Two Rivers | Gigiri | 62,000m retail space

The Vision of Two Rivers Development is to develop a premium world class master planned urban address set within a controlled and secure development that will be a number one regional destination & address in East Africa and beyond for a long time to come.

Two Rivers development is a proposed 100 acre mixed use master planned urban community adjacent to Nairobis upmarket residential suburbs of Runda and Rosslyn Estate. The property is sandwiched between Limuru road to the south and the Northern bypass to the north within the diplomatic blue zone.

The development will create value by optimizing on the uniqueness of the site that has undulating terrain covered by a blend of indigenous trees and is cut across by two rivers. This not only provides key attraction for visitors and residents but also offers exceptional scenery for recreational space, entertainment, leisure and lifestyle facilities.

The site will be developed in an environmentally sustainable manner that will seek to protect and preserve the flora and fauna and the riparian reserve. To achieve this noble objective, the master plan has allocated about 30% of the total area to preservation of green areas.

The development will also make the most of the favourable climatic conditions resulting from the unique location of Nairobi within equatorial area to create destination that is naturally appealing in all seasons.

As an entry to the market, the Two Rivers project provides an inaugural project for the team to expand internally and to importantly build relationships with suppliers and contractors to leverage off for future developments in the region.

The proposed development is envisioned to integrate first world premium facilities comprising of: REL (Retail, Entertainment and Lifestyle facilities), modern office parks, residential apartments, hotels and public amenities (clinics, schools). These facilities will be supported by high quality centrally managed state of the art infrastructure. The development will be constructed in five phases and when complete it will have a total build up area of about 830,000 SQM.

actually, this project is by Centum. To control the development, they do not plan to "sell" plots. They want to build and lease/rent. I just learnt they managed to raise 3.2B by private placement for this project...

I wonder why they say it will have the largest mall. Garden city is still larger than this.

I love the project though.

I thought there was a previous thread for this project stating it will be built in the Rosslyn suburb of Nairobi.

Why not?

The company behind the project, Centum Investment, is East Africa's largest listed investment company on the NSE. Like most investment companies, they want to heavily diversify into the property market. If you think this project is big, you should see what they have planned to do in Entebbe, Uganda.

Looking at the location of this project. Its right in the diplomatic heart of the city. A suburb full of expats and wealthy Kenyans which doesn't have many venues for entertainment. Something like this is like a welcome relief to that quiet corner of Nairobi.

I was just wondering if the demand was there. Seeing as it is, then there shouldn't be any problems I suppose.
