Lake Point Towers - Banana Island - Lagos

Designed by ECAD Architects Ltd, these twin towers are located on Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos. The design company describe the project as;

"Lake Point Towers comprises the development of two office towers on a 4,000 m2 property. The development concept for the towers is based on selected market segment being targeted. Lake Point Towers is set to provide a “Grade A”, “luxury” vertical office park to provide premium office spaces and support facilities to high profile companies in the Nigerian corporate market. The development is conceived as a commercial office space with some mixed use elements to enhance its functionality and positioning.

Lake Point Towers Design Concept and Description

Lake Point Towers is set to reflect an innovative, creative, original and cost economical speculative commercial development. The design objective for the towers is to create an uncompromising modern office complex that is ageless, exploring the expressive potential of materials to the limit of their colors and texture, erupting into the urban space with spatial character. Due to its proximity to the water front, Lake Point Towers would soar up like a lighthouse visible from the Lagos third mainland bridge, creating a visible iconic development on the Banana Island.

The concept is definitive, transparent and unwavering, freeing the floor space to the maximum, giving the towers a luminous quality under the sky of Lagos by cladding with highly transparent but reflective curtain walls to maximize daylight within the offices, and with a sunshade crown that would become the identifying symbol of the towers.

An atrium begins at the 2nd floor (the lettable space level) and reaches to the top floor with skylight covering for illumination and openness, providing an interesting configuration for the interior of the towers; and the curves of the external walls form a relationship with the elemental forces of wind and water. The use of glass and aluminium fulfills the ideal of sophisticated, modern and technological buildings.




The project is already underway and is currently in the foundations/piling stage.

Construction Update on the "Blue Line" Lagos Light Rail project

I still have yet to figure out what these large suspended buildings are. Judging by this picture (below)
 perhaps the entire rail network is suspended and so these are the termini/terminuses.

100th post!! New shopping Mall "Abia Mall" in Umuahia

Some visuals of what the proposed building will look like.

"THE Abia State government Thursday began the construction of the N3.7 billion digital Abia Shopping Mall, which has 13 months' delivery target.
Located at the former Cattle Market in Umuahiaand established under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP), the mall is owned by Abia Retail Company (85 per cent equity) and the state (15 per cent) equity, and will be operated by Shoprite.
When operational, it is estimated to employ 500 direct and 5,000 indirect personnel. Governor Theodore Orji, who laid the foundation, said the project was conceived to provide residents of Umuahia with "a one-stop shop."
While the Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Dr. Sampson Orji, described the project as a cutting-edge concept in the supply of all human daily needs, the Managing Director of New Technics Construction Company, which is handling the project, Mr. Enyinnaya Emelogu, asked indigenes to expect the best shopping complex that will compare with what obtains in other states of the countryand beyond.
He indicated that it would be completed within 13 months if all stakeholders live up to the terms of the contract."
