Petronia City is the vision of CEO and Founder of Wonda World Estates, Nana Kwame Bediako. Designed around the ideology of ‘work, live, learn and play’, Petronia City is a self-sustaining, master-planned, integrated city. It will attract, retain and support businesses, human capital needs and elevate Ghana’s Western Region into a world-class business location, tourist destination and home.
The city’s 2000-acre development will include residential, office, industrial, commercial, leisure and hospitality space. It will be the first at the heart of the Western Region of Ghana – home to the country’s rapidly growing oil, gas and mining industries. This incredible project began in October 2013 and will be realised in three key phases over the next 10 years.
The first phase is to create a foundation to build upon. As a fully functioning 70-acre ‘prototype’, the city will be self-sufficient, comprising residential, commercial, retail and recreational facilities that will accommodate 300 residents.
Construction for Phase 2 will commence halfway through the construction of Phase 1, beginning with the development of the ‘Energy City’.
Energy City will be the main business district and nerve center of Petronia. It will create a community of industry leaders in oil, gas, mining, financial and government sectors.
This final phase will expand on the city’s success and build on residential, commercial and recreational facilities, civic institutions and landscaping.
Highlights of this additional development will include civic developments, mixed income housing, a light & heavy industrial zone, an Auto Racing Circuit and Polo Grounds.
Through the vision of founder and CEO, Nana Kwame Bediako and famed architect, David Adjaye OBE, Petronia City brings together a team of developers, investors and partners to create a city of opportunity – the framework for the new African City.
