Knight Frank, an estate management firm, has collaborated with Rainbow Town to bring together stakeholders in the real estate sector and other discernable investors from across the continent to boost jobs and investment opportunities in real estate in Nigeria
The Knight Frank/ Rainbow Town world business forum is billed to take place at the Le Meridien Ogeyi Place, Port Harcourt, on September 25, 2014.
Speaking to newsmen in Lagos on the impact of the forum to the Nigeria’s economy, Chief A. Orizu, the senior partner of Knight Frank stated that the partnership will open a new chapter in the real estate sector by creating jobs and investment opportunities for Nigerians.
He said: “The corporate investment session is being put together by both organisations to create job opportunities, accelerate the sale and occupancy of the Rainbow Town Estates – first in Sub- Saharan Africa.”
“The Rainbow Town brand has moved from conception to reality while the expertise of Knight Frank is solidly behind the investment and job opportunities that will make it a life time investment for potential investors,” he added
He informed that the speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Otemlemaba Amachree is leading the Rivers State delegation to the event, while captains of industry in Nigeria, Africa and across the globe have confirmed their participation at the forum.
“The investment profile of Rainbow Town which is put at about N80 billion upon completion, requires nothing less than a strategic gathering, where would-be investors can interact with promoters of the estate with a view to seeking validation of the proposition,” he said.
Orizu, who emphasized that the investment meeting will among other activities give detailed and graphic view of what the future of real investment in real estate business in Africa will be, noted that the forum will afford corporate organizations and influential individuals the rare opportunity of interacting with the promoters of the project.
“The MD/CEO of Rainbow Town Development Limited, Chima Ucheya will be leading a very powerful delegation of his team to the forum, while the who-is-who in real estate, pension fund management, sovereign trust managers, Oil & Gas czars and investment bankers will be on hand to pitch for a slice of the mouthwatering offer,” he further said.
