Building Collapse Alert! See Photos of Estate Plaza Adding One More Floor After 17 Years

Front view of the plaza, did you notice the one added floor?

A 17-year-old shopping mall which was a one-storey building in its previous life, has been added one more floor to accommodate more shops and, apparently, generate more revenue.

An exclusive report on TheCable has revealed that the popular Estate Plaza which is located in Magodo Phase 2 area of Lagos state, was a one-storey building 17 years ago, but is now growing taller amid the incessant building collapse in the state.

The owners of the shopping mall which was a one-storey building in its previous life, have now decided to add one more floor to accommodate more shops and apparently generate more revenue.

It was gathered that there is no sign at the site to show that construction is ongoing or that permits have been given by the Lagos state government for the height improvement surgery, but the building is currently being painted.

Tall ambition: One more floor for the Estate Plaza, Magodo

After the Lekki Gardens disaster, leading to the collapse of a building under construction and claiming 30 lives in the process, Magodo Phase 2 residents are now asking questions about the growing status of the plaza, where hundreds shop everyday.

The plaza which houses pharmacies, perfumery, supermarkets and salons, among others, had two floors allegedly added illegally to the collapsed building at Lekki against professional advice, and Magodo residents are now whispering about the legality of the additional construction work at the plaza.

The owner, rumoured to be a powerful politician, obviously has tall ambitions, but many construction experts and Magodo residents would think it is the height of impunity.
