The project is a mortgage scheme, said to be the largest and most affordable single housing estate in Africa.
It gives church staff 30 years to pay up while also giving members convenient time frames to pay for houses of their choice and capability. Canaan City project was first announced a few years ago during Shiloh. News circulated the media last year which claimed the housing project is named “Mandate Estate.”
The Estate which has a fence of several kilometers will have its own police station, fire service station, shopping malls, parks and gardens, sport centers, swimming pools and Independent Power Plant (IPP) among other facilities.
On completion, Canaan City with ranges of homes from affordable one bedroom flats to duplexes and terraces is billed to become the largest housing estate in Africa.
The 15,000 housing estate called ‘Canaan City’ would be the second largest single housing estate in the world, second only to the Co-Op City Estate, a 15,342 housing estate located in Bronx, New York and built between 1968 and 1973 in the USA housing over 56,000 people.
Just like the various estates within the Redemption Camp, of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Canaan City is not open for sale to non-members of the Church.
