Before Ikota Shopping Complex gained prominence, shops that do not have doors and windows were selling for less than N2million. But as people started moving in, the developers of the complex continue to increase the price and now shops in Ikota Shopping Complex sell between N5.5million to N7million depending on the level of finishing and the location in the complex.

Research carried out by Castles Magazines revealed that, about 10,000 people visit Ikota Shopping complex on a daily basis through the 4 entrances that leads in the complex. About 3000 shops are in the complex.

Ikota Shopping Complex is now crowded to the extent that it will be difficult for one to actually get a shop for sale or to let. The question now is if there will be another complex like Ikota Shopping complex on the Island?  In terms of accessibility, infrastructure and what is available in the complex. HFP who are the developer of the Complex is coming up with another shopping complex known as Eastline Shopping complex. The complex will be situated along the Lekki Ajah axis and directly opposite Abraham Adesanya estate and will soon be ready for activity.
