Say Good Bye, Eko Atlantic, Welcome Ocean City
-------------------------

The Nigerian luxury property sector has received a new entrant, Ocean City Lagos, appropriately named “Jewel of the Atlantic”.

Conceived to set new standards in high-end living, Ocean City Lagos, Nigeria’s newest man-made island, is located off the Lagos coast of the Atlantic Ocean, offering a luscious eco-tourism landscape sprinkled with the continent’s hippest residential neighbourhoods, mixed-use space with high-end shops, restaurants, public parks, centres for sports, arts and entertainment, medical innovation.

A major feature of Ocean City Island will be Africa’s most prestigious address in the shape of the continent’s tallest skyscraper- a symbol of glitz, glamour and magnet to tourists from around the world.


In close proximity to the already congested Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lekki Residential Scheme 1 neighbourhoods, Ocean City Lagos, which sits atop 308 hectares reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean stretching from the Kuramo Waters along the Peninsula, is accessible via an extension of the popular Ahmadu Bello Way.

It will also be served by the proposed Ocean City Airport, Cruise Terminal and ground transportation hub linking its business, cultural and residential districts to the rest of the country and the world.

Its picturesque and idyllic location aside, Ocean City Lagos is being developed as the heart of a fast-changing Lagos metropolis, transforming the city’s coastline into the world’s next 5G-powered location of futuristic and eco-friendly super-luxury homes and neighbourhoods with a generous splash of the best in medical innovation, arts, entertainment, sports and other strains of recreation.

These will be undergirded by technology-based infrastructure that delivers uninterrupted supply of power, clean water, top-tier sanitation and effective drainage; environmental initiatives to lessen carbon footprint, particularly flora and fauna protection. It will also offer progressive physical planning, the type obtainable in the world’s most luxurious property locations.

Ocean City Lagos is promoted by Ocean City Lagos Limited, an affiliate of the 43-year-old Sea Global Energy with a sterling track record built over the years on ample insights on the most efficient technology-adoption ways to impact in the retail, communications and real estate sectors.

In 2003, Sea Global Energy was granted an approval by the Federal Government to reclaim 350 hectares of land from the Atlantic Ocean, rights to which have been assigned to its Special Purpose Vehicle, Ocean City Lagos Limited.

Ocean City Lagos consists of five districts: Gladys, Madaki, Aremu, Adesola and Five Cowries Districts.

The Gladys District, conceived as a wholly residential location, is devoted to indulgently opulent, ocean-front homes and private marinas. Complementing Gladys will be the swanky residential towers dwellings with private marinas. Residences at Gladys arecomplemented by the residential towers of the mixed-use Madaki District, which will offer public art and exclusive access facilities available only at Ocean City Island.

Aremu, the third of the districts, will offer a heady mix of facilities for all art forms, top-tier sports amenities catering to over 20 sport-related activities, including a dedicated football stadium; rowing and equestrian courses, restaurants catering to diverse culinary tastes, luxury shops, hip clubs, a theme park, public outdoor spaces, beaches as well as marinas.

It will also host the 30-hectare Ocean Medical City, a community of world-class medical facilities providing specialist care in various medical fields, a hospital offering between 1,000 and 1,500 bed spaces; a university devoted to medical sciences and research with accommodation for staff and experts.

The fourth district, named Adesola, will host the Ocean City Airport, Cruise Terminal and ground transportation hub connecting Ocean City Island’s business, cultural and residential districts to the rest of Nigeria and the world and is expected to spark significant socio-economic boom for the continent.

The Five Cowries District, an exclusively commercial zone, will provide access to the most up-to-date business infrastructure to attract companies of all sizes and from all industries, host eye-popping events and offer luxury recreational amenities to create a sumptuous meeting point for living, leisure and business.

Sorry but I have to be a critic. This is a terrible use of land management and urban planning. An airport right in the middle of a "luxury" residential district? Right in the middle of the city? Really? I already know this will flop. A stadium for whom? Who ask for it? As soon as I heard them using buzz terms like "5G and futuristic" I already knew this project was B.S.

Also why have that dumb shape? That shape serves absolutely no function or purpose, Another case of form over function. They want it to look cool from space, but in reality on human scale on the ground it's will flop, be soulless and won't function as a city. Just like the palm island and world islands in Dubai failed. Why not just reclaim land from the remain parts of eko Atlantic masterplan?

You only have one transportation outlet (highway) that connects this "city" to the rest of Lagos? How can all that high rises and skyscraper and large amount of car orientated residence going to be sustainable with just one car orientated transport access point?

Also wasn't this area supposed to be were the core infrastructure (sewage treatment plant, water treatment plant, gas power plant, garbage processing, etc). If this Fubu Luxury project is going to get built, where would Eko Atlantic's core infrastructure be located?

From what I have heard, Eko Atlantic couldn't finish the remaining land reclamation only God knows the reason (maybe funding stop coming), then another investor comes in to take over the remaining part.

My opinion why not reclaim the remaining part nd bring out a new design nd makes it look like a continuation of eac.

Doubtful, given that the site approval for this project was made in 2003.

There's no assurance that the location is the approved site for ocean city in 2003. That's clearly EAC site, even EAC city development plan corroborates it. Yes, they approved a city development for ocean city, but it could be anywhere on the Atlantic ocean like every other smaller city developments across d states, not necessarily on EAC's site. EAC flopped at the east side, reason ocean city took over the prime location.

I agree with what @starboydammy said.

First, it is NOT site “approval” but rather EXPLICITLY states that it’s site “allocation” (a distinction with a difference). Thus, it couldn’t possibly be as a RESULT (emphasis added) of anything that is happening with Eko Atlantic almost 20 years AFTER the allocation was made.

As I noted on a different thread (not sure why there are multiple threads on this same newly-announced project), the project site location as it appears here is HOPEFULLY incorrectly-potrayed (or somehow misleading) and we can only await further clarification or clarity as/when/if the project procceds (in itself not a certainty).

I feel sorry for anyone living in Ikoyi, Banana Island and especially VI for they have to endure the noise and vibration caused by aircraft taking off and landing.
They should just relocate the project elsewhere.
