Eko Atlantic officially Nigerian International Commerce City, also known as Eko Atlantic City, is the new coastal city, being built on Victoria Island, Adjacent to Lagos, Nigeria to solve the chronic shortage of Real Estate in the world’s fastest-growing megacity. It is a focal point for investors capitalizing on rich development growth based on massive demand and a gateway to emerging markets of the continent.
The US Consulate held its Groundbreaking Ceremony on the 31st of March, 2022 which housed many dignitaries from all over the world, and this officially marked the beginning of the modern consulate building. Moreso, the date for the commencement of construction of this project is yet to be released, but more so, it already has a good number of impacts in Eko Atlantic City, which include;
- The new consulate is said to provide a modern space for the largest consular operation in Africa, including improved public-facing interview and waiting areas,
- Upon completion, it is said to be the ‘Largest U.S. Consulate in the world, demonstrating the importance of the relationship between the United States and Nigeria,
- It has made Eko Atlantic city more desirable and will most likely spur other private investors to equally give this location another look,
- Due to its significance, it has given more credence to its immediate environment where it’s situated (phase 3), hence making it the most expensive and secured location amongst other locations in Eko Atlantic City.
- The placement of the US Consulate General office in Eko Atlantic city is expected to attract more major companies/businesses and foster business growth in the area as most of the buildings are residential,
- The project will directly benefit the Nigerian people, through the employment of approximately 2,500 Nigerian citizens, including engineers, architects, artisans, construction workers and admin staff, who will learn new technical skills and safety awareness that will help distinguish them in the local market and the likes.
With the above mentioned and more, you will agree with me that Eko Atlantic City is one of the most sought after in the heart of Lagos, as it has won the hearts of many due to its enormous features, not to mention its eccentric facilities.
