Situated in Nigeria’s leading business and cultural precinct – Victoria Island in the heart of the city, Greystone Tower is minutes from all transport hubs
The form of Greystone Tower is derived from the overlapping intersection of two carefully proportioned rectangles and a simple rectilinear core. The rectangular form has been developed to capture the unique primary view corridors with each corner offering a primary point of generation or ‘center point’.
In the Southern corners, the center points are directly related to the significant views towards the Bar Beach and the views around the abundant water surrounding Victoria Island including the Marina downtown areas. The northern corners point towards Ikoyi and the waterway separating Victoria Island with views of Civic Towers, Banana Island and Lekki.
