Eko Atlantic is a new coastal city being built along the Atlantic oceanfront in Victoria Island Lagos, Nigeria. 

Firstly to address the dramatic impact of coastal erosion and to solve the chronic shortage of real estate in the world’s fastest-growing megacity.

Approximately ten square kilometers of land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean. 

Upon completion, the city is expected to cater to the needs of financial, commercial, residential, and tourist spaces. The city will provide several thousand residential and commercial accommodations, a hospital, an international school, and be a major tourist site with multiple attractions. 

The project boasts of the latest technologies and innovations in infrastructure development in line with modern and environmental standards. A carefully designed road and interchange network, an independent power system, state-of-the-art water, and waste management system, and security will provide full autonomy to the new city. 

Eko Atlantic development is being carried out as a Public-Private Partnership with private companies and investors providing the funding and technical expertise, Lagos State Government is a strategic partner with the support of the Federal Government.

The project is already at an advanced stage of development, with several buildings fully erected and occupied. 

The project began as a request by the Lagos State Government to find a more resilient and cost-effective solution to the multi-year chronic need to carry out sand refills along the coastal line, to avoid violent floods causing human losses and destruction of habitats and businesses.

There is a strong likelihood that without such fortification or expansion, a large part of Lagos would have collapsed due to the effects of heavy ocean and marine waves on the coastal fronts in the absence of these protective efforts.  

To address and advance the solutions to African cities’ adaptation to climate change through the pioneering approaches implemented by the company. 

Other African cities face equally dramatic impacts of climate change.
