Mackay to design Nairobi hotel

Pictures can be found here: http://www.designweek.co.uk/Articles...obi+hotel.html

Mackay & Partners has been appointed by Mara Property Management as architects and interior designers for a four star 150-bedroom hotel in Nairobi.

The consultancy has been tasked with creating a new iconic hotel, which will have a prominent skyline presence overlooking the Nairobi National Park to the south, and the city.

Rising above a landscaped podium, the hotel will house a business centre, conference centre, spa and car parking. The ground floor lobby and grounds will flow through to the landscape and the distant city views.

In addition, the hotel tower rooms have been located to the north to take advantage of the views. All rooms will have breezeways, balconies and solar shading.

Mackay & Partners have previously been involved in hotel projects such as St Martin’s Lane, Sanderson Hotels London, Claridges, South African and New Delhi, India.

Kenya: East Africa's Version of Nigeria

Kenya is, probably the most promising East African economy by far. And, with these developments, this will only strengthen that claim even more.

Four major companies are establishing their African Headquarters in Nairobi. All this news came in the space of two months. It shows how prominent Nairobi is as a financial/economic centre.

http://bdafrica.com/index.php?option...84&Itemid=2826



14 July 2007: The creation of a pan-African headquarters for media and advertising group Young and Rubicam (Y&R) brands in Nairobi is the latest in a trend of big business centring wide-reaching regional operations in the capital city.In February, the global office of Y&R agreed to move their African operations headquarters from Johannesburg, South Africa, to Nairobi.

The former managing director of Y&R’s local subsidiary, Ayton Young & Rubicam (AY&R), Mr Chris Harrison, became chief of the pan-African operation in the move.

From his Nairobi office, Mr Harrison will oversee Y&R’s operations in 12 African and Indian Ocean countries, between South Africa and the Sahara, including west African economic powerhouses Nigeria and Angola and the prosperous French-controlled island of Reunion.

Google sets up base (Nairobi) in Sub-Saharan Africa
http://mybroadband.co.za/nephp/?m=show&id=6695



11 June 2007: Google is moving outside of the continental comfort zones for most global investors, North and South Africa, and is opening its first operation in Sub-Saharan Africa.


Kenya has been chosen as the base camp for what is likely to turn into a sub-regional business. It has chosen Joseph Mucheru, former CEO of Wananchi to be its Site Lead- Kenya and although he has barely got his feet under the desk, Russell Southwood spoke to him about what Google might be doing, infrastructure initiatives and Kenya's media and communications bills.

NAIROBI: Coca Cola to build $10.4 million regional headquarters
http://www.bevmanager.com/article/ar...ash=338282460b



Soft drink giant Coca Cola is finally putting up $10.4 million headquarters building to oversee its operations in 27 East and Central African countries.

Coca Cola has had a presence in Africa since 1928, when its first bottling plant was established in Johannesburg. In the rest of Africa, Coca Cola, the soft drink, was first produced after the Second World War.

The business has been continually expanding ever since. With its track record in marketing innovation, Coca Cola’s proposed new head office is a vote of confidence in the newly expanded East African Community with its population of over 110 million people.(bm)
