A joint venture between the African Capital Alliance (ACA) and Elalan Group, Bluewater Lagos is a three-phase, mixed-use development in the Lekki Phase 1 area of Lagos. The first phase of the project is a 17-story residential tower, Sapphire, with ground floor ancillary spaces, a swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, a children’s playground, and a landscaped recreational park.
Residents of Sapphire’s 124 units will benefit from the resource-efficient design of the building, lowering their carbon footprint and saving on utility bills. Thermal performance glass, energy-efficient lighting and cooling systems will reduce the apartment’s energy use, while low-flow faucets and dual flush water closets will reduce the apartment’s water consumption.
ACA, a leading investment firm in Sub-Saharan Africa, is committed to the sustainable development of the region. The firm is partnering with the Elalan Group, a construction and civil engineering firm that is passionate about delivering innovative solutions to its clients. Together, they are determining the resource-efficient technologies that are best suited to their customers, for the benefit of the environment.
