Eko Atlantic City is a  5-million-square-metre city, is to be the first modern smart city in Africa to be built on reclaimed land from the Atlantic Ocean.  The new island which is still under development is anticipating 400,000 residents and a daily flow of 250,000 commuters. The development will also have a positive environmental impact as its main purpose is to stop the erosion of the Lagos coastline.
