Abuja is the viable outcome of an ambitious national dream that is transforming a virgin savannah terrain into the show piece capital of the most populous black nation-Nigeria. Abuja officially became the capital of Nigeria on 12, December 1991. In establishing Abuja, a Master Plan was developed. The Master Plan was prepared such that land use, infrastructure, housing, transportation, recreation, economic and social services were to be coordinated and inter-related however, successive governments in Abuja neglected the principles and that in urban slums. It is the aims of this paper, to evolve modalities for spatial housing design capable of remedying the existing urban spatial distortions, in a sustainable manner within the Central City areas. The authors adopted content base analysis, targeted data from both primary and secondary sources. The Abuja Master Plan was elaborated to put in place, a sustainable urban spatial environment for all groups or classes of activities to be carried out in the Capital Territory. The Master Plan actually provided for low-income settlements areas, to be built by the government and to be occupied by the public servants; the private sector servants did not appear to be properly provided for and that led to Abuja slums. The goals and objectives of the Master Plan, development laws, the use of professionally trained staff in the execution and implementation of the Master Plan and integration of the informal settlements into the formal settlement areas of the Central City are recommended.
