La Beach Towers, Accra’s pioneering seafront apartment development, is a world-class construction employing the most advanced building techniques to ensure the utmost safety and comfort for residents, Tony Asare, Principal Architect for the project, has said.
Located on the La Beach road in Accra, the development is a seafront gated community comprising three 17-storey towers surrounded by stunning tropical landscape gardens and a complete range of luxurious outdoor facilities.
“This project is going to transform both the seafront and skyline of Accra. Hitherto, none of our beaches had been given a modern outlook such as La Beach Towers is going to do, and we expect this development to become the benchmark for luxury seaside accommodations in Ghana,” Arc. Asare said.
The developers have done a thorough investigation of the soil and their engineers have proposed a very sound foundation made of piling for the 17-storey blocks of luxury flats. The foundations rests on piling that is often not a method used in construction. These piles go beyond competent soil and rest with firm rocks, some as deep as 20 metres.
According to the Principal Architect, these steps will assure of the structural soundness of the buildings. “This project has been well thought through, from design to finish. We are using the best materials, all of which have been tested for their suitability in the very saline and humid environment, because we want the people investing in this to get a very good return on their investment.”
Each tower consists of 66 apartment units, made up of 60 three-bedroom apartments each with an outhouse; two four-bedroom penthouses; and two four-bedroom sky villas.
All the units have en-suite master-bedrooms and fitted kitchens, electric cookers, waste-disposal facilities, access via lifts and staircase, air-conditioning, broadband Internet connectivity, cable TV, and lounges that open out to balconies overlooking the ocean, the gardens or the city.
In addition, each of the three-bedroom apartments, which sit on the first to 15th floors in each tower, has servant quarters and/or study. The penthouses have servant quarters, study and family room; and the sky villas have servant quarters, study, family-room and entertainment/cinema room.
The spaces have been so planned to capture as much natural light as possible. The units have alternating garden courts designed for the public area that is a unique feature for the development. The landscape design is welcoming and has a good mixture of savannah and tropical design concepts.
La Beach Towers, which was recently voted the ‘Best Up-and-Coming Developer (Mixed Use Condominium) at the Ghana Property Awards, also includes an amenities block comprising a 150-capacity underground car park (in addition to a ground surface car park), a club house (housing among others tennis and basketball courts), a gymnasium and spa, a café bar, an infinity pool and Jacuzzi.
When completed, the development will be run by a facility management company that will provide adequate 24-hour security and be available to see to the needs of residents.
George Twum-Barimah-Adu of Cypress Investments Limited, the developer of La Beach Towers, said people can buy the apartments to live in or as an investment, adding that pricing comes with very good terms and the potential to earn tidy returns as the value of the property increases over time.
“Sales are currently ongoing and we encourage investors to invest in this unique opportunity to own a piece of exclusivity,” he said.
The first residents are expected to move in after the first phase is completed next October. The second phase, which has already started, will be finished in 2014, and the third and final phase is expected to be delivered in 2015.
