea with funds in its 2009 Appropriation Bill. The state has earmarked the sum of N50 billion for 2009 for the commencement of the implementation of the new Port Harcourt master plan and Greater Port Harcourt City project.

The authorities also disclosed that the demolition of illegal and unacceptable structure within the city of Port Harcourt would continue by next year. There had been mixed feelings by the public over the demolition exercise.

Governor Chibuike Amaechi stated this while presenting the Bill to members of the Rivers State House of Assembly in Port Harcourt at the weekend.

He explained that an international firm had produced a master plan for Port Harcourt and the new Greater Port Harcourt City and that government is determined to implement the new Port Harcourt Master Plan.

Governor Amaechi said: "To this end, government will establish a Greater Port Harcourt City Development Authority charged with this responsibility of implementing the master plan. We have set aside the sum of N50 billion in 2009 to fund the project. Let me assure you all, that at the end of this exercise, we will have a world class city that will be clean, green, orderly, and a delight for us to live in."

He explained that one of the most painful programmes of his administration has been the demolition of illegal and unacceptable structures within the city of Port-Harcourt. This action of government, according to him, has generated some mixed feelings, especially on the part of those directly affected

"In the days ahead, more people will be required to make some sacrifices. We engaged the services of an international firm to produce a master plan for Port Harcourt and the new Greater Port Harcourt City. They have produced a master plan for Port Harcourt and the new city," said Amaechi.

To arrest the continuing deterioration of infrastructure in the educational sector, the governor said the state government has embarked on the construction of 250 model primary schools, 23 international standard secondary schools.

He said the relocation and construction of a multibillion new ultra modem Rivers State University of Science and Technology (RSUST) is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2009.

In the area of health, Governor Amaechi said his administration has placed emphasis on primary health care with the building of 150 ultra-modern primary health care facilities across the state. Some of these have been completed and are now functional.

He said works on three hospitals are on-going in Port Harcourt metropolis. These include expansion works on the Chief A. K. Hart Memorial Hospital, located at Garrison junction, the Niger Hospital in Mile 1, Diobu and the new Justice Karibi Whyte International hospital.

On road infrastructure, he said government has started a massive rural road construction programme across the length and breadth of the state. He said the commitment of the administration is to ensure the construction of good quality rural roads across the state.

He said: "We have also embarked on a massive dualisation of most major roads within the Port Harcourt metropolis. In partnership with some private investors, it is our intention to embark on the construction of a light monorail in Port Harcourt."

He continued, "construction work on the Port Harcourt Ring Road project will start in May 2009. We are convinced that on completion of these projects, our public infrastructures would have been greatly enhanced."

Nigeria: 60-Storey Transcorp Hilton in Port Harcourt
Jimitota Onoyume
10 December 2008
http://allafrica.com/stories/200812100936.html

A 60-storey Transcorp Hilton hotel is to be built in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, the State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Ogbonna Nwuke has announced.

The hotel which would be located at the site of the state transportation corporation, Waterlines junction in Port Harcourt would be run by Transcorp Hilton Corporation, Nigeria. Mr. Nwuke told newsmen in Port Harcourt that government was going into partnership with the Transcorp Hilton Corporation for the project.

According to him, while the government would provide land, Transcorp Hilton would fund the project. He said the government would also hold twenty percent equity in the investment.

The Commissioner also said government has entered into an agreement with a South African Firm to revitalize and manage the Port Harcourt International Airport Hotel, Omagwa, under a public private partnership arrangement, and work would commence in January, 2009.

On the Hilton hotel project he said Transcorp Hilton has raised an initial sum of $500million for the project and $1million as guarantee should it fail to appear on site within one month.

He also disclosed that the shopping mall at the GRA Junction axis of Port Harcourt would be managed by a South African firm, Shop Rite, explaining that the benefit from the venture is enormous.

With regards to the building model above, turns out that is not the actual proposal or 'render' of the hilton hotel planned for port harcourt but just a concept for a proposal for a completely different building (not in Nigeria) that has same number of floors as the Transcorp Building planned (60 floors) just to serve as a means of comparison. The designs for the Transcorp hilto hotel planned for Port Harcourt have not actually been released.

I posted the article above mainly because of the mention of the mall in Port Harcourt which is being built at the moment. Construction has been going on for some time already. I am working on obtaining pictures of the construction work on the ground, i have someone on the job.

Thanks a lot Moonblue. This Nigerian board is desperately in need of folks like you and Joblessbeggar, who have some form of direct access to many of these site's locations listed on this board. There are loads of proposals posted on here though there's very few pictures if any at all showing how the projects are progressing.

Is there anyway that you could possibly get any photos of the work going on at the Lagos Energy City location and the Lekki Free Trade Zone location?
