70% of the land in Eko Atlantic City has been sold.

40% of it is owned by Banks and other financial institutions.

They rushed to buy the land before the value increases.

Good to know, and they bought the already reclaimed land or land that has yet to be recovered?

They are also buying land that hasn't been reclaimed.

It doesn't really matter if the land is reclaimed or not.....since there is a Masterplan.

You buy based off the Masterplan. However it is not definite if all that land has really been sold, it is just speculated.

I need to read other sources though to be sure of all of this. Sometimes people phrase things with ambiguity so things can be lost in translation.

A lot of physical Infrastructure is also expected to appear this year.

work has started on the first tower!


Quote:
Eko Pearl, being built by Eko Pearl Nig. Ltd in association with *ESLA Int, is a 24 story residential tower located on the harbor front in Lagos' brand new city, "Eko Atlantic."

Residents of this brand new luxury tower will be able to enjoy uninterrupted views of the water as they take in the endless breeze from the ocean.

In addition to living in the newest prime area of Lagos, residents will enjoy first class infrastructure facilities, including: uninterrupted power, water, and security services. Amenities in Eko Pearl, in addition to what Eko Atlantic city will offer, will also include a swimming pool and tennis courts.
Quote:

The tower sits in a self contained area with safe and secure parking. It is just under 500 meters away from the financial center of Lagos.

The location is close enough to not have to endure long drives to work, but far enough to enjoy the splendor of quiet living.


FACILITIES

Under ground or Ground floor parking for Apartments.
Storage space for each apartment.

LANDSCAPING

SPA, Swimming pool,Plantation, lighting, paving, fence, ,

There is already a thread for Eko Pearl Tower and work started on it a little before April 2011. So by now I'm sure they have made much progress.

This is valued at 5 Billion Naira (I don't know if this is the total project cost)

I wonder if this timeline already takes into account the new dredger that was brought in last year which is suppose to make work move faster.
