LAGOS | Intercontinental Hotel | 100m | 22 fl | Com

Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos Nigeria





It is only just an high rise in this section at 100m

Construction has begun on InterContinental Lagos, InterContinental Hotels
Quote:
Group’s first property in Nigeria. The owning company, the Milan Group, is spending approximately $80 million on the prestigious project, which is set to be the tallest hotel in the country at 100 metres high.

The development, which is centrally located on Victoria Island, will cater for a steadily increasing number of business travellers arriving in Nigeria, as the country goes through a period of renewed investment in its infrastructure.

The development is a clear reflection of InterContinental Hotel Group’s confidence in the city, which is seen as a thriving commercial hub of Nigeria. Surrounded by creeks, lagoons and rivers, Lagos has undergone substantial development and has steadily witnessed a vast expansion of local industries.

In 1999 the United Nations predicted that the city's metropolitan area, which had only 290,000 inhabitants in 1950, would exceed 20 million by 2010. The new government is therefore focused on increasing investment in the city’s infrastructure to support this growth. International help came from the World Bank in 2006 when it granted US$200 million for the Lagos Metropolitan Development and Governance Project, aimed at improving urban areas.

Inbound travel is also on the increase with the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) predicting that Nigeria's travel and tourism will grow 1.6% in 2007 and by 2.0% per annum, in real terms, between 2008 and 2017.

InterContinental Lagos will feature 230 Standard Rooms, each measuring 42 square meters, 87 Club Rooms, 31 Bay Suites, one Junior and one Presidential Suite. Food and beverage options include an all day dining restaurant with a view of a seven metre high waterfall, a 116-seater lobby bar, two speciality restaurants and a Garden Café.

A full health club including steam and sauna rooms, as well as a 22 metre swimming pool will allow guests to indulge in a state-of-the-art relaxation programme. Water sports and beach activities for both adults and children will be provided, offering guests the opportunity to take full advantage of Victoria Island’s beaches.

Top-of-the-range business facilities include IP telephony, wired and wireless connectivity throughout the hotel, and a 1300 square metre meeting room with seating capacity of 870. Board Room and Business Centre are available to guests along with five meeting rooms spread over 400 square meters.

IHG’s entrance into the Nigerian market will further strengthen its position within Africa, with two already existing InterContinental properties and current plans to open 10 hotels across the InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Express by Holiday Inn brands by the end of 2010.

Not bad. But could be taller. Especially in a city like Lagos.
