La Beach Towers, the luxurious beachfront residential development in Accra, has been named the Best “Up-and-Coming Developer (Mixed Use Condominium)” at the fifth Ghana Property Awards.
The Awards are the biggest real estate industry awards event in the country, organised by Property Express Limited in collaboration with the Ghana Real Estate Developers Association (GREDA) and the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing.
La Beach Towers, located on the La Beach Road in Accra, emerged tops in a category comprising developers such as Dream Realty, Villaggio Vista, and Vanguard Properties.
Mrs. Worlase Afatsiawo, Head, Sales & Marketing for La Beach Towers, said the award is an endorsement by the industry of their project, which is intended to provide not just luxury seafront homes to individuals but also to give a new outlook to the country’s beaches.
“We are excited and humbled by the award. We won because our product is unique and is the first of its kind in the country, which is what has been recognised by the organisers and judges,” she said.
La Beach Towers comprises three 18-storey (ground plus 17) towers set within beautifully landscaped tropical gardens in a seafront gated community.
Each tower comprises 66 apartment units divided into 60 three-bedroom apartments, 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; while the penthouses have servant quarters, study and family room; and the sky villas have servant quarters, study, family-room and entertainment/cinema room.
La Beach Towers also includes an amenities block with 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, swimming pool and Jacuzzi.
“The development is currently on the 8th floor of the first tower and the internal walls for the lower floors are being done. The Podium parking is 60% completed and all materials being used are of the highest quality,” said George Twum-Barimah-Adu of Cypress Investments Limited, the developer of La Beach Towers.
“Sales are currently ongoing and we encourage investors to invest in this unique opportunity to own a piece of exclusivity,” he added.
He said people can buy the apartments to live in or as an investment, adding that pricing of the apartments comes with very good terms and the potential to earn tidy returns as the value of the property increases over time.
When completed, La Beach Towers 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.
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.
