Hong Kong-based Shangri-La owns and operates hotels under the brand names Shangri-La, Hotel Jen, Traders, Kerry, Rasa, Summer Palace, and Shang Palace.

Perennial paid $15.2 million for a 55 percent stake of the site in Accra from Shangri-La, which owns the 12.3 acre plot, according to DealStreet.

Management will be jointly by Perennial and Shangri-la Asia, though the hotel property will be solely managed by a subsidiary of Shangri-La.

The development is expected to be complete in 2019, according to DealStreetAsia.
