Oyarifa Mall, the latest addition to retail service centres in Accra, is set to open by April this year to serve the rapidly growing middle-class suburbs of Oyarifa, Adenta, Frafraha, Ayimensa, Damfa and its environs.
The new mall, which will be the first and only formal, organised commercial retail space in the area, will provide a strong selection of retailers across various categories, including grocery stores, lifestyle and fashion outlets.
“Located off the N4 Highway near the Accra-Aburi intersection, the Oyarifa Mall is being developed by Oyarifa Development and will cover over 10,000 square metres,” the CEO and Founder of Oyarifa Development, Mr Peter Osei, said in a release issued on January 16 in Accra.
The mall’s food and beverage areas will feature a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and quick-service food concepts while the lifestyle area will welcome retailers featuring fashion, apparel, footwear and accessories to provide customers with a strong variety of popular African and premium brands.
“The Oyarifa area is quickly growing to become one of the hotspots for real estate in Ghana. With more people living and travelling to the area, there is a need for more amenities and conveniences to cater to the needs of the community.
“We are excited to develop Oyarifa Mall as a commercial anchor that has been designed to suit its surroundings; taking advantage of the serenity and beauty of the area’s landscape and views,” Mr Osei said.
Oyarifa Mall is uniquely positioned to serve the rapidly increasing middle-income residential settlements, learning centres like Ashesi University and others.
Travellers going east towards Koforidua and beyond and weekend health enthusiasts who use the Aburi hike as a fitness route are also expected to benefit.
“The Oyarifa Mall will have something for everyone to enjoy. Considerations have been made to accommodate a variety of retail needs - from large grocery chains to medium-sized food, electronics and service vendors to small kiosk businesses.
“The mall is a unique retail opportunity allowing retailers a unique opportunity to connect and engage within this growing community and busy thoroughfare,” Mr Osei added.
