Foreign firms partner to build Abuja Centenary City

10 December 2014

As an emerging city, Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria, continues to be a massive construction site that parades the best in architecture and the most sophisticated in engineering construction and building technology.

The city has and continues to welcome renowned local and international real estate investors and developers and, this time, the Abu Dhabi-based Eagle Hills is in town and has engaged the German construction giant, Julius Berger, as a construction partner to build the Abuja Centenary City.

Abuja Centenary City, envisaged as a spectacular city hub, is a fitting tribute to Nigeria on its 100th year of formation sitting on 1,300-hectare master-planned community as the largest of its kind in Africa. It has three iconic features—the Africa Tower, scaling high at 308 metres, The Mall of Nigeria and a 30-hectare Nigeria Park.

Africa Tower will be the tallest building in the continent while the mall will be its largest retail and entertainment destination.

Both Julius Berger and Eagle Hills have incredible credentials in the construction industry and their involvement in the development of the Abuja Centenary City gives fillip to its description as the city of the future envisaged as “a city within the city that will add much value to Nigerian economy”.
