By launching the display housing developments of the second Wellcity.O2 hub in the new town, the Confortis International Group sought to embody the theme for World Habitat Day 2017, namely “Housing Policies: Affordable Homes” with a view to helping middle-class Africans buy, in the words of the company’s CEO, the architect Dontou H. Dérou, “an environmentally friendly and quality home at a competitive price: A revolution with affordable homes starting at 7,000,000 CFA francs, approximately 10,000 euros”.
Wellcity.O2 offers an assortment of solidly built single-story homes: bay windows, ceramic tiling, solid industrial doors and plumbing of excellent quality, with seven (7) different interior types: F2, F2+, F3, F3+, F4, F4+ and F5. Two to five rooms of 50m² to 130m² with progressive options including gardens and garage spaces for one or two vehicles.
Located in the suburbs of Grand Lomé, some 30 minutes north of the city-centre on National Motorway no.1, this New Town offers 1,000 homes (500 single-story houses, 200 duplexes and 300 apartments), equipped with a water park, MICE hotel, school, healthcare clinic and shops.
Partially financed by the Corisbank International Group, Wellcity offers three essential assets depending on the promoters: security of the location, standardised homes with quality building materials and, finally, long-term bank loans for fifteen to twenty years at subsidised rates with local banks: Corisbank International, Ecobank, Orabank, Boa, Banque Atlantique and BIA, a subsidiary of the Attijariwafa banking group. “Wellcity was designed to facilitate access to property for the middle class”, assured the group’s CEO.
