Changing the face of real estate in Nairobi

Garden City is a $540m flagship project comprising one of the largest retail malls in Africa. With over 400 high-end residential units and a central park with a dedicated events stage, open to all, it also features the largest solar panelled carport in Africa, situated on the mall’s roof.

The residential component of Garden City comprises townhouses and apartments and is taking place in three phases, with particular attention being given to the quality of finishing.

In common with other Actis projects, Garden City has sustainability at its core and will be the first mixed-use development in East Africa to gain LEED’s green certification. Shortly after breaking ground in July 2013, the project was awarded Vision 2030 status by the Kenyan Government in recognition of its economic growth impact.
