Your Imagery Work Break – 360 Degrees Ikoyi Collapse

We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

November marks the beginning of the holiday season and the true shift into colder weather. Grab something hot to drink and take a walk in the brisk air for a work break today. Before you head out, take a moment to check out this 30-cm WorldView-3 image which was collected over a building collapse in Lagos, Nigeria on 11/3/2021. This image was collected only two days after the fall of the building, which occurred on 11/1/2021.

Formerly known as Fourscore Heights, 360 Degrees Ikoyi is a 39-unit, 21-story residential project being developed and contracted by Fourscore Homes Limited with starting prices for the units close to $900,000. 360 Degrees Ikoyi was one of three such upscale towers, which were grouped closely together. Two of the tree towers were left standing, while the third suffered a catastrophic structural failure. It’s currently unclear why the building collapsed. At least 42 people were killed when the building tragically fell.

Enjoy the rest of your work day!  Have a great rest of your workday!
