fourways junction

Fourways Junction Development in Nairobi

The Fourways Junction development is a new project being undertaken in Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi. Construction is underway and when complete it will have a total of 850 units within a gated property that will include offices, shopping areas, a hotel and a country club. The new project is located on Kiambu Road along the northern part of the city.

The project is being undertaken by the Suraya Property Group, a local developer, and is being financed by Standard Chartered Bank. “The idea is to develop affordable housing by working with financial institutions, land owners and property experts,” said Patrick Muraya, the chief executive of Suraya Property Group.

The construction of the first phase of 233 houses begins in May. These are scheduled for completion by the end of 2010 and the prices range from Sh4.9 million to Sh16 million. Buyers who want to finance a property at Fourways Junction will have to process their mortgage through Standard Chartered Bank, which is part of the equity financing arrangement that enabled the project to get underway.

In the big league as Fourways Junction kicks off
5th July 2009
http://www.eastandard.net/InsidePage...013477&cid=470

Late last year in December when guests gathered at the Nairobi National Museums to witness the unveiling of a mega development by the Suraya Property Group, Peter Muraya, Director of the Property Group stood up and promised that the construction of the Sh6 billion Fourways Junction would start in April 2009.

At the time, many were sceptical given the magnitude of the project expected to cover about 200 acres of land along the Kiambu Road and the proposed Northern bypass. However, last week, when the groundbreaking ceremony for the project was held at the site, a new precedent was set for this three-year old company and the real estate market in Nairobi.

Muraya said that the by mid January this year, 160 units had already been sold using the pre-sale concept to set the project on track with 80 per cent of phase one sold by the time of the ground breaking.

Altogether the development will comprise of about 788 houses, which will include a shopping mall, villas, apartments and townhouses as well as a school and a clubhouse to serve the residents.

Speaking at the groundbreaking, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Local Government Musalia Mudavadi, who also witnessed the unveiling in December 2008 praised the development as moving the country to new levels in the provision of housing. This, he said, would help bridge the annual deficit of 150, 000 units annually.

The Fourways junction is, however, not the only development coming up with the Suraya Group. They are planning another gated residential development for Mombasa Road in what seems to be another drive by developers towards the south of the city.

They are also planning something along the lines of Tatu city. My guess is that it might also be around Kiambu county.

Karen and Langata are like the Beverly Hills of Nairobi correct? The residents probably don't want the prices of living in this area to go down because they don't want people who aren't members of the city's elite to move in. I don't know if this is how it works in Kenya but its definatly how it works in wealthy suburbs of the US.

Yes its true.I just remembered Karen especially has some very strict zoning rules.The housing projects coming up in karen are gated communities with 8-10 houses.

Ernest, leave those mega projects to Kiambu county. The value for properties in Karen will eventually be higher than those in Kiambu.
