Buildzone housing solutions have created an eco-friendly, smart and luxurious estate in Benin City, Edo state. Unlike other estates they’ve created in the past, It’s the first of its kind in the state. Èdin City, named in Bini language which means “Palm City” is Edo’s First Transformational and Conservative City. It sits on about 87,000sqm land size (over 100 plots) and consists of terraces, apartments, flats, luxury penthouses and other recreational structures that ensures communal and satisfactory living. Situated right in the heart of Benin City, the gated city is just 15 minutes away from the state’s airport.
After much work had been put into the preliminary set up of the City, it was finally time to open it up to the general public. The grand opening of Èdin City took place on the 9th of June, 2022. The Occasion was graced with the presence of notable personalities in Edo state such as the Former Commissioner for Arts, Culture, Tourism & Diaspora Affairs, Osaze Osemwegie Ero, Former Chairman of APC Edo state, Bank manager of Globus bank, Benin City, Mr George Onukwa, a renowned Priest in Edo State, Very Rev Fr. Alfred Agbonlahor, and many others. Also in attendance, was a host of online viewers who streamed the live event via social media platforms. The event was generally a laudable one with side attractions of good food, great music and super supportive attendees.
The Ceremony began with an opening prayer from the officiating Priest, Very Rev Fr. Alfred Agbonlahor. It went on with a run through speech on the features Èdin City has to offer from the Chief Marketing Officer, Buildzone Housing Solutions, Mr Obinna Nweke. Some of these features include; smart homes, 24hrs power supply, top notch security, recreational structures like a mini golf course, lawn tennis court, basketball courts, fitness centers, in-house swimming pools, cinemas, restaurants, lounges, shopping malls and of course the beautiful environment itself.
Followed immediately was a speech by the Director of Buildzone Housing Solutions, Mr Collins Osayi. According to Mr Osayi, Edin City is designed to accommodate every sphere of life and every interest. He also mentioned that even though they’ve seen through the completions of other estate initiatives before, this is the first time they’ll be venturing into something as big as this.
“I want to appreciate Collins Osayi for thinking of this because most times our people run away from Benin, they run away from home. They’d rather invest in London or in Lagos or elsewhere but he decided to come down with this mega project and it’s very commendable and I want to be part of it and I’m happy that he reached out to me. We’ll put in our full support, we’ll let our brothers and sisters in diaspora know that this is something they need to look forward to” these were the encouraging words from Former Commissioner for Arts, Culture, Tourism & Diaspora Affairs, Osaze Osemwegie Ero in an interview with Youtuber Adesuwa Lato. Others commended the thinking behind the project and some even called it a blessing to Edo state.
