The 12th of September groundbreaking took place for the Accra urban extension project, developed by a Dutch consortium of designers composed by FABRICations, MLA+, Mixst Urbanisme, More Architecture, OKRA Landscape Architects.
The Dutch designers developed a large urban expansion in the coastal villages of Ningo and Pranpran to host 1.8 million inhabitants in the fast-growing Accra great urban region. The project, commissioned by UNHabitat and supported by the Dutch Stimuleringsfonds, was officially approved by the Statutory Planning Authority of the Ningo-Prampram District Assembly (NiPDA) and it now reached its first phase of development.
