About Guzape


Guzape is commonly referred to as Asokoro Extension. It is located in the Phase 1 region of the Federal Capital Territory and it is the only developing district in that area.

It is in this phase that you have the likes of Asokoro, Maitama, Wuse and Garki which are some of the best places and most expensive areas to live in Abuja. And Phase 1 is also where the seat of power is.

Guzape’s topography is quite unique but also scenic. The elevation provides residents with some gorgeous views but the hills have contributed to why the Guzape is late in the scene of development like the other areas in Phase 1. Nevertheless, that has not stopped the rapid growth of the area.

Unlike a place like Wuse, Guzape is not all that commercial but that is nothing to worry about because you still have access to excellent social amenities in the district and around.
