Taking flight in the zone

The Lagos State Government has restated its commitment to building the Lekki International Airport which will be situated in the Lekki Free Zone.

The airport is expected to process a total of five million passengers per year and will be a mix of a cargo and passenger traffic.

It will be a key value driver within the free zone axis and will support its burgeoning economy, complementing the soon to be commissioned Lekki deep sea port.

Talent City gets christened

 

In February, we announced that Talent City, a tech ecosystem that will be home to 1,000 residents and 2,500 remote workers, is setting up in Alaro City.

We are delighted to update you that plans are moving quickly. In an event held recently to engage with its growing waiting list of citizens, Talent City revealed the name of its first charter city – ITANA.

ITANA features a central co-working campus along with a variety of housing options designed for a flexible remote-friendly lifestyle and the future of tech.

History in the making

Construction of the main boulevard is progressing according to schedule and is currently at 20% completion. Constructed by Craneburg, a leading infrastructure, and engineering firm, with a stellar record of building major civil construction works across Nigeria, the boulevard has eight lanes with storm water drainages, underground service ducts, landscaped sidewalks, medians and underground sewers.

The project will be one of Africa’s largest, privately owned roads.

A laboratory for innovation

Alaro City has continued to demonstrate its commitment to building an emerging ecosystem where technology can thrive.

In furtherance of this commitment, our Managing Director, Yomi Ademola spoke at an event organized by the SAIL innovation lab established by Senator Mukhail Adetokubo Abiru, a community center for young people in Lagos East Senatorial District, within which Alaro City falls.

The innovation lab is aimed at creating employment opportunities for grass-root innovations and building partnerships and networks that will drive economic prosperity and solve social and business challenges in the district.

Speaking at the event, Yomi stressed the need for public-private partnerships aimed at bridging the gaps in the emerging technology ecosystem and providing a safe environment and regulatory frameworks for innovation and the broader technology landscape to thrive.

Alaro City is well equipped for the future of business in Nigeria and Africa as a hub to cater to every need of a growing tech ecosystem.

The Main One

Main One, West Africa’s leading connectivity and data center solutions provider, is expanding its fiber-optic network infrastructure to the Lekki Free Zone axis.

The high-speed fiber network will provide an efficient technological backbone for the free zone and its drive towards delivering ease for businesses transacting in and around Alaro City.

Main One is a key client of the Rendeavour Group, the master developer of Alaro City, in partnership with the Lagos State Government. Main One’s first data centre in Ghana is located at Appolonia City, Alaro City’s sister project.

Committed to community

In line with our CSR pillars of health, conservation and community, we have continued to strengthen our partnership with the Lagos State Office of Civic Engagement on the Mother, Infant and Child Development (MICHD) initiative.

In a sensitization programme held on 26 April 2022 at the Epe Local Government Secretariat, we further demonstrated our commitment by providing nutritional packs and other materials required by the mothers over the course of their pregnancies.

Speaking at the event, the Special Adviser, Office of Civic Engagement, Princess Aderemi Adebowale stated that the MICHD programme provides weekly nutritional food packs and supplements to indigent pregnant women across the 20 Local Government Areas and 37 Local Council Development Areas of the state.

Alaro City has been a partner of the programme since inception.
