Upper Hill is to the west of the main CBD, but a lot of businesses are investing in the area, so it's really blossoming at the moment! It's cheaper than the CBD and there is more land available. Some embassies are located in the area too, as well as bank headquarters, hospitals etc. Kind of a 'second business district' I guess, the same as Westlands up to the north of the city centre.

Nairobi tops index of most strategic city for multinationals eyeing Africa
The Nation
25 November 2014


Quote:
Nairobi has topped the list of the most strategic city for multinationals eyeing the African market.

This is a major boost to the government’s efforts to make Nairobi a regional hub.

The city beat those in Southern and Western Africa, previously thought to be the most preferred.

According to the Africa Integration Index released by Visa on Tuesday, Nairobi is the most attractive due to its expansive dual air connectivity with the world, as well other to African countries.

While South Africa is ranked as the most globally integrated country on the continent, the second biggest economy in Africa lacks similar connections to the Africa continent, which Kenya has, thanks to the national carrier.

MasterCard to open Sh1bn Africa research lab in Nairobi next year
Business Daily
December 2014


Quote:
MasterCard is set to open its first ever African research laboratory in Nairobi next year, raising Kenya’s status as a financial technology hub on the continent.

The facility, to cost about Sh1 billion ($11 million), will be equipped to develop and deploy new payments systems such as mobile money apps and cashless payments that will make transactions faster and easier for consumers.

The New York-based firm said it selected Nairobi as the home of the pioneer MasterCard Lab in Africa due to Kenya’s global repute for piloting mobile money platforms and development of e-commerce and payment innovations such as M-Pesa.
