Achimota Retail Centre
Atterbury Property’s latest shopping mall development to be complete in Ghana – the R800 million ($60 million) Achimota Retail Centre located in north-eastern Accra – opened its doors to the delight of locals.
The brand new 15,000m² retail destination provides top-quality shopping for the first time on this scale under one roof in this part of the Ghanaian capital.
Achimota Retail Centre is anchored by South Africa’s Shoprite and local Ghanaian food and general merchandise retail chain, Palace. South African and local Ghanaian retail brands part of the tenant mix include Jet, Mr Price, MTN, Nallem, Foods Inn, CompuGhana and KFC, amongst others.
The centre – a single level mall – is home to 51 line stores, offering convenience, retail and fashion brands, as well as a restaurant and food court. It has basement parking for 250 cars and a further 335 open air parking bays.
Located on a prime 4ha site in the town Dome and alongside the Accra-Nsawam Highway, Achimota Retail Centre boasts a contemporary design. Its design includes sustainability features such as grey water harvesting, environmentally conscious landscaping and a building management system. Local Ghanaian architecture firm, Multi Card Consult, designed the mall in a joint venture with South Africa’s Boogertman and Partners.
