The Churchgate group successfully negotiated the rights to the World Trade Center licence for real estate initiatives in the capital city of Nigeria; and now Abuja’s new landmark destination, that will be the commercial and residential jewel of Africa, has already commenced construction.
Churchgate has been a driving force of corporate activity in Nigeria for over 40 years; “the group has always reflected the spirit of the times” says Vinay Mahtani, Churchgate’s group Managing director. he adds; “and we are proud that the WTC Abuja will represent a true celebration of Nigeria’s economic progress”.
Churchgate has already developed and currently operates Churchgate Towers l & 2 on Victoria Island as well as the Churchgate Plaza in Abuja. The existing tenants that enjoy these luxury office spaces are amongst the Fortune 500 companies of the world. A Churchgate Tower 3 is in the planning stages for Victoria Island adjacent to its two sister towers.
Churchgate has also acquired a historical landsite on Victoria Island on which it intends on developing The Grand Hyatt Hotel and Residences. This 5 star hotel will be poised as one of the most important landmarks in Lagos. This former site of the Australian embassy is located adjacent to major roadways and the hotel will accommodate 400 upscale suites and 149 ultra luxurious residences; the residences will be grand in size and the proud owners will benefit from many of the hotel amenities and services that The Grand Hyatt will offer.
“The proposed building site for the World Trade Center on Constitution Avenue will be the premier address in Nigeria for retail, office space and residential” claims David Belinko, who is Churchgate’s Chief Marketing Officer. “The master plan provides for areas of public gathering, services and amenities unlike anything Nigeria has ever experienced and will rank amongst the most desirable locations to live and work on the continent”.
The site boasts of a sense of arrival with magnificent landscaping; the landscape architects on the project took full advantage of the topography to create a 100% secure environment.
The first WTC Residence by Churchgate will comprise of only 133 residential units which should sell out very quickly due to their unique nature, the present scarcity of upscale residences and of course their unbeatable location.
The World Trade Center in Abuja will integrate superbly with the city and the rest of the country. Both local and national train stations are currently under construction are adjacent to the WTC site.
With the proposed 40,000 Sq. Meters of shopping in the new Capital Mall, a branded hotel, twin tower office space for the corporations of the world, and a real-estate component, the World Trade Center in Abuja has something for everyone and will surely satisfy the commercial and lifestyle needs of its future occupants and clientele.
