Proposed Office Spaces and Conference centre on Mombasa rd, Nairobi

The design needed to incorporate office spaces as well as world-class conference facilities. As the design was on the second row of Mombasa Rd it also needed to be eye catching in order to raise its profile in that fast developing area of Nairobi.

Status: Proposed
Designer: Aleem Manji Architects

Proposed Mixed Use Development in Westlands, Nairobi


The design consists of several small blocks housing various facilities connected to each other by a pedestrian boulevard which could be opened up to create seating for the numerous restaurants in the design. It also incorporated high-end retail stores and a boutique hotel. The design was seen as the ultimate solution for the creation of an Urban District.

Proposed Shopping Mall (Urban Square) on Thika Rd, Nairobi

Status: Proposed
Designer: Aleem Manji Architects

The principal organizing principle was that of a series of smaller courtyards around a central atrium, thus dividing the shopping block into four distinct quadrants.

Major Bypasses Currently U/C



Eastern Bypass
Quote:
The 39-km bypass starts on the Ruiru-Kiambu road. It crosses the Northern bypass and the Ruiru railway line into Thika road. After crossing Thika Road, it crosses Kamiti, Gathara-ini and Nairobi rivers into Ruai. The corridor then crosses Kangundo Road and proceeds to Mombasa Road via Embakasi Garrison and the North Airport Road.

Northern Bypass
Quote:
The Northern bypass is one of Kenya government’s major infrastructure projects aimed at making the country a regional business hub.

The 31-km bypass starts from Ruaka trading centre along Limuru Road, overpasses Banana Road through Runda and Thome estates. It then proceeds to Kahawa West and eventually to Ruiru, through Kamae, where it joins the Eastern bypass.

The Northern bypass together with the Eastern Bypass will cost Sh8.5 billion. Kenya is financing 15 per cent of the project (Sh1.2 billion) while the China is financing the remaining 85 per cent (Sh7.3 billion).

Once complete, the Northern bypass will be wide enough to accommodate two heavy commercial vehicles going opposite directions.

Southern Bypass

China to Build Nairobi Southern-Bypass

Talks between Kenya and China over the construction of the Nairobi Southern by-pass are almost complete, Roads minister Franklin Bett has said.

According to the minister, negotiations for the loan agreement are at the final stages and construction work on the road will kick off soon.

“We have concluded the negotiations and we will soon be meeting to sign the bilateral agreement to construct the road,” said Bett.

The Southern by-pass, expected to cost about Sh17.5 billion, will link heavy traffic flow on the Mombasa Road near the Ole Sereni Hotel running along the Nairobi National Park fence across Langata Road into Kikuyu town to join the Nairobi-Nakuru highway at Rironi near Limuru. The 28.6km road is expected to cost Sh17.5 billion.

KAA signs Sh55bn ($653.7 million USD) deal for new airport terminal
http://www.nation.co.ke/News/KAA+sig...b/-/index.html

IN SUMMARY
  • KAA argues that it put into consideration the business development strategy of the national carrier, Kenya Airways, in deciding on the master plan.

  • However, Kenya Airways (KQ) and the Vision 2030 secretariat have opposed the design being floated by the company which won the tender raising questions on the nature of consultations that took place with KQ.

  • Vision 2030 director-general Mugo Kibati has also said that his institution had nothing against the tender process but was opposed to the design of the new airport terminal on grounds that it is unfavourable for the expansion strategy of Kenya Airways.


Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) has signed the contract for the Sh55 billion airport tender with a Chinese firm in what is promising to bring to an end the controversy that has dogged the project for months.

A day after the Cabinet gave the go-ahead for the new terminal at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the KAA moved to complete the deal for the project. The project – the Greenfield Terminal – is expected to take three years.

It will be undertaken by Anhui Construction Engineering Group (ACEG) in a joint venture with another Chinese firm, China National Aero-Technology International Engineering Corporation (CATIC).

Final renders for Le Mac 22 Floors in Westlands....


Developer unveils 22-storey luxury apartments

http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/D...o/-/index.html


In Summary:
  • Construction of the 22-storey building along Waiyaki Way in the Citys Westlands neighbourhood has begun.

  • The building, expected to be complete in 2015, is set to be among the tallest in the area.

  • It will provide a mix of office and retail space on the lower floors, and one- and two-bedroom residential apartments in the 16 upper floors.

  • Ravi Vasta, a director of Mark Properties, the firm that owns the project, said the Dubai-styled housing project is targeting wealthy buyers and renters seeking accommodation in exclusive environment.
  • One-bedroom apartments are selling at between Sh14.4 million and Sh15.5 million depending on the floor, where the homes in the higher floors are costlier on the argument that they offer wider views of the city.
  • Mr Vasta says that the family-owned firm which has been involved in property development for nearly a decade will provide the bulk of the financing for the mega project but expects that any shortfalls would be plugged using bank loans and proceeds from pre-sales.

I forgot to mention that this is an entirely new terminal from T1. Greenfield Terminal will expand JKIA's capacity to 20 million in its first phase. The current expansion of the first terminal will expand capacity to 9 million (which passenger arrivals will overtake in a few years.)
