Developments coming soon in Africa

81-Blog-Developments-coming-soon-in-Africa

Due to severe lack of adequate housing for the burgeoning populations in the various countries in Africa, more and more private developers are looking at building, not just housing estates, but whole new cities with the “Live, Work, Play” concept. Some of these new cities or mixed-use developments are still in the planning stages, but some are already underway :

Some of these developments are :

Pearl Marina – Uganda – is a development located on a 300 acre prime property located on the Garuga Peninsula in Uganda. The property is to be developed as a premium integrated water front destination, resort town and a premier Uganda tourism asset. The development will provide premium tourism and residential facilities, including hotels, conference facilities, luxury apartments, villas, a golf course, marinas, hospital, international school, modern office park and a retail centre. This is already under construction.

Tatu City – Kenya is the development of a new, world class mixed use and mixed income city centre for Nairobi, approximately 15km north of the current Nairobi City Centre in Kenya, East Africa. It covers an area of approximately 1 000 hectares and when developed, it will provide a comprehensive mix of land uses, including residential, retail, commercial, tourism, social facilities and recreation and will be privately managed. The developer, Tatu City Ltd, will undertake the servicing of the land parcels for onward sale to developers. The infrastructure includes roads, electricity, water, waste water and solid waste infrastructure as well as public landscaping and (possibly) some simple municipal building. Construction on the residential component is underway.

Vision City – Rwanda – The proposed development is set on a prime 158 hectare tract of land in Gaculiro, Kinyinya Sector of Gasabo district, this high end estate is adjacent to RSSB constructed Vision 2020 Estate and approximately 3 km from the proposed Central Business District (CBD) at Muhima and 6 km from Kigali International Airport. It will consist of over 4 500 units in different configurations ranging from luxury villas to apartments to be built in 4 phases over 8 years. Phase 1 is already underway.

Eco Medical Village – Ghana – This is a proposed medical village project development which is located in Accra, on a 30 acre site acquired adjacent to Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration in Ghana. The construction of a medical village in Ghana that will consist of: a 380 ward hospital, 120 ward women and children hospital, underground parking space for 1 000 vehicles, 120 ward housing for the elderly, 17 storey doctors’ offices, a medical shopping mall; all things health; 40 x unit studio apartments for medical trainees; a medical research center in collaboration with world renowned hospitals; a 4 star medical hotel, a 2 star medical hotel, air ambulance and paramedic services and a housing facility for medical staff. The sod-turning ceremony is scheduled for October this year.

Sharm El Sheikh – Egypt – The development is to consist of villas, townhouses, apartments, offices, hotels and shopping malls. The property is located on the edge of the Red Sea, the development spans a massive 437 000m² and features residential components including villas, townhouses and apartments with all properties created to maximise sea view. A seaside, 5-star hotel with 118 executive rooms, 30 suites, 10 Spa Suites, a Presidential Suite Villa and a Royal Suite Villa further complements a thriving community. The entire development is surrounded by a lushly landscaped, one-of-a-kind greenbelt orienting the hotel and the residential properties. Construction has commenced on the hotel.

Even in North Africa, there are new cities being considered :

Tunisia Economic City – Tunisia – This new city is located in Enfidha District in Tunisia (North Africa) in close proximity to the Enfidha Al-hammamat International airport which can help initially to speed up the building of the city. The 90 square kilometer project with an 18 kilometer beach front modern sustainable and Eco-friendly metropolis will be the home of 500 000 inhabitants and will provide 250 000 jobs once completed within 15 years from now. Construction has not yet commenced on this.

There is also a whole new capital city planned in Egypt, just outside Cairo :

New City – Egypt – is the construction of a whole new city, outside Cairo. This new city will become the country’s new capital. The new city is meant for the low and middle income earners and will include an airport, shopping mall, hotels and amenities such as schools and hospitals as well as providing homes to low and middle-income buyers. The new city is still to be named and will be built near the Suez Canal. A Chinese construction company have been awarded the contract to build the city and the infrastructure & civil works have started.

There is a very exciting project currently underway in Nigeria :

Eko Atlantic Development – Nigeria – This development is to be built on about nine million square metres of reclaimed land, 2.4 kilometres south of Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos in Nigeria. Once completed it will be one and a half times the size of the current Victoria Island. It is estimated that it will accommodate 250 000 residents and 150 000 commuters. The city will cover seven districts : Ocean Front, Harbour Lights, Business District, Eko Drive, Marina, Avenues and Downtown. The Business District will also house a convention centre, auditorium and hotels. Construction is well underway.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of new mixed-use developments up and coming in Africa.

The Hopeful Continent

 

Africa has been looked down-upon for many years in terms of our Economy and Industrialisation standards. The Good News? There is now a major change to the biased view of Africa as a whole. Africa is now seen as the “Hopeful Continent”.

Did you know that our countries landmass is larger than that of North America, India & West Europe combined!

We are the second largest continent after Asia, Africa supposedly has an annual infrastructure deficit of $100 billion.

Yet there are millions of dollars that is spent into Africa-based Infrastructure Projects on a yearly basis. Yet who is actually funding the continents infrastructure spending?

 

The collective support provided by the development finance institutions (DFI’s) and export credit agencies is that enabler. Such Institutions as the World Bank, the African Development Bank (ADB) and the Development Bank of South Africa (DBSA) have over 6.7% of the funding which is provided by them. The Infrastructure Consortium for Africa (ICA) has estimated that $44 billion was utilised for projects all over Africa in 2013. The Private sector, was estimated to be only $9 billion in this last year. So the question really is – Why are DFI’s popular for funding compared to the capital markets? This could be due to them having A-grade credit rating and are unencumbered by regulations and that they play a role when commercial players are constrained.

Our country is on a multi-billion rand development drive to fix the misrepresented implementation of infrastructure from our past and to continue to improve by meeting the demands of our growing economy.

Infrastructure spend for Sub-Saharan African countries is expected to reach $180 billion per annum by 2025! Companies such as Transnet have made progress in issuing bonds to raise capital. Transnet had raised R1.5 billion, using a 5 year bond through its Domestic Medium Term Note Programme. The African Development Bank and EU launched the Infrastructure Investment Programme for South Africa (IIPSA) in 2014. Its intention was to provide innovative and alternate funding to organisations that wished to take out infrastructure projects in SA or projects across two or more borders of the SADC member countries. If these infrastructure developments are to succeed, then it is abundantly clear that any and all corruption needs to be dealt with and with a zero tolerance policy.

 

Leads 2 Business : Primary reason for delays

Sub-Saharan Africa’s growth is projected at an average of 3.7 percent in 2015 down from 4.6 percent in 2014. However, despite the obvious slowdown of Africa’s largest economies, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the region is expected to pick up to an average of 4.4 percent and 4.8 percent in 2016 and 2017 respectively. Lower prices for fuel is expected to contribute to lower inflation in the oil importers, which will help boost the consumers’ purchasing power and support domestic demand. The price level impact of currency depreciation could, however, offset some of these effects. Remittance inflows is expected to pick-up up gradually in 2016–17.

 

So the outlook and prospective improvement for infrastructure and building developments for Africa and South Africa is looking significantly brighter than in recent years. We are still having issues with the implementations and the organisation behind projects. Our biggest problems are our internal struggles. However, it seems that new and improved systems are being implemented to greatly improve our countries growth.

 

Here are a few note worthy developments on infrastructure and building developments in Africa that we are proud to showcase on Leads 2 Business!!

Giving it Horns: Social Responsibility to Rhino’s

Giving it Horns: Social Responsibility to Rhino’s

Leads 2 Business : Social responsibility - giving it horns

To start off our 2016 Blog Journey we’re ‘Giving it Horns’ in the form of Social Responsibility to Rhino’s.

 

I’m sure most of us are aware of issues surrounding Rhino poaching and the fact that these beautiful animals are on the brink of extinction but what are you as an individual or company doing in response to these threats? Are you Socially Responsible to Rhino’s?

 

Did you know?

World Rhino day is on 22 September

The full name for Rhino is actually Rhinoceros

There are 2 species of African Rhino (White & Black)

[tweetthis]Rhino’s can gallop up to 48 km’s per hour[/tweetthis]

The Black Rhino population has decreased by 97.6% since 1960

[tweetthis]The Rhino’s current conservation status is Critically Endangered[/tweetthis]

Rhino’s have poor eyesight

Rhino’s have a Life Span of 35 to 40 Years

Rhino’s are considered ‘Mega-Herbivores’

A Rhino’s Gestation is 16 Months

1kg of Rhino horn can fetch up to 1 million rand or more

[tweetthis]Adult Rhino’s have no natural predators, except for man[/tweetthis]

 

What does it mean to be Socially Responsible?

Social Responsibility means that people and companies behave with ethical sensitivity toward social, cultural, economic and environmental issues. The benefits of being socially responsible are a positive impact on development, business and society ultimately leading to a better future.

Why become Socially Responsible to Rhino’s?

  • Conservation – When Rhino’s are protected, many other species (birds, reptiles, fish, insects and vegetation) that interact with Rhino’s are also protected.
  • Tourism – In the wild, Rhino’s attract tourists as they are one of the “Big Five”. Eco-tourism relies on tourists wanting to see the Big 5 which would be 4 without the Rhino.
  • Educate & Spread Awareness – The more people learn and spread their knowledge about Rhino’s, the better it will support the cause.
  • Eco-system Balance – Everything revolves around balance and all species are intricately connected. Rhino’s being ‘mega-herbivores’ fulfill many important roles in the ecosystem. Rhino’s eat an average of 23.6 kg a day and their dung piles can be 5 meters wide and 1 meter deep. That’s a large amount of trimming and fertilizing!

 

How to become Socially Responsible to Rhino’s?

  • Get Social about your concern for the Rhino’s. The more people who highlight the cause the more it will lead to initiatives to protect, save, prevent and secure the survival of our Rhino’s. It’s as easy as: read, share and comment.
  • Interact with Government and local Wildlife Conservation Organizations and put pressure on them to advocate Rhino Conservation and Laws that can contribute to the cause. When traveling share your concerns with local travel agencies and encourage them to do the same with Government and Tourism Organisations.
  • Volunteer for Rhino Conservation Organisations. Web Links can direct you to volunteer opportunities.
  • Donate to your Rhino Conservation Organisation. Pick Organisations where 100% of your donation goes to save Rhino and is not diluted by admin fees and other sundries.
  • Get involved with local Fund Raising activities that donate proceeds to Rhino Conservation.
  • Support Companies who support Rhino’s like Leads 2 Business. As a socially responsible individual you can demand that companies become more socially responsible by supporting companies who are already socially responsible.

 

However you show your Social Responsibility to Rhino’s, make sure you Give it Horns!
