After a lot of business insight and expert advice, Hope City Limited (the company incorporated to execute and manage the HOPE City Project) has decided to relocate the proposed multi-billion dollar ICT enclave, better known as the HOPE City Project.
The project will now be sited at Prampram in the Greater Accra Region, instead of the initial location of Dunkuna on the Accra-Kasoa Road. The change is to, among other reasons, satisfy investor interests and to ease the difficulty in the acquisition of more lands for the $10 billion Project.
The Chairman of Hope City Limited, Roland Agambire, has disclosed in statement issued in Accra yesterday.
According to him, the new site for the project, 900 acres of land space and Hope City, will be close to the proposed international airport and seaport.
Mr Agambire explained: “The new site at Prampram has an excellent topography and the extra land area will ease the mobility concerns to and from Hope City when completed.”
Additionally, the new location offer more spaces allowing the creation of 300,000 jobs instead of the 50,000 jobs estimated at the old site, he stated.
Mr Agambire, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Rlg Communications Limited, however, hinted that the site at Dunkuna would still be developed under a different concept being worked on.
