Elsie Owusu reveals designs for £500m regeneration in Ghana

  • Comment

Elsie Owusu Architects has revealed the first images of its mammoth 40ha regeneration project in Ghana's capital city Accra.

The £500 million mixed-use scheme - which won planning permission three weeks ago (AJ 19.6.03) for a start on site in 2004 - includes offices, an IT hub, shops and a residential area on Independence Avenue.

The project forms part of a larger regeneration initiative for the entire city, led by Elsie Owusu Architects and Knak Design, which includes a masterplan being drawn up by Richard Rogers Partnership and Llewelyn-Davies.

Included in the plan are a Centre for Excellence in Tropical Telemedicine and the regeneration of the city's waterfront, plus the renovation of President John Kufuor's rundown palace. A tram system costing more than £100 million is also proposed.
