The Giuliano project, a 10-unit super luxury terrace apartments with two penthouses, is inspired by the great works of the Medici family with the functionality of 21st Century lifestyle.
According to the firm, the project, with a uniquely sophisticated combination of stone, marble and glass, brings exclusivity, location and quality together in one place.
The company noted that each floor has a private elevator, building automation and state-of-the-art features and facilities reserved for one per cent Nigeria’s ultra-high net-worth individuals.
“From the main gate to the master bedroom, every inch is a square metre of exquisite luxury and 80 per cent of the exterior clad with a special Spanish Marble Stone,” the firm stated.
Speaking at a private briefing and viewing of the Giuliano project organised by the company in Lagos at the weekend, Chief Executive Officer, Sujimoto Construction, Mr. Sijibomi Ogundele, said that the project was conceived to meet the luxury needs of Nigerians, explaining that Banana Island has one of the highest occupancy rates in Nigeria with 81 per cent of the luxury houses occupied
His words: “The project will definitely be completed before the 30th of October. It is only residential units and most of the investors are people that bought into it or lease out for investment purposes. Also, it is an affordable luxury apartment which means that it is cheaper than what we have around here (Banana Island) and comparing it to what we have in the market in terms of facilities, we believe we are cheaper than our competitors.
“In designing the project, it is very important for us that whatever we are designing will pass the test of time.
We wanted to give Nigerians value for money. So, we decided to visit almost every pent house and terraces in Ikoyi and Banana Island to set standard and break ground, so that we can develop a very strong competitive advantage over existing projects.
