Here are examples of the market snapshots we produce – one for each quarter during the year

2007 Q3 - Dakar Senegal Offices

An overview of the office sector in Dakar - Senegal. Q3 2007.

The main office locations in Dakar are Downtown (Plateau) to the south, Point E just to the north of Downtown and Les Almadies/Ngor in the north. Downtown is the location of most of the State's Ministries, many of the Embassies, Senegal's utility companies, and the national and regional banks.

Demand is reasonable but not particularly strong in terms of international corporate occupiers. There is a reasonable amount of residential development taking place, but less in terms of offices.

2007 Q4 - Accra Ghana Offices

An overview of the office sector in Accra - Ghana. Q4 2007

Historically Accra's Central Business District runs along the north side of High Street and is the location of Standard Chartered Bank, Ghana Commercial Bank and Barclays. To its eastern half the CBD is also home to many Government Ministries.

Because of congestion issues in this area of the city, much of the new development has focused to the north of High Street in the Ridge area, and particularly along Independence Avenue. Additionally there is a pocket of development in Airport City, adjacent to Accra International Airport.
