Kumasi City Mall, the $95 million dollar retail facility, opened and commenced trading today, making the Ashanti regional capital the second city in Ghana with the complement of an A-grade shopping and recreational centre.
The sprawling edifice, bedecked with intricate architectural designs, opened its gates at 9:00 am to excited and enthusiastic residents of Kumasi eager to see the various line shops and experience one-stop destination shopping for the first time.
KCM is located at Asokwa, on the confluence of Lake Road, Yaa Asantewa Road, and Hudson Street and sits on a total land area of 15.4 acres, with a lettable space of 18,500 square metres and potential for further expansion of up to 10,000 square metres.
The Kumasi City Mall project took 24 months to complete, after the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, had cut the sod for commencement on June 6, 2014. The King is scheduled to officially commission the facility on May 10, 2017.
