Garden City mall to house new Nakumatt store
Capital Business
7 January 2013


Quote:
Private equity firm Actis has welcomed retail chain Nakumatt Holdings to Garden City on Thika Road, after signing initial agreement documents.

Nakumatt joins South African retail giant Game as the mall’s second major store.

Garden City incorporates residential, leisure and office space with a 500,000 square foot shopping mall along Nairobi’s Thika Road.

Leasing agent Knight Frank is working with top local and foreign brands to fill the 120 remaining stores in what will become East Africa’s largest retail centre.

They are focused on bringing new fashion brands to the Kenyan market and discussions are ongoing with a number of South African retail groups.

Speaking during the signing ceremony, Actis Managing Director for East Africa Michael Turner said: “We are delighted to welcome Nakumatt to Garden City: its involvement demonstrates confidence in this development and our vision to establish the premier retail centre in East Africa. It reaffirms Actis’s ability to attract the best brands to its real estate developments, helping to expand Kenya’s retail base.”

Nakumatt Managing Director Atul Shah said the new store fits with the strategy of increasing Nakumatt’s footprint in strategic locations to help boost revenues.

“We are excited about the opportunity to serve our customers once again in this area as we continue to expand our services and promote our brand across the region. We welcome the development of the retail mall within Garden City as this is an area that has been massively underserved by retail services and is now set to benefit from the arrival of many renowned international and local brands,” Shah said.

Garden City will integrate best practice in engineering, construction, landscape architecture, and community facilities.

The project will include over 15 catering units, a cinema, an exhibition hall, an events arena, and a children’s play area within a 3-acre central park. Construction is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2013 and to be completed in time for Christmas 2014.

A residential scheme, including 420 apartments and townhouses, will be developed following the launch of the retail centre.

Garden City retail mall to house new Nakumatt store
Nakumatt
7 January 2013
Quote:
Actis, the pan-emerging markets private equity firm, will welcome retail chain Nakumatt Holdings to Garden City after signing heads of terms. Nakumatt joins South African retail giant Game as the mall’s second major anchor tenant.

Garden City is a Grade-A mixed used scheme incorporating residential, leisure and office space with a 500,000 square foot shopping mall alongside Nairobi’s Thika Road.

Leasing agent Knight Frank is working with top local and foreign brands to fill the 120 remaining stores in what will become East Africa’s largest retail centre.

A residential scheme, including 420 apartments and townhouses, will be developed following the launch of the retail centre.

Note

Garden City is situated with 400 metres of frontage on the newly-expanded Thika Road expressway, midway between the CBD and the Northern/Eastern bypass. Garden City site is four minutes from Muthaiga and less than 10 minutes from the CBD

Total investment for all phases of the project is currently estimated at around US$150m over a five year period

Garden City aims to be the first ‘Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’ (LEED) certified retail mall in East Africa, bringing down operating costs for tenants by reducing electricity and water consumption

In September 2012, Actis was named ‘Best Real Estate Developer in Africa’ by international finance magazine Euromoney
In October 2012, Actis announced the close of Actis Africa Real Estate Fund 2 at US$278m

Not too sure many folks here understand what a Wallmatt would do to Kenyan retailers. Walmart is not allowed in Newyork city because they come take over the market and pay people pennys...all the family owned stores that employ more people will go out of business. Be careful what you wish for.
