Tatu City presents to Kenyan diaspora
Tatu City hosted Kenyan diaspora at the first Kenya Diaspora Easter Investment Conference in Nairobi. Hundreds of Kenyans living abroad returned home for the event.
The conference, which featured a Tatu City stand, took place at the Windsor Golf Club & Hotel and brought together diaspora, the business community and government to discuss diaspora issues and promote investment in the Kenyan economy.
For Tatu, the conference was a unique opportunity to engage the diaspora, who sometimes feel disconnected from their home country and unable to invest due to negative past experiences. His Excellency the President, Uhuru Kenyatta, attended the inaugural event, along with over 100 Kenyan ambassadors and high commissioners from around the world.
Appolonia launches Nova Ridge enclave
Accra’s premier mixed-use urban development, Appolonia – City of Light, has announced the launch of Nova Ridge, a residential enclave designed to provide a unique and serene living environment away from the hustle and bustle of central Accra.
The 8.2-hectare area has a range of 68 plots to suit all buyers.
Nova Ridge, a new, gated community, offers fully serviced plots with clean land title. In a major departure from other developments on the market, Nova Ridge plots are carefully planned with required green areas, ensuring discerning residents ample outdoor space free from the overbuilding seen in other new communities.
Nova Ridge is open to those who want to build a home to suit their individual lifestyle, design and taste. It comes with a communal clubhouse and swimming pool to enhance the comfort of your urban style.
Located minutes from the Tetteh-Quarshie to Adenta Highway, between Oyibi and Afienya in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana, the development will ensure a calm and serene environment within a commutable distance to Accra.
Infrastructure within the development is currently being deployed, and Nova Ridge is to be completed within 24 months.
In September 2014, City of Light appointed Best and Crompton Engineering Ghana Limited and GKL Ghana Limited to undertake electrical and road works within phase one of the project. This comes following the completion of procurement for water and electricity from the Ghana Water Company and the Electricity Company of Ghana, respectively.
Tatu City reaches infrastructure milestones
Tatu City has completed 50% of sewerage infrastructure leading to the revolutionary 2,500-acre, mixed-used development near Nairobi, the future home to more than 70,000 residents.
Tatu City’s civil works contractor Sinohydro Tianjin Engineering Company, appointed in October, is working according to schedule, Tatu City’s acting CEO Anthony Njoroge said.
“We are pleased with the speed and quality of the civil works,” he said.
Tatu City’s sewerage is connected to a new treatment plant constructed by the Athi Water Service Board, 8 km east of the Tatu City site.
In addition, Tatu City has completed 8 km of gravel access roads leading to the development’s residential area Kijani Ridge and Tatu Industrial Park, whose current phases are 50% and 80% sold out, respectively.
The next stage of Tatu City’s development, commencing in April, will be construction of paved roads, street lighting, drainage structures, water main lines, water storage tanks, a residential site perimeter wall and a power substation, among other infrastructure services.
