Have you driven past Opebi road, in Ikeja, recently? Did you notice a big, self-imposing highrise next door to TASTEE Fried Chicken also on that road? The big and almost completed structure is at the final stage of completion! City People was there a few days ago. From what we found out, the Mall is nearing completion and it will be opened for business soon.
The iconic Mall, Ile-Oja, comes with lot of advantages for the shoppers. First, the down floor of the building is exclusively for car park and that can comfortably accommodate over 50 cars. The mall comes with different layers as expected. Those coming there don’t have to struggle to locate where they are going.
We can also tell you that there is an artificial giant tree that has been programmed to illuminate the building in the night with all shades of colours when finally opened.
Before we take you far, let’s tell you about the brain behind the beautiful mall called Ile Oja
She is Bella Disu, daughter of billionaire businessman Otunba Mike Adenuga. She is building the multimillion-dollar shopping mall in Opebi, the commercial hub of Ikeja, Lagos.
The new shopping mall christened “Ile-Oja” is situated along the ever-busy Opebi Allen Road in Ikeja. It has three floors with available lettable spaces from 75 square meters to 890 square meters. The mall is 98-percent complete, and is expected to open its doors to the public in the first quarter of 2023. There are also available office space at the mall.
The shopping mall is being developed by Cobble-Stone Properties & Estates Limited, the property development company that Bella controls.
Cobble-Stone, which was established in 2011, owns a portfolio of landmark residential and commercial properties across Nigeria ranging from high rise apartments, terraced apartments and detached houses, to office spaces and retail shops.
In 2019, Coble-Stone launched Sisi Paris, a 10-storey luxury apartment complex in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Bella, 37, is the eldest daughter of Adenuga, the third wealthiest man in Nigeria, according to Forbes Magazine. She presently serves as vice chairman of Globacom, the Nigerian mobile telecom giant that her father founded. She also sits on the board of Nigerian construction company, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc and Abumet Plc, a Nigerian glass and aluminium manufacturing company. Bella is also the founder and president of Bella Disu Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides education and employment skills to disadvantaged children.
The French government presented her with the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in December 2019 for her contributions to the preservation of arts and culture, particularly her coordination of the construction of the Alliance Francaise Mike Adenuga Centre in Ikoyi, Lagos.
