The nation’s first three-tower structure is being built by The City of David, a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
The high-profile facility, known as Trinity Towers, is located opposite the church auditorium in Oniru Estate, Victoria Island, Lagos. Each tower has 13 floors.
It will be an integrated family centre in a neighborhood steeped in history, yet at the forefront of the future.
City of David, which is led by Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, holds strongly to the philosophy of Church Social Responsibility (CSR) in addition to having a spiritual impact.
Consequently, the church is deeply involved in community and social development, making the Trinity Towers an extension of City of David’s contributions in various spheres of influence.
These include projects and programmes such as the Healing Stripes Hospital, which provides highly subsidised healthcare services, including dialysis.
The Arise Women mobile clinic takes free quality healthcare delivery to the doorsteps of the medically deprived citizens in the state. Another programme involves feeding up to 60,000 people weekly.
Infrastructure projects are not left out as the church has installed street lights in Navy Town and Mushin which have helped to reduce crime rates in those communities.
In the field of education, the church has established schools and provides free education and feeding in some of them. Furthermore, in partnership with sister churches, the church has equipped 125 out of a planned 500 public primary school libraries in Lagos State.
To enhance its already broad impact in society, the church said it would redirect a good proportion of the inflows from the Trinity Towers to both existing and new projects.
The Trinity Towers is a unique structure with three towers linked together having apartments, office space, food courts, underground and multi-storey car parks, function rooms and recreational facilities.
Design of the structure is deliberate to achieve the objective of raising consistent, long-term funding for social intervention programmes as most of the floor spaces will be leased out.
According to Yemi Stephens, Partner, Estate Links, whose company serves as leasing agent piling work on the project was completed last year by Foundation Construction, while the main contract for the construction has been signed with ITB Nigeria Limited.
Construction is expected to be completed in the next 30 months.
He said, “The expectation is that when this property will be coming to the market, the economy should be on its way back to recovery.
We believe that in the next 30 months the economy will be different from what it is today. He added that, “this project may be the only one in its class that will be coming out to the market at a time when demand should have picked up.”
Trinity Towers is iconic, given its structural sophistication and best in class facilities. The edifice which will be sitting on 10,000 square metres, combines three towers into structural beauty and functionality that offer the best of environments for business and leisure. The Towers boast an interior that will position it as prime residential and commercial property.
Its 5,000-seater concert hall will have automated and integrated lighting, sound and video system and state-of-the-art audio visual facilities suitable for live broadcast. These will all provide optimum acoustic delivery.
Space, light and aesthetics make it a functional work of art, and its environmental credentials are impeccably combined to maximise the use of natural light and ventilation. High efficiency glazing will reduce heat loss and reflect ultra-violet rays for lower energy consumption.
Besides parking spaces for 670 cars in the multi-storey car park, Trinity Towers also has green spaces for tenants surrounding the building as well as connecting walkways between the towers to provide access and minimize disruption.
There are also indoor amusements for the kids, retail facility and cinema experience for all the family from the two cinema halls, recreational theme park and shopping centre.
“The jewel on top of the crown is the rooftop swimming pool flanking a helipad,” said the project architect, explaining that the pool is positioned to offer stunning views of the island and environs while getting the best of the tropical sunlight.
The Trinity Towers resonates with the slogan of the City of David, “where the love of God reigns, where dreams come true, where legends are born and tomorrow’s history is experienced today.”
