General Information About West Hills Mall
Construction of West Hills Mall in Ghana’s capital, Accra, began in December 2012. West Hills Mall will become the largest single-phase modern shopping centre in Accra. Weighing in at 27 700 m², Atterbury, in conjunction with the Social Security National Insurance Trust of Ghana (SSNIT), is developing West Hills Mall to open in October 2014.
Designed for excellent access and visibility, West Hills Mall is on the new motorway in west Accra. West Hills is a 30-minute drive from the Accra CBD, and forms the gateway into the Greater Accra Region from Western Ghana. West Hills is a rapidly developing middleclass residential node in a city with a growing population of over 2.5 million people. West Hills Mall will bring top national and international retailers to this increasingly sophisticated consumer market.
Leasing in West Hills Mall is progressing strongly. South African retail heavyweight Shoprite Checkers has confirmed pride of place on this new retail stage as anchor tenant of West Hills Mall. Other key tenants secured to date include The Palace, Edgars, Jet, Truworths, Identity, Foschini and Woolworths. To date the development is 90% let based on GLA. This is Atterbury’s second large venture in Ghana, and a key step in Atterbury Group’s focused approach to African expansion through Atterbury Africa Limited.
