Property developers are, increasingly, becoming creative and innovative in their products offering and these are the ‘art’ that has gone into the development of Quantum Brick Estate, making it the next destination for investors and home buyers in the new year.
Nestled in the serene Igbogbo town in Ikorodu, Lagos, Quantum Brick being developed by Habbey Homes Property Development Company is, arguably, Nigeria’s first 100 percent hybrid-renewable energy off-grid green estate built with bricks.
This means the new estate boasts prospective residents’ close touch with nature, clean and low cost energy and security offered by the brick walls. The estate being 100 percent green means too that residents won’t have to rely on PHCN or generator. It assures of 38kwh/day of energy straight from Mother Nature, and a bio-digester waste disposal system.
In terms of cost, the estate promises to bring affordability to luxury with tastefully finished home design that is as functional as it is appealing in each of its 2 and 3-bedroom all en-suite terrace apartments.
The developers say their interlock bricks will be 10 times stronger than cement blocks. The natural insulation that a brick home provides saves cost on energy for cooling and this, they explain, is in addition to the fact that brick is fire-proof and bullet-resistant, hence guaranteeing safety.
According to them, each apartment in the estate is equipped with energy-saving appliances that will further save on the 38kwh/day green energy that subscribers will get, describing this as value-added offers that comes with subscribing to the estate.
“Our 100 percent green estate is meant to safeguard nature, the atmosphere and society’s health. By this, we have reduced drastically our carbon footprint in the most reasonable way possible,” Abiodun Akinyemi, Habbey Homes’ CEO, explained in Lagos.
“The hybrid estate aims to explore a combination of nature’s gifts to mankind, to generate electricity that powers homes and all the amenities that come with the estate,” Akinyemi explained further.
Waste disposal management system in the estate also recommends it to discerning home buyers as it is eco-friendly. This, according to the developers, has been achieved using a bio-digester system that converts human and kitchen wastes into cooking gas and effluent or water. The cooking gas is then re-directed into the homes to supplement residents cooking needs.
The estate is positioned to deliver energy-efficient homes that will improve the quality of lives of residents which, the developers said, is also aimed to explore all that nature has to offer to improve the quality of lives of residents.
“This is fully driven by unique eco-friendly, sustainable and waste management methodologies put into development of the project,” Akiyemi assured.
“We are committed to delivering homes that promote and sustain high quality of life and living, yet affordable. We aim to project a living environment that preserves nature, manages wastes and enhances sustainability in the most energy-efficient and eco-friendly manner’, he added.
The estate, which is barely 5-minute drive to Ebute Jetty, beside NPA Lighter Terminal, and 1-minute drive to the Ebute-Igbogbo dual carriage road, when fully developed, will also boast of a Ball Court, swimming pool and playground. There are also Gym, Grocery store, centralized water treatment reservoir and 1 HP air conditioner in the living area and in each room.
Other facilities include, refrigerator and microwave oven, smart electricity meter to monitor energy generation and consumption. Solar hot water tank, washing machine, gas cooker with oven, boiling kettle, pressing iron, cooking gas leak alarm sensor device and 24/7 security guard, CCTV and door camera are some of the exciting offers that await the estate subscribers.
“The dream of a home independent of public power sources takes flight with Quantum Brick Estate; and that includes the benefits of a strong, bullet resistant and insulating brick home: our 2 & 3 bedroom all en-suite terrace apartments selling off-plan for N24 million and N28 million respectively,” the CEO said.
