The Wings Tower development is a commercial office complex situated at Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue, Victoria Island, Lagos in Nigeria. The project was completed in 2017 and afterward, the Petroleum Resources Minister of State, Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu commissioned it in 2018. Oando Plc is the anchor tenant of the office complex.
The Wings Tower development features two 12-story office buildings, along with 27,000m² of lettable office space. Tenants on the property have access to 4 high-speed 12-person passenger lifts per tower. Additionally, the office complex also provides an in-built 3-floor car park, as well as retail space and a waterfront.
The developers of the Wings Tower included RMB Westport, Standard Bank, and Àrgentil Asset Management. One of the oldest civil engineering firms in the country dubbed Cappa D’Alberto was contracted to build the office complex.

RMB Westport and Oando are planning to set up a state-of-the-art office building in Lagos, to be named the wing tower. The tower, to be constructed within three years, will be located along Ozumba Mbadiwe road and will aid in the economic operations of the two companies.
Construction of the Wing tower will involve setting up a 12-Storey building on a road where many multinational companies are already operating. The tower will be built on a four-story parking area and a reception platform. It will have a waterfront restaurant, meeting rooms, a functioning deck to be used for social and corporate events, a public lobby, Porte Cochere, and a jetty.
“It’s an iconic building.”I think it’s a testimony that whatever we do in Oando, we do in a special way.” Wale Tinubu, the managing director of Oando Plc, who doubles as the conceiver of the project, said. She also indicated that many multinational businesses face challenges in terms of availability of “good” real estate for employee residential and company offices.
Standard Bank, RMB Westport, Oando Plc, and Argentina Associate Management are the project developers and financiers. Cappa and D’Alberto will be involved in the construction of the complex.
Oando has signed an agreement to lease one of the towers but has indicated that commercial leases will be available in the other tower once construction is complete. One tower is two-thirds of the way through construction.
