Eko Atlantic City Completes Eko Boulevard, Nigeria's First Eight Lane City Road

Eko Atlantic City, a unique,
innovative development, in a
vibrant environment with 21st
century facilities on the coast of
Lagos, has reached advanced
stages in the first 5 million sq. metres of the project.
The city not only boasts of
independent power and water
supply, seamless
communications network but
also an extensive citywide road network. This will be the first of
its kind in Lagos and Nigeria.
The city, which is divided into
eight districts, is planned for
mixed-use with commercial,
residential, entertainment and leisure activities to make the city
a 24/7 lively environment. City
amenities and services will
include an international school,
hospital, and a high quality
shopping mall, the largest in sub-Saharan Africa.
The city’s road design and
construction has been built
according to world’s best
practices with beautifully paved
sidewalks, tree-lined and streetlights completed with a
stunning ocean view. One of the
considerations when developing
the Eko Atlantic city was to
guarantee free flowing traffic.
This has now been achieved with the major road network
recently completed. The
extensive road networks now
clearly defined with an area in
excess of 200,000 sq. metres.
Most significantly Eko Boulevard, an 8-lane Boulevard, 1500M
long ( similar to the 5th Avenue
in New York) the focal point of
the Business District is fully
completed from Ahmadu Bello
Way on Victoria Island to the Ocean front, where an exquisite
waterfront entertainment is
being planned.
“We are extremely proud to
have achieved another major
milestone in the development of Eko Atlantic City. This futuristic
city is not just for residential and
commercial activities but a tourist
attraction. We strongly believe
the new boulevard will enhance
business activities and be the ideal location for company
headquarters, luxury and
business hotels and also
residential elements as well as
attracting tourists from all over
Africa,” says Ronald Chagoury Jr. In addition, the city’s
infrastructure network makes it
the most technically advanced
city in Nigeria. It comes with a
fully integrated autonomous and
reliable infrastructure networks with all its underground service
pipes installed under the
extensive paved sidewalks
(such as the storm-water drains,
sewer drains, water supply
piping, power cables and IT network).
In 2006 South Energyx Nigeria
Limited, a subsidiary of The
Chagoury Group was awarded
the concession to reclaim land,
develop infrastructure and act as the exclusive authority over the
development of Eko Atlantic city,
next to Victoria Island in Lagos.
Furthermore, South Energyx
Nigeria Limited was specifically
created to oversee the planning and development of Eko Atlantic,
the new city of Lagos.
