1st Newsletter – October 2014

Orange Island Development Company Limited is proud to announce the commencement of dredging works at its site. On August 2014 Van Oord Nigeria Limited mobilised the first pontoon to the site and commenced full mobilisation of equipment for dredging and reclamation works. The dredger finally arrived at the Orange Island site in early September and dredging started in earnest, a monumental milestone in the commencement of dredging works on the island.

The Revised Master Plan

We continue to revise the master plan as the technical investigation and design process progress. The latest zonal plan (still in progress) is presented below.

Featured Orange Island District

The Marina

The focal point of the development is marina precinct. This node will be approached along a boulevard of mixed-use developments, terminating in a ‘Village Square’. Surrounding the village square shops, restaurants, a promenade to the marina are proposed. The marina itself will be navigable and will have boat moorings to be let on annual leases.
A ferry terminal will be accommodated nearby to allow local residents to commute and ease vehicular congestion.

Did You Know?

The Lagos Lagoon is more than 50km long and 3 to 13km wide. It is separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a long sand spit 2 to 5 km wide, which has swampy margins on the lagoon side. Its surface area is approximately 6,354.7km².[1] The lagoon is fairly shallow and is not plied by ocean-going ships, but by smaller barges and boats. The lagoon receives the discharge of the Ogun River and the Osun River. It empties into the Atlantic via Lagos Harbour, a main channel through the heart of the Lagos, 0.5 km to 1 km wide and 10 km long.
