The project is envisioned by the Lebanese for Lagos. It isn't clear if this going to get beyond this level of construction. Lagos needs to sell its boyant housing market beyond the Africa and mideast to get the best out of constructions. This is where the Eko Atlantic City needs to be carefully monitored for the best construction works.

Thats is absurd.

The largest concentration of such development is probably in the Middle East.

Even Lebanon has its share of grand projects.

Why don't you build the ones that the poor man can afford?
I agree with you. Is it not the governments responsibility to provide social housing. The investors of these blocks are looking for optimum profits. It all economic. I just wish people will leave investors alone and not take them through this guilt trip al the time.
