Eko Atlantic, officially Nigeria's International Commercial City is a planned city of Lagos State, Nigeria, being constricted on land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean
The project is privately funded by South Energyx Nigeria Limited – the developers and city planners, a subsidiary of the Nigeria-based Chagoury Group of companies – working in strategic partnership with the Lagos State Government and supported by the Nigerian federal government. Notable national and international banks have been quick to capitalise on the opportunities with three of Nigeria’s biggest – FCMB, First Bank and Guaranty Trust Bank – partnering with Eko Atlantic, with support from BNP Paribas Fortis and KBC. For savvy investors, Eko Atlantic City represents far more than just surging Lagos land value. As Nigeria continues its unstoppable trajectory to become the financial capital of Africa, investing in Eko Atlantic opens unprecedented opportunities for tapping into the wider potential of the continent as a whole – widely recognised as the world’s most promising growth horizon.
Eko Atlantic is a marvel of modern engineering and technology, and a testament to the rise of Nigeria on the world stage.
This new city has evolved rapidly from a visionary design concept into a technological reality. Infrastructural road works and underground surface drainage pipes are already laid along major routes across the new city. Piling works are complete for the many bridges. And The Great Wall of Lagos sea revetment, which is being built more than two kilometres offshore at eight-and-a-half metres above sea level, has surpassed 5 kilometres in length and is now protecting over 5 million square metres of Eko Atlantic and Victoria Island.
Across Eko Atlantic, independent reliable electricity, advanced fibre optic telecoms, and clean water utility services are already installed below street level. With the foundations in place, this magnificent engineering and technological city is now rising.
