The Nigerian luxury property sector, Saturday, received a new entrant, Ocean City Lagos, appropriately named “Jewel of the Atlantic”.
Conceived to set new standards in high-end living, Ocean City Lagos, Nigeria’s newest man-made island, is located off the Lagos coast of the Atlantic Ocean, offering a luscious eco-tourism landscape sprinkled with the continent’s hippest residential neighbourhoods, mixed-use space with high-end shops, restaurants, public parks, centres for sports, arts and entertainment, medical innovation.
A major feature of Ocean City Island will be Africa’s most prestigious address in the shape of the continent’s tallest skyscraper- a symbol of glitz, glamour and magnet to tourists from around the world.
In close proximity to the already congested Ikoyi, Victoria Island and Lekki Residential Scheme 1 neighbourhoods, Ocean City Lagos, which sits atop 308 hectares reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean stretching from the Kuramo Waters along the Peninsula, is accessible via an extension of the popular Ahmadu Bello Way.
It will also be served by the proposed Ocean City Airport, Cruise Terminal and ground transportation hub linking its business, cultural and residential districts to the rest of the country and the world.
Its picturesque and idyllic location aside, Ocean City Lagos is being developed as the heart of a fast-changing Lagos metropolis, transforming the city’s coastline into the world’s next 5G-powered location of futuristic and eco-friendly super-luxury homes and neighbourhoods with a generous splash of the best in medical innovation, arts, entertainment, sports and other strains of recreation.
These will be undergirded by technology-based infrastructure that delivers uninterrupted supply of power, clean water, top-tier sanitation and effective drainage; environmental initiatives to lessen carbon footprint, particularly flora and fauna protection. It will also offer progressive physical planning, the type obtainable in the world’s most luxurious property locations.
Ocean City Lagos is promoted by Ocean City Lagos Limited, an affiliate of the 43-year-old Sea Global Energy with a sterling track record built over the years on ample insights on the most efficient technology-adoption ways to impact in the retail, communications and real estate sectors.
In 2003, Sea Global Energy was granted an approval by the Federal Government to reclaim 350 hectares of land from the Atlantic Ocean, rights to which have been assigned to its Special Purpose Vehicle, Ocean City Lagos Limited.
Ocean City Lagos consists of five districts: Gladys, Madaki, Aremu, Adesola and Five Cowries Districts.
The Gladys District, conceived as a wholly residential location, is devoted to indulgently opulent, ocean-front homes and private marinas. Complementing Gladys will be the swanky residential towers dwellings with private marinas.
