Home » Projects » La Beach Towers

If you ever dreamt of experiencing the feel of sandy beaches, together with the sound of the ocean, the fresh healing breeze of sea air and peaceful oceanfront living on daily basis, then the La Beach Towers is the right answer to explore the amazing experience by simply owning a piece of Ghana’s premier beachfront real estate.

The La Beach Towers, a five-star luxury accommodation in a verdant seafront surrounding has brought the best proposition yet to Ghana’s rapidly rising real estate industry.

The development’s 198 apartment units, sitting within three 18-storey (ground plus 17) towers, offers buyers and residents luxury and comfort that is comparable only to the most respected and world-leading five star hotel brands. The Oceanic View Tower is under construction and is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2014. In addition, there will be additional two towers to come on board, which together bring the value to $85 million for the entire project.

La Beach Towers grants easy access to all the important parts of the city. Next door to La Palm Royal Beach Hotel (a five star hotel), approximately 20 minutes drive from the Central Business District and Arts Centre, a direct route to the Government offices and ministries, 15 minutes to the Airport and 10 minutes to the Osu shopping district as well as numerous restaurants and places of interest.

The features provided by the La Beach Towers include;
Spacious apartments with a minimum total gross floor area of 209sqm of which one has the option to owe a 3 bedroom apartment, 4 bedroom penthouse or a sky villa each provided with an extra room for use as a servants quarters.

A podium top greenery that provides high class basketball and lawn courts as well as each unit has ensuite bedrooms, fully fitted kitchens.
The La Beach Towers has infinity pool and a toddler pool overlooking the ocean and next to a courtyard.

Each within beautifully landscaped tropical gardens on the ground and on the podium roof, each providing external green spaces for relaxation, recreation, reading and enjoyment. Residents can also wind down on the serene beach, which is only a few metres away from the towers and apartments. No such residential development and indeed no five-star facility in Ghana provide such access to natural expanse of the sea and the fresh ocean.

Construction Quality
The development of La Beach has taken into consideration one of the most important aspects of ocean front development thus rust and corrosion which is a source of concern for most Ghanaians. As a result of salinity of the coast of Ghana, the engineers and consultants were mindful, “so before concrete was cast, we make sure the wire is brush and do not leave steel unattended to’’, says Tony Asare, from Tekton Consult, the architect working on the project.

In addition the project used ABBM to ensure that the concrete are tested for water to prevent leaking within the units of the towers.

Even though the site had a bit of coastal protection historically, the team of engineers and consults has in a place a comprehensive additional coastal protection designed around 500 metres along the coast which includes a reinforcement concrete wall embedded in the ground to about 2.5 to 3 metres which eventually came to 4 or 5 metres.
“So you a have a very thick wall of 300 millimetres thick reinforce concrete that is the coastal protection. Now from an average of 5 metres above mid sea level we have elevated our site to 7 metres above mid sea level that is about 2 and half times a normal room height,’’ Mr Asare said.

Beyond that the first floor also starts about 4.2metres from the ground level and the ground is about 450 millimetres above the ground level so the first floor is about 4.5 metres, which gives a height of about 12 metres.

“When the tsunami hits japan , the height of the coat was about 13 metres, meaning this building is well protected even against tsunami,’’ he emphasised.
