with SBT Juul Africa, will develop the US$150 million (€109
million) Retail Mixed-Use Park/Centre.
This new development is called [email protected] and will be developed
in the Omagwa Area of the New City in Great Port Harcourt
City. [email protected] will borrow elements from a traditional
Tuscany village, where shoppers and visitors will be emotionally
and psychologically transported to Italy. For diners, a unique experience
will be offered with fine restaurants and seating spilling
over onto the streets. It will comprise purpose-built office blocks,
retail and shopping malls, entertainment halls, a luxury hotel, a
conference and events centre with a wedding chapel, additional
religious gathering rooms, conference and banqueting facilities.
The project also involves a multi-purpose piazza which could feature
exhibitions and expos and a secured parking area, cinemas,
theatres and game arcades, an amphitheatre and adventure activity
such as rock climbing walls, bowling, water-world and funfair rides.
