The planned new district of Agondjé
The area of Agondjé has been picked out by the government to become the model of urban development in the Gabon of the future.
Since 2011, teams of urban planners, engineers, legal experts and contract managers have been working in close collaboration to achieve the building of diverse housing units and the development of the new district of Agondjé.
In less than 8 months, Agondjé has evolved from an idea to the building of the first homes.Situated in the North of Libreville, it will include several types of accommodation units adapted to suit the different social categories of the population of Gabon and will include lots of parks, health centres, shopping malls, schools, administrative and public services and a hierarchised road network.
Based on the major principles of the SmartCode, an international urban development model that places sustainable development at the centre of priorities, Agondjé will provide urban and social diversity, in a modern urban environment comprising wide natural spaces, thanks to a wide range of accommodation options for all incomes, from the top-of-the-range to moderately priced accommodation.In addition, it will offer all the necessary amenities in proximity to the homes and work places of the district’s residents.
21 show houses have been built.
The aim of the project is to produce 1,000 homes by the end of 2012, 5,000 in 2013 then 5,000 to 7,000 units a year up till 2015.
