Gold On The Lagos Lagoon
Our City -
Urban Design Objective
It is common in Nigeria for individual properties in upscale neighbourhoods in Nigeria to have power generators either as main or backup arrangement for power supply. This is strictly prohibited on Gracefield Island.
Safety and Security
We are very deliberate about our plan for security on Gracefield Island. Right from concept stage and now to construction stage, we have put the security and safety of our residents, commuters and visitors at the heart of our planning and implementation. This means that Gracefield Island is secured by design. Indeed, we subscribed to a security programme of London Metropolitan Police by similar name- Secure By Design (SBD).
The island nature of Gracefield at 2.5 kilometres from the shoreline means it provides unique opportunity to be secured and a lower measure of threat. We have planned effective elimination of marine threat and counter measures against state or neighbourhood unrest.
These include visible actions such as armed Marine Police who conduct both maritime surveillance and island based security, Island wardens who patrol by vehicles, motorbike, bicycle and on foot, CCTV, etc., and other non-visible measures including high level intel to ensure we remain proactive.
Landscape and Greening Programme
Right in the centre of the island is a park, approximately 1 kilometre long. The park is accessible to all residents and even occupiers of the office buildings that will make their base on Gracefield Island. The park is designed to be a haven of serenity, while the section nearest to the proposed library will be an area of activities for children, with pop-up shops and outdoor playground.
There is a section that is essentially an arboretum, providing a haven for plant scientists and experts. We have already planted a wide range of fruit bearing trees in our upcoming orchard within the Central Park, these include coconut, mango, apple, guava, cocoa, pawpaw, etc., and a distinct section for medicinal plants.
