APPOLONIA INDUSTRIAL PARK BREAKS GROUND IN GHANA
Light industrial and logistics area to provide international grade infrastructure to businesses in West Africa
Appolonia Business Park has broken ground on its 70-acre site, welcoming leading Ghanaian and international companies to the light industrial area of Appolonia City, the mixed-use, mixed income development near Accra.
Inaugurated by U.S. Ambassador Robert Jackson and Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, represented by Frederick Alipui, Policy Advisor to the Minister, the event was also attended by representatives of European embassies in Ghana, as well as the Accra business community.
Ambassador Jackson, welcoming the presence of American investors in the project, said, “We congratulate Rendeavour for its dedication in bringing the Appolonia development to reality. It is really an investment in the future – positioning this area as a social and economic hub, with the potential to create significant jobs.”
“Projects such as Appolonia City can bring immense benefits to the local community, Accra and the wider region,” said Frederick Alipui. “We are thankful to Rendeavour for the foresight to place one of its projects in Accra, ensuring that value is given the host nation.”
Stephen Jennings, Founder and CEO of Rendeavour, the lead investor and developer of Appolonia City, said, “Appolonia City Business Park’s high quality infrastructure and secure land title create an ideal environment for companies looking to expand their businesses in Ghana and West Africa. Furthermore, the neighbouring residential areas of Appolonia City allow employees to live nearby their workplace, while enjoying amenities such as parks, schools, healthcare and shopping.”
Appolonia City Business Park’s fully serviced plots include water, sewerage, storm drainage and a dedicated substation for electricity, in close proximity to residential and recreational facilities in the wider Appolonia City project. The business park is designed to accommodate a range of uses, from manufacturing and processing to storage and logistics.
Appolonia City will be home to more than 88,000 residents and 30,000 day visitors, creating tens of thousands of jobs during the lifetime of the project.
