Building livable and sustainable cities has become one of the imperatives of modern planning more so that the rate of world’s urbanization is now on the increase especially among the less developing nations. There is also a renewed concern that improving the quality of life and livability of urban dwellers is no longer a simple matter of ‘bricks and mortar’, but a matter of human satisfaction with different urban attributes. Building livable cities and neighborhoods are also hinged on the fact that urban designs and structures can be very influential in the life of a city, its dwellers and indeed to the building of community itself. The present study examined the Quality of Life (QOL) and livability in selected neighborhood s in Port Harcourt with a view to highlighting the factors that predict quality of life and livability in the study area.
