Groundbreaking for Tatu City middle income homes now set for 2017

Tatu City developer, Lifestyle Properties will break ground for the project’s middle income homes in 2017, the realtor has confirmed.

Tatu City’s developers said the project continues to develop at a rapid pace with global and Kenyan companies, such as Unilever, Chandaria, Dormans and Kim-Fay announcing plans to build production facilities at Tatu Industrial Park. Kijani Ridge, the project’s first residential development, is 70 per cent sold. Nearby, Nova Academies, will complete its first school building in early 2017, welcoming girl boarders. 

The announcement comes just as Tatu City, the 2,500-acre mixed-use, mixed-income satellite development near Nairobi, today announced the appointment of Chris Ochieng as Senior Development Manager in a bid to ramp up the project’s progression. Ochieng will be responsibile for delivering office, retail, leisure and industrial projects within Tatu City.

Prior to joining Tatu City, Ochieng worked for Centum Investments and was Managing Director of its subsidiary Athena Properties Limited, overseeing the 103-acre Two Rivers development in Kenya, the Pearl Marina development in Uganda, and the Vipingo development on Kenya’s coast.

The 2,500-acre, mixed-use and mixed-income development constitutes a residential, commercial, industrial, tourism, social and recreation amenities for more than 100,000 residents and 30,000 day visitors. Underlying Tatu City’s design is a concept aiming to shift urban development in Kenya from the familiar single node model to a decentralized urban environment. By doing so, Tatu aims to significantly decongest Nairobi.
