Eko Atlantic City is a new urban settlement close to the commercial capital city of Nigeria, Lagos. The planning process started in 2003 and the project includes residential, commercial, financial and touristic accommodations in a location serviced by high tech infrastructure. The new city targets 250,000 residents and 150,000 commuters.
The Master plan Eko Atlantic sets guidelines for future development, the main issues are transport and infrastructure, sea-defense, land use, regulations for development, water management and technical services. This project demanded a very fast and integrated process. Surveys, technical studies, marketing and designing the new city on several scales had to be executed simultaneously.
However Eko Atlantic City is also subject of discussion and it saw the opposition of local residents. The dispute concerns the risk of coastal erosion and ocean surges caused by the ongoing construction. Consequences such as ocean water surging through living areas, flooding access roads and taking down electricity poles threaten residents relocation.
