How The Wings inspires future of Nigeria’s real estate market
Corporate elites scouting for prestigious office locations in Lagos face the challenge of making the best decision on what to settle for due to an array of exciting choices.
3Invest Limited, a real estate investment company, noted that this keen competition has created room for developers to be unique by offering a richer and more profitable office space for their clients and occupiers.
In its ten-point appraisal of The Wings Tower, a grade ‘A’ office complex located at the Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue, Victoria Island, Lagos, the real estate firm argued that “with an increasing supply of office space into the Nigerian office market, it has become imperative for developers to differentiate their products by offering a richer and more profitable experience to their occupiers and clients.”
The Wings Towers comprises 27, 000 m2 of ultramodern, quality office space across 12 floors, which overlook the Five Cowrie Creek.
Sharing the benefits of The Wings, the Chief Executive of 3Invest Limited, Ms. Ruth Obih, said, “This competitive advantage makes it easier for decision makers in top organisations to select these buildings in meeting their real estate needs.”
According to the firm, what differentiates the property from other grade ‘A’ office spaces in Nigeria’s economic nerve centre are location, a key factor for real estate investments.
The Wing’s superb location in the north-eastern corner of Victoria Island, on Ozumba Mbadiwe, puts its occupiers literally minutes away from the former commercial centre of Lagos Island, Eko Bridge for Mainland access, Awolowo Road, Osborne Road and Third Mainland Bridge all via the vital Ring Road – providing excellent connectivity between the islands and main routes to the mainland.
The Wings is also one of the very few prime offices with waterway access, via its private jetty on the Five Cowrie Creek. The feature offers its occupiers much greater flexibility in commuting. It also provides its occupiers with the option to avoid travelling by road by using boat to their desired location. Tenants can be in meetings or at home in a fraction of the time. Who says Lagos traffic cannot be conquered?
The building has a high-efficiency ratio, meaning that every inch of space being let by the tenants could be used in their fit–out. Dead space has been eliminated, thereby maximising the tenants’ value for money.
The Wings proudly offer its tenants a world-class restaurant venue, with indoor and outdoor dining space. Tenants and visitors can enjoy their lunch break or engage in after-work networking on the restaurant’s pristinely landscaped deck, with gratifying views of the Five Cowrie Creek.
With a 700-bay car parking facility, The Wings also offers one of the largest office parking spaces in Nigeria, and the highest leasable space to parking ratio, with three cars per 100m2 – housed in underground and podium parkades.
As concerns grow over the security challenges in the country, the building boasts of cutting-edge security systems to ensure the highest level of safety for its occupiers and their property at all times.
These measures include an on-site security team, access control to office floors, turnstile access control in each tower security lobby, bulletproof ground floor glazing, automated security bollards and Network Video Recording system, which monitors key areas of the building and others.
The building’s intelligent building management system will optimise energy and resource consumption and ensure a fully coordinated environment at all times. The energy efficient external cladding is designed to limit direct solar gain by using high-performance glazing with a ceramic frit solution aimed at controlling glare.
It will be managed by one of the finest international facilities and property management companies, ensuring the highest service standards and tenant satisfaction at all times.
Besides being a centre of thriving commerce, The Wings complex will also be a space that fosters international and indigenous art and culture.
Studies have shown that a workplace environment, enriched with art and other visual boards can help to elevate the productivity, mood and wellbeing of its occupiers.
