Housing remains a major challenge for many urban cities across Nigeria. As both property development firms and the government search for affordable housing for all Nigerians, an expert has put the country’s current housing deficit at about 17 million.
In this light, private estate developer, Ilubirin Foreshore Projects Limited is committed to providing affordable modern luxury. Situated in the heart of Lagos, Ilubirin is set to usher in a new era of affordable modern houses.
Lagos will witness the launch of the Ilubirin waterfront community and its premier collection of luxury apartments in March 2019. Ilubirin would be located on the northwest coast of Lagos Island, centrally positioned between the mainland and core districts of Lagos for easy accessibility. The most important feature of the launch is the introduction of the premier collection which is the first phase of residential units. The premier collection would offer a total of 108 spacious apartments across five elegant blocks.
The premier collection is targeted at Lagos’ growing upper-middle class which has so far been under-served when it comes to affordable yet stylish housing. The collection is also a clear feature of affordability meeting luxury; a new quality of apartments, a new and inclusive community for Lagos Island, and a place for families, couples and a home for individuals. Residents will be conveniently close to all the local amenities, as well as the area’s new school and medical centre.
The ambience of the environment is top notch with Ilubirin’s buildings surrounded by a host of trees and plantings, with apartment balconies from which to enjoy the spectacular waterfront community views, and sophisticated interior specifications. A sense of arrival is provided by the spacious and refined entrance lobbies and the management service will ensure a clean and safe environment in which all can live with the benefit of 24/7 security and primary resident intercom system controlling access.
As one of the top real estate markets on the continent, Nigerian property development firms continue to explore the market for unique waterfront property which experts say could attract seven buyers per property.
The developers hope the Premier Collection will prove an attractive investment for Nigerians living overseas who wish to have a bolthole in Lagos and the international lifestyle to which they have become accustomed. They believe it will also appeal to young professionals based in Lagos and looking for a beautiful apartment in a safe and lively community they can call home.
The Premier Collection will undoubtedly cater to Lagos’s growing, upper middle class which has so far been under-served when it comes to affordable yet stylish housing.
More than just the first affordable luxury mixed-development in Lagos, Ilubirin will be a new district incorporating medical facilities, schools, shopping boulevards and public squares, offices, a hotel, performance and leisure spaces, a marina, and landscaped gardens in addition to the residential apartments
Elevated beaches and boardwalks, waterside restaurants and cafes and sports facilities will line the lagoon. The broad tree-lined central boulevard will be the principal shopping street, leading to the busy and stylish main square, while the whole area will be enveloped in a public park and wetlands, teeming with birds and wildlife.
New sporting facilities, running routes and gym are planned to ensure those who work and live in Ilubirin can make the very most out of life.
Within Ilubirin’s central district will be an impressive variety of bright, light offices and workspace for organisations of every size. Contemporary architecture, high internal specification and an engaging sense of arrival will ensure appropriate homes and headquarters for ambitious local and international companies.
Ilubirin is unlike any other development in Lagos in that the developers are not simply building an estate, but they are creating a vibrant community and waterfront experience where people can live, work and play.
The Premier Collection is slated for completion by the second quarter of 2020 with the remaining phases due to begin shortly after.
