Popular musician Davido had a very rich engineer uncle who developed and designed Banana Island.
The original Banana Island construction project entitled Lagoon City was the brainchild of the Late Chief Adebayo Adeleke, a University of London trained Civil Engineer (MICE), and CEO of City Property Development Ltd.
Here the story goes:-
Adeleke had originally commissioned a new urban development in Maroko, Victoria Island , but that project had been acquired by the Lagos State government. Following a lengthy 10 year court case, Lagos State government offered other parcels of land as consideration for the Maroko development.
Adeleke then engaged the Westminster Dredging Company to dredge the foreshore, and create six interlinked and symmetrical islands.
He wanted to create a development that would “Make Nigeria Proud”, and engaged Minoru Yamasaki the architect of Manhattan’s Twin Towers, to design replica twin towers as the flagship iconic buildings on the main island.
To complete the Lagoon City concept, Adeleke planned an aesthetic design including a city airport, which was a vision conceived long before the London Docklands Development,
London City Airport , Dubai’s Palm Islands or Hong Kong’s Chek Lap Kok Airport .
Soon thereafter, the project was acquired again with no consideration being paid to City Property Development Limited. The acquisition is currently being challenged in various courts, and there are Caveat Emptor warnings in place to warn prospective buyers that their investment could be at risk in future. There is also litigation pending in the UK and European courts regarding this matter.
The subsequent developers were principally interested in maximising the yield of the land. Consequently, the land was filled in to create a banana shaped island, which is now a residential scheme rather than the commercial development originally envisaged.
Banana Island, is an area of Ikoyi , Lagos ,
Nigeria , 8.6 kilometres east of Tafawa Balewa Square. Part of the Lagos Local Government Area of Eti-Osa in Central Lagos, it is known for its wealthy, multi-cultural community and has some of the most expensive real estate in Nigeria. [1] Banana Island has one of the highest density of millionaires within its boundaries.
