Casino Heights is a residential development in Yaba being completed through a joint venture partnership between GTL Properties Limited, a subsidiary of Greenwich Trust Limited and Wemabod Estates Limited. It is situated along the Herbert Macaulay highway, at the intersection of Ishola Street in Yaba.

According to the developers, the casting work of the 9th-floor slab is nearing completion and the entire project will be delivered by March 2020. The site for Casino Heights was once home to the former Casino Cinema, which was built in the early ’60s alongside Danjuma Cinema and Capitol Cinemas. The structure had over three decades of influence on the Lagos cultural scene.

As shown in the images below, the design that Delano Architects put forward incorporates part of the original structure, to maintain some of the casino’s old glory.
