28 Oct Victoria Crest Homes Flags off Sustainable Housing Estates in Lagos
Leading property development company, Victoria Crest Homes (VCH), has flagged off two sustainable housing estates in Lagos.
On Tuesday, VCH, a company under the Nedcomoaks umbrella, hosted the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of Capital Gardens Estate, Ibeju-Lekki, an expansive housing project designed as a hub of sustainable housing in Lagos. On the same day, the company launched its technology-driven state of the arts sustainable housing project, Citadel Views Estate, behind Lagos Business School (LBS).
“Our business strategy is powered by the belief that we can help build a better, more comfortable world through the delivery of decent, affordable housing for all and sundry. To us, building homes is more than a business, it is an opportunity to add value to the society by helping people achieve their dreams,” said Group Managing Director, Nedcomoaks, Dr. Kennedy Okonkwo, who celebrated his birthday alongside the take-off of the two estates.
“This principle drives all our innovative and distinctive housing projects across Lagos State and now drives the Capital Gardens Estate Scheme, the Lagos sustainable city that will be one of its kind in Africa as well as the ultramodern, eco-friendly Citadel Views Estate,” he added.
With over 20 million residents and at least 500,000 new visitors every year, Lagos needs more homes for its huge, fast-growing population. Alongside the housing problem in Lagos, there is a pollution problem. Solving the housing and pollution problems requires innovations that will result in comfortable and affordable homes that will be sustainable and eco-friendly. With its mantra of making aspirational living affordable, VCH is making considerable progress in solving these problems with its ultramodern housing estates, including the Capital Gardens and Citadel Views.
Located in Idera, Ibeju-Lekki, and within proximity to the Lekki Free Trade Zone and Eleko Beach, the masterplan of the 40-hectare sustainable Capital Gardens Estate includes homes that will be affordable and sustainable, with the deployment of efficient, clean energy solutions. The estate will also include a technology hub for brilliant youths to connect, relax, learn and work on creating indigenous innovative solutions as well as a vocational centre for young people to learn various useful skills.
Citadel Views Estate is located at Olokonla, Eti-Osa Local Government, just behind the Lagos Business School. It is the first of its kind in Lagos, with a housing model focused on sustainable living. This is being done alongside other modern technology solutions designed to elevate the living experience of its residents, such as stealth security system, world-class recreational areas, and water treatment facility.
