A plan to build what is envisaged to be the biggest shopping mall in Ghana has been unveiled in Kumasi.

The 48-million dollar facility to be sited near Suame Round-about in the Garden City is a joint venture between the Methodist Church, Ghana, and Accra Mall.

Chief Executive of Accra Mall, Alex Kwasi Bruks, unveiled an artist’s impression of the Garden City Mall on Tuesday.

He said the partnership agreement with the church has already been signed.

According to him the mall will consist of anchor shops such as Game, Silverbird Cinema and Shoprite, with opportunity for local business interests to open shops and offices there.

Mr. Bruks says the Kumasi Mall will be different from the Accra Mall because the contours of the land demand a three storey building.

Most of the shops will be cited at the middle level and then the restaurant and cinema will be on the last floor. There will also be a basement car park to ensure the safety of shoppers’ vehicles.

Mr. Bruks expressed confidence the Kumasi Mall will equally be as successful as the Accra one because of the strategic location of Kumasi and accessibility to the mall.

“Kumasi is a trading post and a crossroad, it’s surrounded by gold mining companies with large number of expatriates, people coming from the north, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger will all be shopping in the Mall,” he said.
