Too much sprawl, NOT GOOD. Nigerian developers should look towards more sustainable solutions in order to reduce the housing deficit, as opposed to building these sprawled out boomburgs.

This is rather suspicious, Its the same plan as the abuja technological village with a plane flying past. Fraudulent to say the least.

There's no single highrise in the masterplan.
its like jos is anti high rise. besides banks there are 2 actual high rise in the entire city (from what i remember there could be more) and if you want you can say there are three. the tallest building topped out but construction never finished.

another pipedream, still waiting for the Abuja Technology Village taking shape ..a project that was annouced and approved ages ago!
The Abuja Technology Village is still an active project (the AIST and a few other projects are already on ground), using the Dubai Internet City as one of its reference models. However, a real risk in planning projects in Nigeria is that an incoming adminstration will either reverse, jettison, slow-track or simply place on the back-burner, the projects started by its predecessor. Frankly, this seems to be the current fate of the Abuja Technology Village (which only received a N3.5 billion allocation in the current budget), as the current YarAdua administration does not appear particularly enthusiastic in its early implementation.

Apart from Fashola (and a few minor exceptions), it is routine for new govts in Nigeria to disavow or neglect projects embarked upon by preceding administrations and seek their own narrow definitions of a legacy. On another thread on the forum discussing the delays on the Second Niger Bridge project, it was noted that the current Delta State govt has reportedly reneged on the previous state administration's signed agreement to part-finance (to the tune of 10%) the construction of the new bridge, and that seemed to enjoy the support of some on the forum. So maybe it's understandable why new administrations take such actions.

I thought the Technology Village was under construction.... I'll do some research.

That's is a reason for fairlure. Incomplete projects litter the whole places just in the name of legacy.Legacy by defination affirmatively has something to do with completion.That's shame on their own side and, they have to be held responsible.
