A community developed by Lagos State Government in partnership with First World Communities Limited under the CHOIS( Co-operative Home Ownership Incentive Scheme) programme to provide housing for low and medium income households.
The estate is accessible from Central Lagos via Epe, and from Ikorodu via Itoikin.

CHOIS City is conceived as the nucleus of a new town, evolving from the ancient Agbowa-Ikosi community. The estate is to have 4,000 housing units on about 200 Hectares of land with associated infrastructure and amenities. The first phase of development comprising 460 homes of 2 and 3 Bedroom semi-detached bungalows is built on 30 Hectares of land and it is deliberately low density to encourage first movers into the estate.

The estate is planned such that the blocks are arranged with communal facilities provided to serve each neighbourhood, including open spaces and playground.
