Renders from Official Website
Ilubirin is a mid-market luxury development on Lagos Island. When completed it will serve as a major accelerator in the transformation of the Lagoon Waterfront. The development objective is to contribute to the vision of the Lagos State Government for prime residential development, leisure, recreation, and tourism.
SourceUnique and exceptional, Ilubirin offers contemporary city living in a vibrant waterfront setting, creating a truly different way of life. A stunning location with tree line avenues in proximity to Victoria Island, Isale-Eko, Obalende and Ikoyi where you can experience the social and cultural scenery of Lagos. It is also a nexus between the Lagos mainland via Yaba and the greater Lagos Island.
Stylish waterfront location
Ease of access from the mainland and Island
Commitment to live work play
These kinds of projects make me skeptical. Even though I believe they are badly needed, somehow these kinds of projects only remain renders. I'll do some more research into the developers. This would be a very inspirational development if executed.
There already is a clear departure from the designs in the render. The image above shows buildings with a pyramid type roof.
While I don’t think the finished product will be a carbon copy of the render, note that those buildings actually precede the render.There already is a clear departure from the designs in the render. The image above shows buildings with a pyramid type roof.
So that was a lie...The Lagos State Government has stated that the construction of the first phase of the Ilubirin Housing Scheme will be completed by end of 2018 while sales to members of the public will commence during Q1:2019.
Developers build for the local market (including local preferences), and as suitable to their financial and other capacity.Maybe someone can answer this question for me. With so many millions of people crammed into the city already and countless thousands more moving into it every year, why aren't these developers more focused on building high tower developments. These low tower buildings placed on rather large portions of real estate seem kinda shorted sighted of those developing them. The government should be guiding developers into high tower development with a small foot print, for space conservation.
Developments should at least be more dense then, like row houses or larger apartment buildings. It seems the only private mass housing developments in Lagos are the older ones (like 1004) which I think we need more of.Developers build for the local market (including local preferences), and as suitable to their financial and other capacity.
I agree, with the way things are going now, Lagos is looking at running out of land to develop in possibly the next 20 years. At that point, many of these types of project will need to be forced to be torn down, and redeveloped into high tower apartment complexes. These little 10 and 16 story buildings are pointless in a rapidly growing city like Lagos in my humble opinion.Developments should at least be more dense then, like row houses or larger apartment buildings.

Lagos has urban development masterplans (also known as model city plans) for VI/Ikoyi, Lekki, Ikeja, Agege, Apapa, Alimosho, Mainland Central/Lagos Island, Ikorodu and Badagry. In addition, model city plans were/are being developed for Epe, Kosofe and Oshodi-Isolo.Also, is there no masterplan that Lagos follows?! It's almost as if urban planners are non-existent in the state and its not the first time this has been said. Maybe they don't have enough power because they should be able to control building regulations as well I believe but it seems every building is designed independently without any regards to land use or how it fits into the city.
