Symphony Garden City (SGC) is a proposed 21st century- waterfront city planned to meet the residential accommodation needs of high and luxury buyers, middle income buyers and company property buyers.
The city would deliver state-of-the-art infrastructure that will be second to none on the Lagos Mainland.
- The project is located on the foreshore of Ifako-Lagos, along Oworonshoki-Ogudu axis of the Third Mainland Bridge.
- The prescribed land-use of the area is residential and the acquired landed property is 155,440 square meters elevated at approximately 2 meters above mean high water mark.
- The property is bordered by the Third Mainland dual carriage road to the South West and the lagoon to the South East
- The site is centrally located at the heart of Lagos. It provides easy access to the island, the mainland, as well as, Lagos inland waterways.
- Site-and-Services model of developmental approach is adopted by SGC.
- Thefundamental idea is to market plots with essential infrastructure at market prices.
- To enhance the market value of the property and make SGC conform to the target plan of the proponent:
- The residential clusters are zoned and varieties of architectural designs proffered to moderate the types of structures anticipated for the city.
STORM WATER DRAINAGE MANAGEMENT DESIGN
- The importance of effective drainage planning for infrastructure development in a city like Lagos cannot be over emphasized especially when the project site is in a low lying environment. This is why we have carefully considered the cogent parameters that influence considerations for adequate drainage-ability of a project situated in a unique environment such as the NPMB site in Ogudu.
- Three major boundary conditions govern effective drainage of this project site.
- An existing system one channel whose downstream alignment adjoins the site.
- The Lagos lagoon found east of the site.
- Contributing drainage catchments within and outside the site.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (EIA) REPORT
- The rapid development of Lagos State into a mega city makes it imperative for the government to encourage private developers to embark on development within the state, to cope with the associated population increase caused by the high rate of immigration into the state.
- In keeping with the cardinal objective of the government to provide qualitative and quantitative accommodation for the state’s teeming population, we embarked on the development of Infrastructural facilities for the proposed Symphony Garden City project in Lagos.
- This Environmental Impact Assessment report is in fulfillment of the regulatory requirements for any development project in the state.
- This EIA report was carried out after well-planned site visits, field survey and samples collection, laboratory analyses, and secondary data acquisition from existing reports and publications, as well as derivation of spatially referenced data using GIS and remote sensing technologies.
- The report covers the assessment of planned project activities, the environment around the project area, and the associated and potential impacts of the proposed project as well as reasonable mitigation options for the negative impacts.
- The justification for the development is hinged basically on contribution towards solving the housing problem in Lagos State as well as improving the style and standard of living for the medium to low class of the Lagos population around Lekki axis of the state.
- Environmental impacts of the planned Infrastructure development for the proposed Symphony Garden City project have been examined through a number of processes.
- The report has identified the impacts of the developmental process, mainly on the costal, terrestrial and marine environment. Impacts on the coastal environment will be felt through the significant changes in the soil characteristic and exposure to erosion forces due to construction activities and alteration of the lagoon in case of discharge of untreated wastewater from the infrastructure operations change.
- Impacts on the terrestrial environment will be felt as a result of vegetation clearing, wildlife loss and alteration of natural topography of the project area due to sand- filling activities and infrastructural development.
- This study revealed that the project might not have any drastic changes in the oceanographic parameters in the Lagos lagoon. The potential adverse effects from oceanographic parameters can be ameliorated from the planned project by ensuring that adequate precautions and mitigation options are put in place.
- Ensuring that height of the proposed land reclamation activities that will sustain the various infrastructural development dredged should not be less than 1.5m above mean sea level in order to have strong base for the various infrastructures that will be constructed for the proposed Symphony Garden City project;
- Proper and well-engineered revetments should be constructed to prevent erosion and concomitant subsidence;
- Effective monitoring programme should be put in place during and after the construction of the infrastructural facilities;
- Adequate drainage channels with good drainage heads should be constructed with due consideration for various channels within the project area especially the System One channel and the Lagos lagoon;
- Adequate provisions should be made in the developmental/construction programme to allow recommended changes that will emerge during monitoring.
In addition to the identified mitigation measures, it is expected that during the construction stage of the reclamation activities, all precautionary measures applicable to construction works like dust suppression measures, noise pollution control, drainage and water-course protection, control of dispersion of filling materials and wheel washing facilities will be implemented before and during the construction.
