Eko Atlantic, officially Nigeria International Commerce city, also known as Eko Atlantic City, or the initials E.A.C. and E.A., is a planned city of Lagos State, Nigeria, being constructed on land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean.
Eko Atlantic is an emerging city unlike any other. Rising on land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean, it is a symbol of Nigeria’s proud and ambitious spirit: a new global landmark setting a new standard.
Eko Atlantic, adjacent to Victoria Island in Lagos, will eventually cover 10 million square metres and is already visible from space. The groundwork has restored coastline eroded by the sea and is providing vital real estate for people to live and work in Lagos, the world’s fastest-growing megacity with a population soaring towards 25 million. However, coastal conservation and city expansion are just the beginning.
Eko Atlantic’s state-of-the-art infrastructure and world-class design are also paving the way for Nigeria to become a top 20 global economic power within the next decade. The country has already overtaken South Africa as the continent’s largest economy and Eko Atlantic will establish itself as the new financial headquarters.
Entirely privately funded, this 21st-century metropolis is creating a surge in local prosperity and will be a place where global business gets done. Top-tier companies, investors and property seekers from around the world are being attracted to stunning new developments across Eko Atlantic’s ten distinct districts. The great vision for this new city is fast becoming a reality.
MAKING EKO ATLANTIC EVEN SMARTER
While the physical reality of Eko Atlantic City continues apace, developers have been hard at work on its impressive virtual reality. The Eko Atlantic mobile app is ready for launch. Available for all smartphones and tablets, you can download it for free by visiting the iPhone App Store or Android Market, or simply scanning the QR code on this page.
AUGMENTED REALITY (AR)
Without doubt, the smartest feature of this app is Augmented Reality (AR) – a cutting-edge technology that displays a digitally enhanced view of objects or locations. Using the camera and sensors in a smartphone or tablet, AR adds layers of digital information – videos, photos, sounds, graphics or GPS data – directly on top of items in the real world.
EKO ATLANTIC MOBILE APPLICATION
The Eko Atlantic app is our latest outreach to supporters who prefer to use mobile devices. In addition to an easy-to-use and regularly updated project presentation, the app features a gyroscopeenhanced virtual tour enabling users to navigate through the Eko Atlantic City construction site just by moving their mobile device around, an overview of the infrastructure networks progress and an AR feature
