The development will include residences, commercial buildings, industrial facilities, hospitality, tourism, institutions and communal environments. It is expected that Mitros City will ultimately cater for 180,000 residents. The city is not too distant from Lagos Metropolitan area, but also forms a new economic opportunity and identity for Ogun State. Accessibility to the site is of course strengthened by its frontage to the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
This update follows the recent announcement that the Ogun State government have reached an agreement with UBA Construction Company to facilitate the development of the city. The development is being built on low lying land, prone to flooding from the Ogun River, however the river will be realigned and dredged, to address this constraint. The City was unveiled at the Ogun State Government Investment Forum in Abeokuta, held on the 21st and 22nd of May 2014 (Images are shown Below).
