A Green City: A natural buffer that envelopes the entire
city and encircles the central neighbourhood that protect
and nurtures the public facilities.
The city will aim at reducing waste to zero.
Domestic waste will be used to create nutrientrich-soil, fertiliser and incinerated as an additional
power source. Other waste such as plastic and
metals, will be recycled.
A Central park: That will provide clarity and iconic
power to the city as a whole but most powerfully to
the city centre.
Super-block system that is modular and organic
yielding a resulting grid of arteries, streets and
pathways with an efficient traffic system where
pedestrians, bicycles, cars, trams and monorail
can co-exist in a friendly manner.
Independent Power source: with a gas-fired 500MW
power plant connected directly to a gas terminal,
constant power supply to the city can be taken for

New Abuja Gate: A magnificent and well-inspiring
architectural masterpiece that will eloquently
introduce the centenary city and welcome visitors

The main landmark will be the tallest building in
Africa(more than 465 meters high).The "tallest
building in Africa "will be a mixed use high-rise that
will contain a variety of spaces to accommodate
international banks and firm representation office
business hotels, high-end restaurants, gymnasium
sand spa, executive suites ,etc.This tower will have a
unique shape that resembles modern interpretations
of African art and is designed to meet the highest
environmental requirements. The tower will be
located near the centre of the site, close to the lake,
in the Central Park.
Abuja Centenary City is located on the Abuja-Airport
A new express railway will link the Airport, Abuja
Centenary City and Abuja.
The main natural features of the site are the rocks and
the river.
The river will become a lake. The rocks will be the
natural backdrop of the new city.
The basic strategy in the design is the concentration of
corporate and commercial buildings and dispersion of living
and service are as around the centre. A large number of
mixed-use mid-rises and high-rises in the central core of the
new city.
Concentration of complementing buildings ensures an
efficient infrastructure network and allows larger expanses of
green areas.
Metropolitan level facilities, such as the Health Centre,
Communication Hub and University Campus are located close
to the regional highways.
Parametrical lower densities give space for a “green belt "that
will act as a buffer zone for the New city.
The design of the new city will be consistent with a
modern business district with a clear urban structure and
well defined neighborhoods and areas. The city will
provide a secure and high quality environment due to a
careful and coherent sustainable design.
The space between the corporate and commercial centre
and residential areas will be land scalped and balanced
harmonically with nature, particularly around the lake. As
the central backbone will run from the south rock to the
northrock,a dramatic contrast of the buildings and the
central park against the natural back drop of rock out
cropping will give the place a unique and natural feel.
The highest density and the highest buildings
are located along the Central Park. Therefore,
the investment value and the cost of land will
be higher in that area. Gradually, as you fan
out, the density will be reduced and will give
way to ecological reserve areas and a green
