Kumasi City Mall in Kumasi in Ghana
Atterbury’s $95m Kumasi City Mall in Kumasi, Ghana, opens on April 20. It is the fourth retail development in the country by the property developer and investor. Accra Mall, Westhills Mall and Achimota Mall are all in Accra. The 18,500m2 mall has
potential for a 10,000m2 expansion. Almost fully let, anchor tenants are Shoprite and Game. Its retail mix includes food, convenience, banking, services, fashion, electronics and a cinema, club and children’s games for entertainment, with a long list of local retail names.
The design is a joint venture between South African architect practice Boogertman + Partners and Ghanaian practice MultiCAD. It is inspired by an African tree, which branches out to create a roof canopy, and incorporates steel, concrete and wood.
