Kaguthi group to build Sh7 billion Westlands blocks


Veteran administrator Joseph Kaguthi is among a group of Nairobi investors putting in Sh7 billion into an 18-floor twin-block housing project in Nairobi’s Westlands.

Mr Kaguthi’s investment vehicle, Westlands Skye Development Limited, which brings together a number of Nairobi professionals, is seeking to provide modern office space for companies on one block and high-end homes on the other.

The company’s seven directors have requested National Environmental Management Authority (Nema) to approve the entire project, but indicated the first phase will be the office block set to cost Sh375 million, taking 36 months to complete.

The block located opposite Citadel Plaza will have a three-star hotel on its first floor and provide tenants with three basement levels to accommodate 120 motor vehicles.

The regulatory filings show one of its directors, IT millionaire Henry Njoroge, has since pledged to move his company’s headquarter to the new facility upon completion.

Mr Njoroge is the chief executive officer of Xtranet Communications.

Other promoters include Kenya School of Monetary Studies executive director Prof Kinandu Muragu, Kenya Tea Development Agency director Joseph Wakimani, financial and tax consultant Catherine Ngurani, investment consultant Nguru Mutegi and audit firm WIA partner Joseph Irungu.

Westlands Skye Development, a has an authorised share capital of Sh1,100,000 comprising 11,000 ordinary shares mainly subscribed by two limited liability companies—Karimari Ltd and Dominion Securities Ltd.

Mr Kaguthi is former Provincial Commissioner for the defunct Nairobi and Nyanza provinces. He’s currently chairman of the government-backed community policing or Nyumba Kumi system.

7Bn for 18 floors something doesn't sound right.

7Bn is enough money for a 25 to 30 floor building. Like Britam Tower cost 5Bn and some change....

Delta Towers went for 1.2Bn I'm not sure how much Delta Corner went for but 7Bn for that ugly mess sounds like he's getting ripped off.

7B is surely a rip off. But then again could be multiple blocks from what i get from the article. Lets just hope these two blocks are part of phase 1.

It's a twin block tower being built in phases. So it's going to take a long time to finish... The first phase will be the office block costing 375 million as the article states..... It could be nothing but something's off about this....

The piece of land isn't that big in the first place.....

Update from Brian.

It looks like the building has been upscaled to 27 floors and the renders changed.

^You could have saved them billions after they read your comments here. Ask them where you can send your invoice.

Hehe.

At least they took notice. Now the building will add a nice dense cluster around the Nairobi Globe Trade Centre.

Sio udaku huo mkuu. Taarifa kuu hii hapa. I've wondered before why KPA doesn't have the tallest building in Kenya (read East Africa), yet it is one of the most profitable wholly-owned government agency. I think KPC (pipeline) may also be profitable but corruption will take them places. They could also build a mega building. BUT, let me not let anything steal KPA's thunder. We should celebrate KPA, and hope that this will be successful.

I have so much hope for Mombasa, with the Dongo Kundu and the bridges at Likoni and Nyali. This is great news.

With the space they are asking for that is around supertall territory considering britam is half that. Including their parking building.

I think this KPA tower now needs it's own thread.
