The proposed project site enjoys a commanding and uninterrupted 180-degree view to the South overlooking the Tetteh Quarshie Interchange, Accra’s major traffic intersection.
The development can maximize the sweeping view to the South, addressing the intersection corner and visually linking the development to the Gallery Project site in the immediate vicinity.
The site’s high visibility presents a unique opportunity for a landmark development in an emerging residential node of the city.
The Mega-Church flanks the site on the east and an undeveloped site on the west. With the site being roughly rectangular and its length facing the optimal southern orientation with its engaging cityscape view, the opportunity to minimize the overlooking to the east for the privacy and noise disturbance factors is possible.
The site has its frontage and Access Street on the north of the site with a developed residential suburban context already present. In addition to engaging the view opportunity of the South, the street frontage presents an additional opportunity for the development to engage the surrounding context by creating an active development street edge with publicly accessible retail components of the scheme such as a delicatessen and convenience supermarket on this edge serving both the signature development and the surrounding community.
Our responding approach to the brief generated a proposal informed by the unique context of the site, its surrounds and also the ability to phase the development in 3-4 stages allowing phase to be logically and independently completed within cost and practicality parameters as well as in a manner that would result in minimal disturbance or abortive changes to initial phases in the development timeline.
