New Ultra-Modern Shopping Mall Opens In Onitsha February
ONITSHA, the largest commercial and trading centre in South East Nigeria, is set to witness increased tempo of activities as the first shopping mall in the area opens for business in the first quarter of 2016.
Onitsha Mall, a joint venture project by African Capital Alliance and the Anambra State Government, is located off Awka Road in the GRA part of the city.
The mall has over 60 shops and is easily accessible from all parts of Onitsha and surrounding towns such as Obosi, Oba, Ogbaru, Nsugbe, Nkwelle, Nkpor, Ogidi and Aguleri, to name a few.
Ngonyama Okpanum Associates, an international architectural firm with offices in Abuja, Cape Town and Saigon Vietnam, designed the Mall. Diamond Bank provided the funding for the project.
The facility, the first of its kind in Anambra State, is at about 95 per cent completed and will open for business in February 2016. Shoprite and a number of big retailers offering fashion accessories, sports equipment, banking services, telecoms and ICT software and hardware services have secured space in the mall.
The developers of the project, African Capital Alliance (ACA) said the new mall would signal a new dawn in the life of the city that has grappled with a dearth of quality recreational and modern lifestyle-enhancing amenities.
