The Ecosystem has a high level of bio-diversity which makes it be at stable equilibrium and resilience. However, rolling-out this project will cause migrations of organisms, (Hansen & Andersen) and loss of plant cover which if not handled in well planned manner could cause volatility on both the earth balance and the eventual structure.

The project will add aesthetic value to the locality as well as providing a renowned landmark.(point of reference)for directions.

In the cause of execution of this project and its completion, demographic status of this locality will be varied, considering the influx of persons drawn from different inclination of life, to help in ideologies among other resources necessary for the project.

The above mentioned, if not well observed, may come along with vices such as crime and ill health

More important, there shall be formal and informal transfer of knowledge, amongst the working team, which shall play a big role on cultivation of innovation to residents at large.

3. Economic Impacts
