Summit Hills is a development located north of the City of Calabar, which will include a host of mixed use elements. Akin to Tinapa, the project is based on the vision of the current Governor of the state, in a bid to transform the Calabar economy ‘one hill at a time’. The mission is to build an economic engine that creates jobs, increases the economic potential and builds on the strengths of Cross River State.

Elements of the project include the Calabar International Convention Centre (CICC), Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Calabar Golf Course and Clubhouse, Calabar Specialist Hotel, Golf Residences, Carnival Village and a Nature Reserve.

[row_column]Nature Reserve[/row_column]
[row_column]This will include a reserve for endangered monkeys native to Cross River State and nature trials.[/row_column]



This new development will work hand in hand with Tinapa, as a monorail system with a seating capacity of 78 persons per trip, will transport guests to and from the Tinapa side of the Calabar Channel. Tinapa offers a much larger retail offering than Summit Hills so there is an advantage to both parties if the two developments synergise. The monorail will also provide access to Studio Tinapa and Tinapa Water Park.

Finally, the Summit Hills development intends to be self sufficient in the delivery of the power generation via a local power plant situated nearby.
