Return on Cost Analysis The primary investment criterion is that the properties purchased must be capable of making returns on sales, short-lets, long leases, rentals and services. Renting Our apartments provide a competitive return on cost due to lower construction costs, high market rent, and low vacancy rate of 3%. There is higher returns on the coworking space on the rooftop, although access to the investment would be limited. Services – Other investments are in services like Electricity, internet infrastructure, which both yield 10% per annum




Site Acquisition Costs – The market value of the land was determined through comparable land sales in Lekki and from real estate developers. The average price per square meter in the location is 150,000. it is safe to assume that N80 million is the accurate market value of the site.


Real Estate Taxes – A uniform tax rate for real property located in Lekki is set by the LIRS and FIRS and costs N1.2million


Hard Costs – Site work costs were estimated to be approximately N45,000 per cubic meter for structural site work. Cost of finishes per square meter is 3,000 naira on all surfaces. We are adopting extensive formwork and concrete systems as it is substantially less expensive due to automations and suitability for vertical structures. The building shape adopts more squares as it makes the construction of this building cheaper.


Soft Costs – include expenses associated with marketing, legal, engineering, permits and fees, insurance, utility connection fees, taxes, design fees, organizational overhead, closing costs and environmental. A 5% soft cost contingency fee has also been added to cover unforeseen expenses and emergencies and a general contractor fee (development fee) of 4%.


Equity terms – The equity requirement was calculated by rolling up the development costs and land joint venture. It will be funded through crowdfunding.


Additional Financing – financing for the coworking space is separate from the main building as they are stand alone and optional investments.


Market & Vacancy Rate – Based on comparable apartments discussed in the market analysis, the market rates will escalate at a rate of 3% annually. Based on comparable apartments, the vacancy rate of 3% is a feasible assumption that will be used in the financial analysis.
