The region of Accra is one of the fastest growing urban areas in Africa with a continuous demand for new development and infrastructure, in particular a demand for housing. To respond to these needs in 2012 Africa’s largest urban land developer decided to turned a 9,41 kmq land on the Eastern plains of Accra into the city of Apolonia, also known as the City of Light.
The project is a mixed used development, including residential areas, industries, business center, education and healthcare services, public open spaces and other urban amenities.
