New urban lifestyle in premier residential destination  

Lagos
In the exclusive Marina District, within the bowels of Eko Atlantic City, a new urban lifestyle is emerging to give luxury and modern living a new definition, creating what is clearly a premier residential destination.
Known as Azuri Peninsula, this development which is promoted by Eko Development Nigeria Limited- a real estate development  company dedicated to creating luxury residences of the highest specification- is a monumental project sitting on 127,507 square metres of land with phased delivery targets.
The first phase of the project with a 36-month construction/completion plan has 13,000 square metres gross buildable area (GBA) and 130 square metres built up area where 120 luxury apartments, 12 super-luxury simplexes, two superb villas and seven townhouse apartments are nestled.
“Azuri Peninsula offers a unique and luxury urban lifestyle by the delightful marina-front of the Marina District in the vibrant new Eko Atlantic City”, an official of Eko Development explains.  The location of the Peninsula in the Marina District, considered the most exclusive in Eko Atlantic City, explains the developer’s choice of a brand name that resonates uncommon luxury and lifestyle where Azuri combines the African word ‘Zuri’ meaning, beautiful, with Azure which suggests a radiant sea.
The Peninsula is being delivered as two and four bedroom luxury apartments, six bedroom simplexes and seven bedroom villas arranged across marina townhouse apartments and three outstanding residential towers known as ‘Zuna’ (meaning abundance), ‘Orun’ (meaning heaven) and ‘Oban’ (meaning king), each reaching up to 26 floors.
“This development is taking into consideration lifestyle and ambience. The lifestyle is created by its location. The location is between the Atlantic Ocean and the Lagos channel; we are also creating a marina and we have three water bodies that create a lifestyle and an ambience”, the offical reveals.
For the ultimate comfort and convenience of residents, there will be a five star marina and yacht club with an attractive promenade, high-end shops, cafes and a wealth of amenities.
Eko Atlantic, a city frequently called ‘Africa’s Dubai’, is a layout of 10 districts of which the Marina is one and the Business District is another. Though Azuri is planned as a mix-use development that will be 92 percent residential and 8 percent retail, its closeness to the Business District complements its conception as a live, work and play destination.
In line with the highest standards of contemporary living, all apartments in the Peninsula will be fully-fitted with state-of-the-art kitchens and luxury bathrooms, air conditioning and broadband terraces and balconies. The ‘Orun’ and ‘Oban’ Towers, will offer the ultimate in luxury living and these  include a private gym and swimming pool as well as stunning, panoramic views of the environment.
Azuri promises residents access to 24-hour concierge service, a gym, two squash courts, and a café. These will come in addition to a relaxing sauna, games, screening rooms and a children’s playroom. Outside, residents will have access to a private outdoor swimming pool, children’s playground, garden-piazzas and valet parking.
In the Marina District itself, there will be high-end retail outlets, international standard restaurants and an abundant range of amenities, all of which will establish Azuri as a premier residential destination.
Eko Atlantic’s high-standard infrastructure, which includes managed and maintained utilities, will guarantee an exceptionally comfortable lifestyle. A well-planned road system, up-to-date ferry service and helicopter service linking the city to Lagos, will ensure that the city is the best-connected in West Africa.
