Nairobi ranked largest mall development hotspot
Capital
9 February 2016


Quote:
Nairobi has been ranked the top city with the largest shopping centre development pipelines in sub-Saharan Africa according to new research by Knight Frank.

The Shop Africa 2016 report, an inaugural review of sub-Saharan Africa’s retail markets shows Nairobi is the largest mall development hotspot with around 470,000 square metres of shopping centre space in the pipeline.

Nairobi has an existing mall space of 391,000 square metres which is denoted by malls such as The Junction, Sarit Centre and Garden City, ranking the Kenyan capital the largest retail market in the region by existing shopping centre floor space.

Key mall space in the pipeline includes the iconic Two Rivers Mall in Runda and The Hub in Karen, which opened on February 4, 2016.

Luanda in Angola comes in second while Lagos in Nigeria has the third largest mall pipeline, followed by Dar es Salaam in Tanzania with Maputo in Mozambique completing the top five hotspots for mall space development.

According to the report, the top five cities fit the profile currently targeted by investors in Africa; that is, large, fast-growing cities in economies that have seen rapid expansion.

For updates on the forum we need proper renders not grainy stuff so that people can have a proper image of how everything will look like.

We start posting grainy and low quality images and the thread looses its standard.
