The Nigeria International Commerce City, popularly known as Eko Atlantic City, or the initials E.A.C. and E.A., is a transformed land lost to erosion into a delightful city as described by the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
Eko Atlantic is an entirely new coastal city being built on Victoria Island adjacent to Lagos, Nigeria. It is a focal point for investors capitalizing on rich development growth based on massive demand – and a gateway to emerging markets of the continent.
The EAC is occupying 10 million square metres of land reclaimed from the ocean and protected by an 8.5-kilometre long sea wall, Eko Atlantic will be the size of Manhattan’s skyscraper district. Self-sufficient and sustainable, it includes state-of-the-art urban design, its own power generation, clean water, advanced telecommunications, spacious roads, and tree-lined streets.
