More ever, british town and country planning act (1947) carrying out building engineer, mining or other operation in an over, under land or the making of any material residential building in the area, which later brought up to a standard of a distinct settlement most of those building built were able to change in their use as a result of the development of the town physically environmentally and economically.

With the federal government pronouncement of ilorin as a capital of kwara state.

There arose the need to create a business district and the resultant use for commercial use some are bergs restored to us formal use due to obsolescence that had set on the building for instance a three (3) bedroom residential could have it use change to an estate surveyors office.

Also, an obsolete terminates building with eight (5) rooms (i.e. face to face) may be converted to flat or any other type of design.

Although, the redevelopment enhancement aesthetic value of the building and make alternative enough for the type of the use proposed.

More so in some cases, alternation may have to be done to be both the internal and external part of the building for instance a converted office accommodation proposed to house a new bank may give it s approach view redesign and filled with many architectural decoration further more the frontal fence may have to be pulled down to aid visibility and give room for parking lots redevelopment project cannot be carried out without learning some task or challenge on the developer and even the property consumer.

With the context of this work re-development has been viewed as changing the use of existing building as its associated with economic returns of the properties.

In re0development, a process usually evolves and this start with the acquisition of the site and lentavely with new look physical and economic restrictions of the building.

Alongside with the re-development processes, it was determined that there were obstacles that stand in the way of the re-development project. The problem which range from the inability of the existing properties to produce greater returning to the problem of carrying out the construction of the properties. These and many others were critically examined and analyzed accordingly.

Finally, this dissertation is a problem solving is as those challenges and prospect with the subject matter were marshaled and provided with the considered recommendations.

5.2 Recommendations

In view of the identified challenges and property of property re-development a case study of Taiwo Road in Ilorin, the following are the recommendation considered by the researcher.

  1. It is recommended that planning authorities should not be biased in dealing with properties owners and developer. They should make sure that the law of town planning is implemented without the authority has been influenced.
  2. It is recommended that the land use act which empowers the governor should be reviewed so as to limit the power which governor can exercise in order to prevent a situation like that of formal governor Lawal and Olaolu computers along Surulere Lagos Road, Ilorin, where the governor used power to acquire the property owner under the heading of public acquisition where as it was acquired for.
  3. Government should reduce the taxes, rate of interest on loans building rates and subsidize them so as to enable them.
  4. Government should encourage the production of local made building materials and subsidize them so to enable the property owners and developers set them at their disposition. This would enable the development this would encourage people to embark on re-development project work.

5.3 Conclusion

From the result of this research work of the challenges and prospect of property re-development a case study of Taiwo Road Ilorin, it was observed that people have been struggling to be part of the commercial activities along these major routes in Ilorin. These are the area where business and other commercial activities are concentrated (i.e. CBD) most properties along these routes built for the dwelling purpose have been undergoing changes form residential uses to commercial uses, which are mainly shops and offices. Thus changing of uses triggers off the challenges.
