With the look of things, so many Nigerians may not be too eager to travel to the Arabian Dubai City in some years to come; as Nigerians will be having something similar seated right in the mega city of Lagos .

The Eko Atlantic City as it is called, is a relatively new city apparently modelled after Dubai . The city is being developed in the beautiful Victoria Island of the city of Lagos, in Lagos State , Nigeria . Many may have heard about it ; nonetheless, not so many are up-to-date with its latest development.

The city of Eko Atlantic is being built on a huge mass of land which was initially lost to the ocean , but was later recovered. That land mass turned out to be an appendage to the victoria island.

The city is being built from scratch, with a top class modern day standard. The city aims at providing luxury living for Nigerians who can afford it, jobs for Nigerians who need them and at the same time, contribute to the already booming economy of Lagos through its tourism potentials.


Who are the City Developers?

State Or Federal Government?


Eko Atlantic City is neither being developed primarily by the Federal Government or State government. It is a private development by the Chagoury group . The Chagoury group is family business group of Lebanese Nigerians , whose ancestors naturalized in Nigeria in the last 40 years ago. It is however important to note that the project still gets some secondary support from the Federal and State Government.

"South Energyx" Nigeria Limited serve as Eko Atlantic City's developers, funders and planners. They are a subsidiary of the Chagoury Group of Companies.


Here Is The Current Developmental Progress Of The City

Located at the Marina district of the city, this set of 3 high-rise housing structures will serve as a multi-purpose project.

Drainage System

A coastal city will require a proper drainage system. Unlike most Nigerian cities, Eko Atlantic is opting for an underground drainage system. The concrete pipes used for this project are said to be produced in the pipe factory located in Eko Atlantic City.







The Great Wall Of Lagos


To prevent this coastal city from ocean surge, the "Great Wall Of Lagos" has been installed for that . The wall is a strong system of interlocking Accropodes, which were carefully installed at the shore line of the city. The sea wall has so far reached a total length of 6.5km (out of the proposed 8.5km).

The wall of Lagos is expected to withstand the worst possible storms from the Atlantic ocean in many decades to come.
