The Urban Community of Ebolowa (CUE) will conduct a project aiming at building 146 social housing units in the capital of the southern region. “The goal is to provide decent housing for the population,” the city's new mayor, Daniel Edjo'o, said.
Financed with the assistance of the Cameroon Real Estate Company (Sic), the Special Fund for Equipment and Intercommunal Intervention (Feicom), and the Cameroon Land Credit (CFC), this social housing project will cost CFA5.254 billion.
According to the Director-General of Sic, Ahmadou Sardaouna, it will involve the construction of 14 buildings of type R+4, five apartments of type T3 or T4. The site will also be equipped with a 200-space car park, a garden, a school, a commercial patio, a multi-sports center, and many other amenities.
The ambition to invest in social housing dates back to 2012. According to the municipality of Ebolowa, the project has been resized, “to make its realization safe, and also more suitable to be integrated into the great crossroads of Ela.”
