A leading property developer, Victoria Crest Homes (VCH), has launched two sustainable housing estates in Lagos.
In Lagos, Capital Gardens Estate, Ibeju-Lekki, an expansive housing project designed as a hub of sustainable housing, was officially launched Tuesday by VCH, a company under the Nedcomoaks umbrella.
In addition, the company launched its state-of-the-art sustainable housing project, Citadel Views Estate, behind Lagos Business School (LBS).
“Our business strategy is powered by the belief that we can help build a better, more comfortable world through the delivery of decent, affordable housing for all and sundry.
To us, building homes is more than a business, it is an opportunity to add value to the society by helping people achieve their dreams,” said Group Managing Director, Nedcomoaks, Dr Kennedy Okonkwo, who celebrated his birthday alongside the take-off of the two estates.
“This principle drives all our innovative and distinctive housing projects across Lagos State and now drives the Capital Gardens Estate Scheme, the Lagos sustainable city that will be one of its kind in Africa as well as the ultramodern, eco-friendly Citadel Views Estate,” he added.
The city of Lagos has a population of over 20 million residents and at least 500,000 new visitors each year.
It needs more homes to accommodate its huge, fast-growing population. There is also a pollution problem in Lagos. For the housing and pollution problems to be addressed, it will take innovations that will provide affordable and comfortable homes that are also sustainable and eco-friendly.
With its ultramodern housing estates, including Capital Gardens and Citadel Views, VCH is making considerable progress in solving these problems with its mantra of making aspirational living affordable.
Located in Idera, Ibeju-Lekki, close to the Lekki Free Trade Zone and Eleko Beach, the master plan for the 40-hectare sustainable Capital Gardens Estate includes affordable, sustainable homes with clean energy solutions.

The estate will also include a technology hub where brilliant youths can connect, learn, relax, and create indigenous innovative solutions, as well as a vocational centre where young people can acquire various skills.
The Citadel Views Estate is located in Olokonla, Eti-Osa Local Government, just behind the Lagos Business School. There is no other housing model like it in Lagos, which emphasizes sustainable living.
This is being done alongside other modern technology solutions designed to enhance the living experience of its residents, including a stealth security system, world-class recreational areas, and water treatment facilities.
In her remarks, Okonkwo praised the efforts of the Lagos State government under the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in delivering several housing schemes and introducing innovative initiatives to improve housing in the city.
“However, we cannot abandon the responsibility to the government alone. We know that we must play our part as a private business entity. This is why we have taken these bold steps,” he added.
Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi of Ikate Kingdom; Special Adviser to Lagos State Governor on Housing, Honourable Toke Benson; the General Manager of Lagos New Towns Development Authority (NTDA), Olakunle Aboyeji; and Lead Pastor of The Elevation Church (TEC), Godman Akinlabi, were amongst prominent personalities who attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the estate, which was supported by Fidelity Bank.
Other notable guests at the event include Chairman of Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria (REDAN), Lagos chapter and Group CEO of RevolutionPlus, Bamidele Onalaja; businessman and chairman, Cubana group, Obinna Iyiegbu (Obi Cubana); and CEO of Five Star Group, Emeka Okonkwo (E-money). Music stars Davido and Phyno were present to entertain guests.
