ACHIMOTA RETAIL CENTRE
The R800 million Achimota Retail Centre in north-eastern Accra recently opened its doors on the 29th of October 2015. Achimota Retail Centre is located along the Nsawam-Accra Road in Achimota. It is bounded to the north by St. Johns – Dome – Kwabenya Road, a major link road to the north eastern catchment area for the site (Dome and Kwabenya). Nii Okaiman West Main Road links to Nsawam Road just south of the site and is a major traffic collector to and from suburban communities such as Tantra Hill, Chantan, Nii Okaiman East and Sowutuom. 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.
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 which includes sustainable 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.
