That is not park road. Park road is proceeding on the earlier renders.

That looks like Shauri Moyo the stadium in background of the render is the Kaloleni city stadium. We can start a separate thread for the shauri moyo site.

I support fully government attempts to correct the housing market downwards for buyers. It will greatly help especially in Nairobi. In other counties this prices are high even for the proposed affordable housing.

However like most things with government in this second term is that their approach is to shout at people instead of talking to people and they like giving huge impossible targets.

They need to relearn the art of persuasion. Social housing is for slum upgrades. UN funded, residents of those slums are the active numbers registered at Boma yangu. Adequately inform public that if you don't live in a slum then social housing isn't for you.

Affordable housing means one has to join the housing fund levy, remit and hope to qualify in a lotto to own one. Its not direct. Then deal with the civil education. However how its been done by force is just another case of poor decision making and poor execution of strategy. The backlash is what's ongoing now. Set it right.

I am not paying 3% for a project that has zero public participation.

Moses Kuria proposes that the housing levy fund be scrapped and Treasury to directly fund it.

I have listened carefully to both sides of the debate on the Housing Levy. The Government is looking up to the Levy to unlock long term access to local and international capital markets for the Housing Development Fund, which in turn will give confidence to local and international investors who have pledged to pump into the economy Ksh 2.6 Trillion of direct investment over the next 5 years. Given our economy is in deep trouble with near zero liquidity, government crowding out private sector from the credit market, the chocking pending bills that are killing the private sector, unhelpful Central Bank rules that have forced Kenyans to store Ksh 300 Billion under their mattresses, a complicated VAT refunds regime, pro-Ugandan and pro-Chinese trade policies and a generally hostile operating environment for small traders and SME’s, injection of Ksh 2.6 Trillion into the economy is to me more of an economic stimulus issue than a housing issue. As such I would really love to see this project succeed if only to inject Ksh 2.6 Trillion into the economy and create millions of direct and indirect jobs. On the other hand I hear loud and clear that the workers of this country do not want to bear the burden of making this project work alone. They say they are very few of them in formal employment to bear the burden of the vast majority who are not formally employed. I will be reaching out to the relevant stakeholders with the proposal that as parliament we make an irrevocable commitment to vote Ksh 20 Billion from the exchequer into the Housing Development Fund every year for the next 10 years. The Fund will then issue 25 year capital market instruments to capitalize the Fund with around Ksh 500 Billion. This will in turn see private investors release the Ksh 2.6 Trillion over the next 5 years and thus stimulate the economy. This way we will not need to Levy the small minority of Kenyans in formal employment, all Kenyans will pay for this noble project and we will stimulate the economy and create millions of jobs

Government is a poor communicator. The boma yangu website does not even have renders for this project or other upcoming projects. Not even one single photo on progress. I took a walk yesterday and the site now has vibandas popping up. They have not even upgraded Muslim road part of which is a dirt road. For a flagship project it doesn't give it good visuals.

This project is likely to create hundreds of thousands of jobs if it takes off successfully.

This is different because it is not the government executing. The private sector builds the houses and the boma yangu fund buys the completed units from the developer. China state corp is doing fantastic work on the construction works but they should have a more wholesome approach like Edermann at the River estate who have transformed the roads in the neighborhood giving the whole place a much needed face-lift.

Edermann got the Ngong road site. Proposal for 3060 units in 15 blocks 34 floors

This is huge so it will need a separate thread. Below is EIA for Ngong road

Truly, the Ngong road project is so huge and requires a separate thread.
Seems like the Ngara project has been completely overshadowed by the Ngong one. Edermann doing a fantastic job with CSCEC construction giant.

With the two Edermannn projects, Nairobi will surely be in a class of its own when it comes to tall buildings in Africa. Much like what our Kipchoge is out there.

There is already a thread for this with renders/plans. Initially it was one project and was to be done by Lordship Africa but was later split into two with Edermann getting one piece and Lordship the other. There will be a total of 30+ blocks. 15 blocks is just the Edermann portion

The EIA for the project was uploaded last month on the NEMA website and if approved, the project may break ground in a few months time.

I must say China state corp is one serious contractor. Passed by after a month and they have really been busy already now on the 4th floor of Block A. At current pace they will top out on this block by end of June. Other blocks are about to rise. From the locals they are working 24/7

The project is having catalytic effect on the neighbourhood some old flats next to this project which has been demolished for reconstruction.

Very good news, we need more contractors and builders like this. If they do this well then I hope they get the slums social housing project. Imagine replacing the shanties with proper homes. Nairobi will be transformed.
Keep us informed.
