The land on which the Airport City currently shows its magnificent architecturally-designed glass buildings, was just a rough terrain when in the 1990s it was designed as part of the Accra Redevelopment Scheme. Now the Airport City is a modern urban development, thet aims to become a hub in the sub-region to connect Western African countries with the rest of the world, to promote trade and generate employment.
