Alaro City, the inclusive new city in the Lekki Free Zone, has won “The Most Notable Development Project” award from the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV).
Speaking at the honours night dinner over the weekend, Alaro City CEO, Odunayo Ojo, thanked NIESV for the recognition and dedicated the award to the team behind the project.
“This is testament to the hard work and dedication by the whole team at Alaro City,” he said, and added that Alaro City’s success “is not possible without the cooperation of our partner; the Lagos State Government.”
In January, Rendeavour, Africa’s largest new city developer, formally launched Alaro City. The city has received fast track investment from Rendeavour due to high demand from the Nigerian market. The first manufacturing facility, constructed on 5.4 hectares, is due to be operational by August. Additional facilities for steel fabrication and fast-moving consumer goods are under development. The first phase of urban infrastructure, including the first three kilometres of road, water supply and an independent power plant, is underway and due for completion by December.
“We congratulate Alaro City on receiving this award,” said Olurogba Orimalade, the Lagos chapter Chairman of NIESV. “Alaro City is providing unique solutions to rapid urban growth, not just to the Lekki Free Zone, but to Lagos State and Nigeria,” he added.
