Eko Atlantic is a dynamic new city that will rise from the Atlantic Ocean, adjacent to Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria – the biggest and fastest growing city in West Africa. It will be built on land that is being reclaimed from the sea, and is now for sale.
This new Nigerian city will rise from what was in existence over a hundred years ago. Land reclamation work is already on track to create solid foundations extending over nine square kilometres. This will support a new urban development the size of the Manhattan district of New York City.
The proposed designs for Eko Atlantic received international acclaim in 2009 when the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) recognised Eko Atlantic as: “An environmentally conscious city, built with nature to restore an original coastline and to protect Victoria Island, Lagos, from the severe risk of ocean surge and flooding...”.
Eko Atlantic will change the face of Africa and will transform Lagos into a successful mega city-state. This state will provide space for the 25 million people expected to live and work in the region by the year 2015. Eko Atlantic is a creative and ambitious development and is rapidly becoming a source of great national pride in Nigeria.
The planned residential and commercial property development in Eko Atlantic will ease the current pressure on the exhausted infrastructure and overpopulation on adjacent Victoria Island. Victoria Island is the bustling commercial centre of Lagos. The first phase of building will create a Business District that will stimulate commerce in Nigeria.
Lagos and Eko Atlantic are expected to become the new financial epicentre of West Africa by the year 2020. By that time, Nigeria will be one of the world’s 20 largest economies.
Eko Atlantic will be a city to live and work in. With its tree-lined boulevards, waterways, manicured gardens, elegant plazas, three marinas and a stunning ocean front promenade, the new city will be a complete contrast to the congested, traffic-filled streets of Lagos.
