CODEWIT gathered that the estate, when completed, would also have 50,000 lock-up shops for commercial purpose and also help to uplift the standard of living of those who would eventually purchase the units.
The company, in a statement, hinted that about 25,000 youths within Sango, Idiroko, Ilaro and Agbara, would be trained in June and July in the construction of inter-lock brick production and assembling for the proposed estate as a way of generating employment for the youths.
It said the company had also concluded a $1billion offshore finance to be warehoused by Union Bank Plc, Balogun branch where contractors assemblers, beneficiaries and off-takers of the units are expected to have accounts as mandatory.
The estate would be accessible through an 8-lane road and a train rail to move all bulk goods from Ilaro in Yewa Local Government via Sokoto Road to Agbara-Badagry Expressway thus opening it to Lagos State.
