The main aim of this project is to examine the challenges of managing publicly developed residential estates in Lagos, using Festac Town as, the case study. For such an estate to maintain its value, need to be provided to prevent it from obsolescence.

In a developing nation like Nigeria, the Government is trying very hard to improve on the quality of their services in terms of social amenities, infrastructure, water supply, waste disposal, street light etc. so that the residents of the estate‑ would derive sufficient benefit. The magnificent estate which come into being as a result the decision of the then Federal Military Government to initiate a large housing scheme with the metropolitan area of Lagos in order to provide shelter to a large number of people. Another aim of initiating this project among other thing is that the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) should embark on a deliberate preventive maintenances policy in the estate.

In the course of this research, questionnaires were administered and 38 copies were answer. It was found that occupancy ratio in Festac Town is high. Finally, the project recommended that before the actual allocation of residential accommodation in any public estate, new occupants should be given proper orientation, enlightment and awareness of the facilities provided and the need for their proper maintenance so as to prevent them from further deterioration.

In general buildings are under managed in Nigeria particularly in the public sector Housing, other reasons that would be advanced for this little attention on managing public estates includes wrong priorities and the erroneous feeling that whatever is maintained is invariably inferior to new building. There can be little doubt however, that dilapidated and unhealthy buildings in a decaying environment depresses, the quality of life and that the condition and quality of building reflects public pride or indifference.


Public building can be defined as land and building that are owned by the government. A lot of capital is invested into the erection of buildings for the use of the general public to serve one purpose or the other this may be to provide social services for the public or due to large capital by such projects make government to invest in its construction at a subsidized rate etc.



In Nigeria, property management has been neglected by property owners. Presently, deteriorates at a very fast rate and thereby reducing the value of the property. These questions now readily comes to mind:

i.      Why has property owners left their properties in a bad state without doing something about it? Is It due to financial problems, constructional problems of social problem?

ii.       How effective are the management measures implemented by the housing corporations in public estates?



The aim of this study is to examine the challenges of managing public developed residential estates in Lagos using Festac Town as a case study.
