Banana Island is not an offshore development it is part of Lagos Island and is situated inshore at the Lagos Lagoon/Five Crow Creek :) ..and the "Abuja Millenium Tower" you are talking about is just alive in your (and some others) dreams.
1, Yes alive, when it is under construction!!!


^^ The tower and its construction site. The tower is the structure right beside the building..

2, Banana Island is a planned Banana Shaped Island South West of Ikoyi!!


Banana island is a joint venture development between the Construction Division of the Chagoury Group and the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Works and Housing.

Banana Island is a choice location at the South West of Ikoyi. The island is accessed via an existing road network and occupies a sand filled area of approximately 1,630,000 square metres.

The Island has been zoned into 536 plots consisting of 100 closes, which serve to enhance the banana shape of the island.

Plot sizes range from 1000 square metres to 4000 square metres. The island is designed for a mixed development with plots for residential, commercial, recreational areas, a main piazza, primary and secondary schools, fire and police stations, clinics, hotels and club-houses.

Utilities offered include underground electrical systems, an underground water supply network, central sewage system and treatment plant, street lighting and satellite telecommunications networks, as well as overhead and storm water covered drainage.

The Stratosphere has a nice facade. I think the tower is reflective of the new Nigeria, the emerging Gaint!! :cheers2:

As far as Banana Island is concerned


Victoria Island is an island devided by the sea, thats the reason for the many bridges in the area. and there are many sub islands around it such as Banana Island,Tin Can Island, and Snake Island. Banana Island is a choice location at the South West of Ikoyi. The island is accessed via an existing road network and occupies a sand filled area of approximately 1,630,000 square metres.

Arthabitat3, Ich weiss nicht du kommst immer mit der gleichen Sache. Hast du mich vielleicht auf dem Kieker? Ständig die "netten" Seitenhiebe, letzter Zeit. Falls etw. nicht stimmt, dann sag es offen raus und nicht ständig durch die Blume (Ironie, Zynismus und dergleichen)
As far as the Abuja Millenium Tower is concerned it was approved last year. Even the English press featured an article about it. The construction costs for that project are close to $500 million. It sparked off a lot of controversy in the country. I have been looking for the particular article just to prove it, but I currently can´t find it!

If this surpasses NECOM House as the tallest building in all of Lagos, I hope various other skyscrapers taller or shorter than this can be built. NECOM House is about 140 metres tall.
