We are going to create 14 semi-affordable units in this fringe area of Greater Accra located just 5 minutes from the Pokuase Interchange.
The residential market in Ghana has experienced significant growth in recent years. This growth has been fueled by various factors, including the “Year of Return” initiative in 2019. This led to a surge in tourism and expatriate interest in the country, especially from America, Europe, and other parts of Africa, which continues to this day.
Pokuase is a rapidly developing area known for its strategic location and accessibility. Situated on the outskirts of Accra, it benefits from the Pokuase Interchange, which provides improved access to the city and connections to other parts of Ghana.
This presents an excellent opportunity for investors looking to capitalise on the continent’s growth potential
