An Atlanta real estate partnership has announced plans to build what could eventually amount of a $6.5 billion entertainment district anchored by a soccer stadium in the West African nation of Ghana.

Transatlantic BDR LLC leaders say they’ve procured an agreement with the local government for access to 16,000 coastal acres near the port city of Tema, just outside the capital of Accra, to progressively build a mammoth, phased mixed-use development.

They say it will position Ghana to attract more international events and visitors while bolstering the area’s road and power infrastructure for the good of Ghana’s logistics sector as well as it overall economy.

Designs for Point of ReturnGhana, as the development is called, call for a convention center, a 60,000-seat, FIFA-compliant soccer stadium (20,000 more seats than the current national stadium), hotels and much more. Boosters say the area will have 6G wireless connectivity, light rail infrastructure and renewable energy generation capacity.
