Actually that is past Curson towers and Ole Sereni. The area being built up was formerly St. James Hospital. A lot of development is ongoing currently. The St. James site is still a big hole on the ground or at best construction of the foundation is on going. Next to this site are 2 tall flat/apartment blocks under construction. I don't know if this is part of Next Gen. And finally, immediately opposite the site is a brand new establishment (Eka Hotel). Sorry i don't have pictures.

Quote:
We are not just selling houses, but lifestyles as well,” Navin Shah says with the self-assuredness that can only come from a man who knows what he is talking about.

“We are building houses today that will still be relevant by the time we exit the stage. We do not want to become irrelevant in the next few years.”

The ‘lifestyle offer’ that Navin is talking about is a multi-billion property development he is putting up on Mombasa Road, and which he has aptly named Nextgen Park “to highlight the fact that we are focusing on the next generation”.

The development sits on the four and half acres of land that were formerly occupied by St James Hospital and borders Ole Sereni Hotel, Eka Hotel and the Nairobi National Park, about five minutes’ drive east of Nairobi.

That five-star environment, as Navin calls it, will be extended into every crease and crevice of Nextgen in order to capitalise on the growing appetite for good living in the country.

His development is designed to attract “the discerning client” who wants a good life, easy access to the city and all the amenities that a property development should offer in this age.

It will feature, among others, three towers of residential apartments, two towers of serviced apartments, a 720,000-square-feet shopping mall, a water park and a doctor’s plaza.

About 60 per cent of the residential apartments will have uninterrupted views of the Nairobi National Park.

“Basically, that means the lucky family living here will have everything at their doorsteps,” says Navin. “The property market in Kenya has been growing at an amazing rate, and every developer wants to offer something unique to their clients. That is why, for instance, swimming pools have become the standard rather than the exception, but we want to take the game to a whole new level. That is why we are not evening shouting about the fact that Nextgen Park will have a swimming pool.”

Artificial waves

But he needs to talk about his swimming pool… because it is not your usual, run-of-the-mill affair, but an amazing creation facing the national park that will, among other things, boast artificial waves generated by a magical assembly of electric generators and an army of fans.

The pool will be part of an expansive water park that will also feature a kiddie area and a spa.

The additional features for the residential apartments include a five-star hotel-like reception lobby managed by a 24-hour concierge service, high-speed lifts, borehole water supply, a gym, two acres of landscaped recreational land, a stand-by generator for every apartment, intercom service, and a solar heater facility for domestic water use.

Also in the cards is the mother of all add-ons: a 40-seater movie theatre for every apartment.

“We are a social country,” Navin explains this curious, if not exciting, offer, “but we are doing it the wrong way. If you want to watch a soccer game, you are most likely going to get in your car and drive to the nearest sports bar. But you don’t have to do that anymore if you live at Nextgen Park. Imagine the kind of camaraderie you would get with your neighbours if you regularly met at this state-of-the-art theatre to catch a game, watch a movie… or even your daughter’s second birthday video? You could even hold tenant meetings here!”

That movie experience aside, every apartment in the development comes with a fitted kitchen, which will include, among others, a fridge, a microwave oven, an electric cooker and a washing machine.

“The customised kitchen will be every household’s dream, and the whole set-up and customised furnishings will cost us about Sh1 million per family.”

Also, every kitchen will have piped gas from a central location, and all that residents will be required to do is use a pre-paid system to access their quota of the gas.

Finally this project is starting

Property firm seeks to house oil companies at central point

In Summary
Developers said that the centre is modelled behind similar ones in Houston and Malaysia, which have made operations easier for companies in the industry.
NextGen Petro Centre will have 150,000 square feet of leasable space located on three floors.


Property developer NextGen is targeting to exclusively house oil and gas industry firms with its new complex located along Mombasa Road, Nairobi County.




NextGen Petro Centre has been designed as a one-stop shop for oil and gas companies involved in upstream and downstream activities as well as those that offer supporting services to the industry.

Developers said that the centre is modelled behind similar ones in Houston and Malaysia, which have made operations easier for companies in the industry.

More discoveries

NextGen Petro Centre will have 150,000 square feet of leasable space located on three floors.

The government said that more private companies are expected to invest in the sector as more discoveries are made.

On Wednesday, Australia’s Pancontinental was the latest to announce oil find off the Mombasa coastline.

“These discoveries have triggered significant interest from the private sector to invest in Kenya. With a sizeable local market of over 41 million people, the prospect of commercially viable oil and gas could drive Kenya’s growth to phenomenal levels,” said Energy secretary Davis Chirchir in a statement.

Some local firms have been able to get a piece of the oil and gas business despite being capital-intensive, which gives large multinational corporations an upper hand.

TransCentury subsidiary Civicon, KK Security, Crown Paints and CMC are local companies that are providing services to exploration firms.

Civicon constructs access roads and hauls equipment while KK Security offers courses on safety and security for drilling staff.

Growth opportunity

Crown Paints plans to supply protective paint for offshore exploration rigs and marine equipment.

“The oil and gas sector represents a huge growth opportunity not just for the Kenyan economy but also for Crown Paints,” said chief executive Rakesh Rao in November last year.Developers said that the centre is modelled behind similar ones in Houston and Malaysia, which have made operations easier for companies in the industry.
NextGen Petro Centre will have 150,000 square feet of leasable space located on three floors.


CMC is targeting to supply heavy-duty vehicles in the construction and mining sectors.

I think its under construction behind the mall. The curved mall facade will definitely be a landmark on Mombasa road.

There is a an advert for office space and retail space at Nextgen in the Daily Nation today. It indicates Nakumatt will be opening there soon and the mall is to be completed soon.

This may mean they are looking for money to complete or have found money and will accelerate the project. Hopefully we will see increased activity.
