The 2-3 bedroom houses to be constructed by Eban Properties will have prices ranging from $75,000 to $100,000. Show houses will be completed by December 2015.
The residential development, called The Oxford, is the second to be announced by the project developers this year. In March, Appolonia launched its 24-hectare Nova Ridge residential enclave, allowing homebuyers to design and build their own homes on a range of plot sizes.
“We are pleased to partner with Appolonia to bring world-class housing to Ghana’s pre-eminent mixed-use urban development,” said Kwabena Peprah, Chief Executive Officer of Imperial Appolonia, the joint venture company. “We look forward to bringing our Oxford property brand to clients in a world-class development designed for forward-thinking people”.
Nick Langford, Country Manager for Rendeavour, Africa’s largest urban land developer and lead partner in Appolonia, said, “Our joint venture to build The Oxford is a testament to Appolonia’s appeal to the Ghanaian real estate market and our team’s ability to execute on our development plans.”
Appolonia is a 941-hectare, mixed-use urban development carefully planned for residential, commercial and light industry purposes – in a space integrated with schools, retail facilities and family parks. Located 25 km from Accra’s Central Business District, Appolonia – City of Light will become home to 88,000 residents and 30,000 day visitors, creating a live-work-play social and economic hub that eases the burden of urbanisation on Ghana’s capital.
Imperial Appolonia is a special purpose company founded by Francis Biney and Kwabena Peprah of Imperial Holdings. Between them, they have a total of 35 years’ experience in real estate development in Ghana. Francis specialises in developing high-end properties and Kwabena’s strength is in mid-level, affordable property.
