Hope City project takes off

The sod has been cut for the construction of ‘Hope City’, an ultra-modern edifice that will serve as an information technology communication cluster for Rlg, a leading telecoms company in the country.
The project is an initiative of AGAMS Group in collaboration with Government as part of the national development policy framework which, among others, aims at turning Ghana into a knowledge-society and an active player in the global economy.
Estimated at a total cost of US$10billion, Hope City when completed will provide jobs for about 50,000 people and host 25,000 inhabitants.
The edifice will stand as a vertical city composed of towers linked together by a system of bridges at different heights, and will house common amenities that create an interconnection of different functions.
Mr. Roland Agambire, Chairman of AGAMS Group and Chief Executive of Rlg Communications, said Hope City will portray a vertical city wherein the continent’s ICT brains will converge, where lives are to be built — and be the tallest city in Africa where the entire future of our noble country and continent will be fashioned.
He said the passion to embark on the project is driven by the same sense of patriotism, compassion and love for mankind, amply exhibited by our great fathers — saying it will afford Ghanaians a platform to bridge the gap with the rest of the international industrial community.
“While bringing modernity and excellence into the design of Hope City, all efforts have been made to incorporate the Ghanaian ingenuity and culture into the architecture as its inspiration.
“The structure signifies a typical northern family home, made up of a number of individual homes which come together to form an external family unit. Hope City is a testimony that society can influence one man to make history,” he said.
Mr. Agambire asked government to extend tax-holidays to support the project in order to sustain the drive and desire to bring employment and build the requisite infrastructure for the nation’s development.
“Hope City shall specifically seek the support of Government for tax reliefs to ensure that the City is not only completed but completed on time for ICT to serve as the new economic discovery for Ghana.
“It is my dream to see Hope City export technology across the globe. I am happy and proud to say that Rlg continues to lift high the flag of Ghana on the international stage, and what we are witnessing today is ample testimony of our resolve to operate at that level of excellence,” he said.
