A solution to many problems
What began as an endeavour to protect the coastline of Victoria Island from sea erosion became a land reclamation project on a colossal scale, surrounded by a sea wall built to last 1,000 years. On top of this rises a solution to the chronic shortage of prime real estate in Lagos, and the need for a new financial headquarters for Nigeria – the largest economy in Africa.
Eko Atlantic is not only providing vital space for people to live and work adjacent to Victoria Island. It is a symbol of Nigeria’s pride and pivotal in achieving the nation’s pledge to become a top 20 economic power; a beacon for international business and tourism.

How does Eko Atlantic help?
The city’s new infrastructure also enable it to earn carbon credits:
- An efficient electricity generation plant will provide an uninterrupted power supply.

- This will mean that Eko Atlantic will not be dependent on diesel and will not be troubled by the waste from badly serviced tanks, or from the noise pollution.
- A dedicated sewage treatment plant will keep the city healthy and safe.
- Clean water will be pumped from the city’s own treatment plants and distribution mains.
- State-of-the-art communications will support business and personal networking on a local and global level.
- Nigeria has one of the fastest-growing telecoms markets in the world with major companies such as MTN, Airtel and Globacom all located in Lagos.
