Nigeria’s foremost residential development company, LandWey Investment Ltd., has unveiled Future City, which is the integration of its New Town Development Project and its pioneer city, Isimi Lagos- Nigeria’s Pioneer Wellness and Technology City, to make city living smarter and sustainable.
This announcement was made at the recently held exclusive press briefing at Landwey’s headquarters which attracted key media and industry players.
The Future City is a new town development project that fuses nature’s green with the technology and invention of humans to improve and preserve the world’s delicate environment while also making city living smarter and more efficient.
CEO Landwey Investment, a member of Oxygen Holdings, Olawale Ayilara, reiterated his goals for Isimi Lagos by asserting that, “We are ecstatic about what this expansion signifies for the future of life. By 2050, it is expected that 70 percent of the world’s population will live in cities, making new towns and settlements the greatest answer to the increasing urbanization that is already taking place. We are rethinking what our cities should be with the help of Future City initiatives like Isimi Lagos in order to successfully house an expanding population of urban dwellers.”
The nature-inspired design of Isimi not only paves the way for the metropolis of Lagos to expand economically at night, but it also raises the possibility of making Nigeria a new travel hotspot on the continent.
As a demonstration of its intent to deepen technological adoption and penetration, Isimi also launched the Isimi Lagos Tech Valley, a destination for all things technological and innovative. The Isimi Tech Valley will include a campus with tech and innovation laboratories, a research center, and incubation work labs for tech firms, to name a few, and will function as both a residential neighborhood and an educational facility.
“The vision for Isimi Lagos Tech Valley is to build Nigeria and Africa’s future generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, and creators while ensuring that youthful talents are developed into established problem solvers” Ayilara commented.
A conservation park, golf course, recreation area, farm-to-table restaurant, helipad, water jetty, electric car charging stations, forestry, hiking trails, and a traditional polo field are all included in this Future City project.
His words, ‘’As we establish a solid foundation to expand the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Nigeria and Africa as a whole, we are aiming to raise tech founders, agro-technologists, and climate change activists.
“To this effect, we will be launching the inaugural edition of the Lagos Future City Week later this year. The Lagos Future City Week is set to be Africa’s foremost solution-focused event dedicated to promoting sustainability and the future of living”
As the maiden Wellness and Tech City in West Africa, LandWey hopes to turn this vision, enabled by tech, into an ecosystem to lead the development of sustainable and eco-friendly living environments.
Expanding into over 300 hectares and located in the cultural city of Epe, Isimi Lagos is positioned to be the ultimate tranquil natural escape enhanced by technology, providing an alternative eco-friendly lifestyle to the norm.
