Kenya’s first award-winning
Welcome to Kenya’s first integrated residential, retail, and office development, including a three-acre central park, a dedicated children’s play area and generous lawns and gardens. Garden City is already home to 215 homeowners and residential tenants enjoying private access to our fully equipped gym, heated swimming pool, and clubhouse, and the convenience of living alongside a thriving mall with over 100 shops, a range of popular restaurants, bars and cafes, and East Africa’s largest iMax cinema.
These integrated amenities complete ‘the perfect mix’ of the ‘live, work and play’ themed Garden City development and offer excellent add-on value to the anticipated 3,000-strong office community from Garden City Business Park, offering over 20,000 sqm of lettable Grade A offices once completed, plus a healthcare facility, two hotels and over 400 mid-market residential units.
Designed by a team of international architects for both functionality and comfort, Garden City is another world-class real estate development by Actis, the largest real estate private equity investor in Sub-Saharan Africa. With a 70-year track record of delivering flagship retail, office, residential and industrial assets, since 2006, Actis has invested in eighteen real estate developments in eight cities and seven countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, representing USD $1.3 billion on a gross asset value basis. Over the same period, Actis has invested a total of US $300 million into Nairobi real estate projects alone, including Nairobi Business Park, Junction Mall and Garden City (Mall, Residences and Business Park).
Sustainability at our core
Green building best practice and sustainability is integrated into the development of Garden City, from its architecture, environmental engineering, structural engineering and landscape design, through to interior design and lighting. Garden City Mall is home to Africa’s largest solar panelled rooftop parking facility, and the completed retail and residential properties are the first mixed-use development in East Africa to gain LEED’s international Gold certification.
In 2013, Garden City was awarded Vision 2030 status by the Kenyan Government in recognition of its economic growth impact.
