After over four years of rigorous planning, Messrs Landmark 2007 Global Realty Limited, a member of the Landmark Group of companies will today, formally draw the curtains on the construction of its nine-storey Towers Building in Victoria Island Lagos.
The Landmark Towers project is a mixed use, high-end signature development on a two acre site in the heart of the Lagos central business district. The project, according to the developers, is a “culmination of four years of intricate planning to create a world class facility which will serve as a benchmark for future real estate developments by the Landmark Group”.
Landmark’s Group Head Corporate Finance, Deborah Nicol stated that the project was borne out of the need to address the needs of the company’s growing international clientele in Lagos.
“Landmark developed the “Live.Work.Play” concept. This concept, fully embodied in the nine- storey Landmark Towers development, provides for Grade A office, residential, retail and leisure facilities, all under one secure roof. With a total built up area of approximately 13,500sqm, and external terrace areas measuring 2000sqm, the Landmark Towers will include ample underground parking, a raised ground floor offering convenience retail, six floors of Grade A office space, a penthouse floor offering short stay residential apartments, and a state- of- the- art leisure centre with swimming, tennis and squash courts, gymnasium and spa facilities,” she said.
“Our vision is to provide a real estate and services platform to foster seamless trading for foreign and domestic companies across the African region and globally. Our property development business is built on strong ethical principles and governed by a board and management team of high-valued individuals with solid track records in their different fields of business,” she explained.
The team that handled the project included Messrs Nahman Construction Company Limited as Main Contractor, Majoroh Partnership as Project Architects, Kunoch Construction as Construction Advisors, WSP Costcare Associates as the project Cost Consultants, and Diamond Bank Plc as the financing bank.
