City Launches 8b Br Condominium Project

Jan 15 , 2022

The Addis Abeba City Administration has embarked on an eight billion Birr condominium housing project. Dubbed the 'Akaki Prefab Housing Phase I' project, it will see the construction of 5,000 houses. The project will use prefabricated (prefab) technology, which was chosen for its shorter construction duration.

During a launch ceremony last week, Mayor Adanech Abiebie stated it has been a challenge for the city to repay an accumulated debt of 54 billion Br from past condominium housing projects.
