Developers of the World Trade Centre (WTC), Abuja, a high-profile mixed-use building featuring high-end offices, retail space, and residential properties, have announced the first phase’s completion despite the worldwide economic struggle. Earlier construction on the WTC Abuja, developed by the Churchgate Group, commenced in 2010 covering more than 6,000 hectares. Upon completion, the building is designed to comprise eight buildings, seven of which will be quite tall. This consists of a hotel, convention center, shopping mall, and office buildings.
According to a recent statement made by Mr. Karim Adelaja, General Manager, Sales & Marketing, WTC, Abuja, the development is powered by some of the world’s best technologies, and the first phase, which includes a grade-A commercial tower, luxury residential tower, and clubhouse, and was recently completed. At 110 meters, the WTC Residential Tower is the city’s highest residential structure. One hundred and twenty high-end apartments, with everything from one to six bedrooms, are spread out throughout the tower’s 24 stories. The apartments have earned a reputation as the epitome of luxury accommodation, designed with comfort in mind and befitting a king or queen.
Each story of offices is constructed with cutting-edge tools.
At over 120 meters in height, the office building is a sight to see. This building is 22 stories tall and has 33,000 square meters of luxurious office space. Each story of offices was planned and constructed with cutting-edge tools in mind. The tower’s double-glazed facade allows for unrivaled, 360-degree views of the whole city, making it one of the best office buildings in Abuja. Adelaja who spoke at the WTC Abuja Maiden Webinar Series, said the commercial tower is constructed with flexibility to cater for both small and big enterprises that demand a prime location and top-notch services in order to conduct their operations successfully.
Built on the latest technologies, the WTC Abuja has an integrated building management and automation system. It also boasts of a state of the art security infrastructure already in place and even Its own dedicated police station and fire department. Adelaja explained that the clubhouse was built for recreational, cultural and educational activities for the occupants of the WTC Abuja residents. It consists of a fitness club, executive lounge, tennis courts, squash courts, an infinity swimming pool, a bar, spa, crèche, and even a jogging track.
Energy utilization is needed for almost every facet of economic growth.
The Clubhouse’s aim is to enhance the lives of its users by fostering social cohesion, fostering physical health, decreasing stress, and raising levels of contentment. Speaking on the topic of “Nigeria’s Trade Competitiveness; Imperatives for Development,” Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo emphasized the importance of energy utilization for almost every facet of economic growth. He claimed that energy use was directly linked to indicators of well-being and human lifespan such as health, nutrition, infrastructure, and education.
He claims that Nigeria’s poor electricity infrastructure has long had a negative impact on the country’s business climate. In order to address these issues, the government of Nigeria has proposed the Nigeria Energy Transition Plan, which aims to achieve net-zero emissions by 2060 and SDG7 by 2030. Adebayo reaffirmed the government’s commitment to establishing the infrastructure necessary to give the economy the productive and competitive edge it requires to enhance the basket of our marketable goods and improve the quality of life for all citizens.
Trade competitiveness requires gov’t and private sector cooperation.
Mr. Vinay Mahtani, the Group Managing Director of the Churchgate group, remarked that the webinar plays an important part in shaping the future of the national economy by providing a forum for the development and implementation of strategies that will make the country more economically competitive and sustainable. Mahtani said that the government and private sector must work together to improve Nigeria’s trade competitiveness because of the country’s poor position on the global competitiveness index.
