In a few years, Moka Smart City will welcome the new buildings of the Embassy of the United States. It is along the M1 motorway, on 47,600 m² (11.8 acres) of land, that this multi-building complex will be erected. A stone’s throw from Bagatelle shopping centre, 20 minutes from the capital and only 10 minutes from Ebene, it enjoys a strategic location and will be a secure, sustainable and modern space… Overview.
A solid commitment towards Mauritius
While the kick-off of the project has not been set yet, the acquisition of this plot of land symbolises the long-lasting commitment of the United States to our island. The US government is thus ensuring its presence in the country for years to come while promoting US diplomacy on the island.
David Reimer, American Ambassador has stated that the purchase of these lands is a strong message which his country is sending to the Mauritian people, reflecting a long-term partnership. The United States and Mauritius have a solid economic and security relationship and this new embassy shall offer an ideal platform to strengthen this cooperation.
A praiseworthy gesture which comes along with several advantages. Indeed, by investing over $ 250 million for the planning, design and construction of this new embassy, the US government will support employment in the region, as well as local businesses. Excellent news for the Mauritian economy! In addition, this approach will further encourage development projects in the region, promoting the creation of additional businesses and jobs.
With a focus on sustainable development, the new embassy will be energy efficient and shall use the latest technologies and viable approaches, while respecting the environment and local resources. It will combine architecture, design and art, emphasising the stability and balance of bilateral relations between the United States and Mauritius.
A solid partnership and a long-term vision... A large-scale project which can only be beneficial for the country.
