Plans are afoot by the Nigeria Police Cooperatives Multipurpose Society Ltd (POLCOOP), Mall D’Oasis Shopping Centre Limited and a consortium of partners to boost the nation’s hospitality and real estate sector.

The project, known as Oasis centre, is coming at a time when the nation’s real estate is facing difficulties as a result of economic downturns.

Situated along Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, in Ikeja on the land of 35,000 square metres, the developers said they are poised to leave a signature of excellence, satisfaction and quality, across its various real estate developments.

According to the developers, the first phase of the project, which is the retail mall, would be opened to the public by December 2022.

Mall D’Oasis Shopping Centre Limited is a commercial development company and owns the trade name Oasis, the firm said it’s excited to introduce its flagship development, The Oasis Centre, Ikeja.

The developers described the Oasis Centre, Ikeja as a “unique” mixed-use development and the first mixed-use space in Nigeria that combines three distinct development types (retail, business and hospitality) in one building.

Lead Consultant, Awoyokun Consulting, Nnennaya Awoyokun and Director in BleFamingo, Adelola Chu-Osakwe, conducted newsmen on the tour of the project recently.

According to Awoyokun, a variety of 42 distinct retail brands would operate from its ground and first floor, while a flexible MICE component would provide serviced meeting rooms, boardrooms and meeting spaces.

She stated further that a five-star hospitality component across four floors would offer leisure and accommodation for 200 rooms.

According to her, whether for business or pleasure, the Oasis Centre Ikeja is the perfect destination.

She stressed that each component has been designed to complement the other, to give an enriched hospitality experience.

“It’s simply an ecosystem that works, is safe, functional and elegantly styled for business, retail and leisure purposes.

“Strategically located in the heart of Lagos, the five minutes drive to Lagos’ international and local airports is simply one of the astounding features of this innovative lifestyle development,” Awoyokun said.

Other features of the Oasis Centre include executive lounges, gymnasium, spa, wellness suite, infinity pool, pool bar, piano bar, all-day dining, and a rooftop bar with an open terrace view, overseeing the skyline of Ikeja.

Describing the Oasis Centre as a “city within the city of Lagos”, Awoyokun and Chu-Osakwe said the firm is prepared to enhance the quality of the hospitality industry with the introduction of Wyndham Hotel brand.

Speaking about Wydham hotel, Ignatius Plangnaan, said the hotel brand is the signature brand of the largest hotel franchisor in the world, with over 8,900 hotels, and 812 rooms, in over 95 countries.

Also, Head of Administration, Denver Building Services Limited, Brigid Chioma Anijeke, said the Nigeria Police Coop Multipurpose is committed to delivering this one-of-a-kind project that positively impacts the Ikeja area and beyond.
