AN ambitious real estate project, classified under the new neighborhoods, christened as Orange Island, to cover 150 hectares of land, located within Lekki in Lagos State, is underway.
Orange Island, which is alike to Eko Atlantic City project, is a newly berth planned city on the Lagos lagoon, estimated to N40 billion and to accommodate 25,000 population when it is eventually delivered.

Brokered under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) initiative, between the Lagos State Government and the developer, Orange Island Development Company (OIDC), the project involves the dredging of sand from the bed of the Lagos Lagoon, reclamation of a 150-hectare island, construction of an access land bridge and infrastructure to service the island. The Project will eventually be a fully serviced; community located 450 meters off the headland next to the existing Lekki Phase 1 foreshore reclamation project.
The services provided in the estate will include electricity, water and sewage system and The layout of the Island will be made up of four main schemes made up of residential, commercial services, and recreation/sports zones.
