ABIA PPP/IP; HERITAGE CITY ELAPSES ALL PRE-PROJECT PLANNING STAGES, SET FOR BUILDOUT.
In addition to the feat already attained by his administration through the Public Private Partnership/Investment Promotion (PPP/IP) Office, Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu is set to achieve yet another significant milestone, but this time in real estate development. Governor Ikpeazu has tailored the Heritage City project through all the pre-project planning stages and it is now set for infrastructural design and commencement of massive construction.
Facilitated by the Abia PPP/IP Office team ably led by the Vice Chairman/CEO, Mr. Austin Ufomba, the team of experts made up of consultant architects, consultant geologists project engineers among others, who came for the final stage of the pre- project planning works at the project site located mainly in Isiala-Ngwa North and partly in Isialangwa South LGA of the State has just concluded their operations which took a few days working visit to achieve. The exercise which bothered around establishment of actual boundaries/beacons of the site, making other ground and aerial view measurements, collections of soil samples for laboratory examination, and surveying of the Imo River running across the site for its depth measurement and flood modelling, is said to be critical to the proper planning of the project.
Heritage City, a Public Private Partnership (PPP) joint project, is sited on an area of 835 hectares, thrice the size of Victoria Island in Lagos state. Resulting from a journey to develop an idea birthed three years ago, the new city will attract unlimited development and technological exposure to Abia State. Driven by a partnering company known for developing a well planned residential habitation for both the middle and high income home seekers, it will treasure anyone who values clean, green and serene environment similar to what is achievable in the best livable cities of the world.
