dc.description.abstractFestac Town Housing Estate (Phase 1) was conceived and executed in the 70’s as a masterpiece in term of providing mass housing, livable environment and complimentary infrastructure facilities. This study uses the purposive and stratified sampling and the instruments of interview, and questionnaire schedule to a sample population of 210 Festac residents to investigate the livability in the Estate with particular reference to condition of buildings and international building amenities are generally good, while infrastructure facilities are in satisfactory condition. Rents for vacant accommodation, water / tenement rates, and public transportation are quite high but largely affordable. However, 52% of the sample residents are willing to trade off security and access to work place, by relocating elsewhere but are constrained by the initial costs of securing alternative accommodation. The work concludes that, in spite of the harsh economic climate, the Estate is able to meet the needs and aspirations of its residentsen_US
