You are right. I'll post this in the Nairobi section as well. Its supposed to serve the Ridgeways, Runda and other northern suburbs of Nairobi as well as the greater Kiambu area.

I think in the next 5 years, every major urban area with a population of 50,000-100,000 will have at least one mall.

Just read in one of the local daily papers (The People) that this project should provide housing for at least 7000 residents. There was a ground breaking ceremony recently.

That paper still exists! it was the "nairobi Star" of its day back in the 90's.One of the few bold newspapers that challenged Moi at the time.I am always happy to se housing projects coming up even if its from the private sector.Because this means,the birth of a slum was prevented somewhere else.If 70 to 80 percent of the population in Kiambu county would be housed in formal settlements,then that would be a very positive step forward for one of the richest counties in kenya.(Apart from nairobi).

Does anyone know the official figures of the number of Nairobians living in slums? Most sources says 1/2 of Nairobians, which seems like a bit of an exaggeration to me.

According to United Nations Center for Human Settlement (Habitat), 1.6 million Nairobians live in slums. I assume that they have done their research and therefore their numbers ought to be somewhat reliable. According to the same source, nearly 70 percent of urban dwellers live in slums. You can download the report from this site: http://www.unhabitat.org/pmss/listIt...icationID=2602

It's really a sad state of affairs and I am glad there are some who see it for what it is and are trying to do something about it. Just recently, there was a report in one of the papers that Kenya only produces a few thousand homes per year against a demand that runs into hundreds or thousands. This is a situation that the private sector cannot handle alone, and the government's hand is imperative. With one dollar a day in earnings, how much economic power does a poor person have to purchase or rent a decent home from the private sector?

Thika, Bahati ridge.

I couldn't get any pics for this development though the ground breaking ceremony was held this week.

Quote:
Bahati Ridge is located along Gatanga road, 3Km off Thika-Nairobi Highway, a 45-minute drive from Nairobi. Amenities here will include a school, medical centre, conference hall and hotel, business office park, shopping mall and a club house.

It targets the middle class commuter lifestyle which will be enhanced by the completion of construction of the Nairobi-Thika Superhighway in 2012.

The developer, Bahati Ridge Development Ltd, also hinges the investment on the commuter rail system which is expected to cut down on the commuter cost and time considerably in a bid to decongest the city.

The first phase of the housing project set on a 95-acre piece of land comprises 381 houses. These include apartments, townhouses, villas, bungalows and cottages. The introductory prices for the townhouses, bungalows and villas range from Sh8.5 million to Sh14.5 million. Phase two will have about 400 houses. Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth said the project will give Thika and its surrounds a new face as a residential hub.“This is really a breakthrough moment in offering a lifestyle experience at affordable pricing for Nairobi city dwellers,” said Gilbert Kibe, managing director of Bahati Ridge Ltd.

Here's a render for Bahati ridge. Reminds me of some of those British suburbs with semi detached houses.
