Ghanaians aspire to a desirable office and retail experience but are instead faced with a demand-supply imbalance. Meanwhile, international corporates seek quality office space in a convenient location. Anticipating both these needs, Actis is creating The Exchange, a mixed-use urban development on a prime seven-acre site close to Ghana’s Kotoka International Airport.

The Exchange is being developed in two phases and will incorporate office, residential and retail space and a hotel. It will boast the first pedestrian retail high street of its kind and its green design will use at least 30% less energy than its peers in Accra. The Exchange has received EDGE green building certification from IFC of the World Bank Group

Actis is developing The Exchange in partnership with Mabani Holdings; the first phase is expected to be ready in 2017.
