As part of plans to transform Marina and the Onikan region into a hub for tourism and recreational activity, Lagos State will be remodelling the John K (JK) Randle Arcade into a recreation/tourism centre dubbed the JK Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture and History.
After being demolished in Q3:2016, the Lagos State Government announced the renovation of the centre as well as the development of museums, cultural theatres and heritage centres under the tourism segment of the proposed budget.
Lagos based architects Si.Sa established their concept for the design of the property on the idea of liberation; the weave as an inconspicuous but visible facet of Yoruba existence and the South West, which is made up of forests and plains.
Construction Kaiser Limited (CKL), who have significant experience in the development of bank branches and industrial schemes, were appointed as the main contractor project in September 2017. The centre is located at the loop of the Onikan roundabout and covers an area of approximately 11,000 square meters.
