Imperial Bank owners to build Sh2 billion hotel​

source

The owners of Imperial Bank have partnered with a Malaysia-based hotel chain to construct a Sh2.2 billion budget hotel in Westlands by July next year. Tune Hotels will build their first African hotel in Kenya in a joint venture with the Imaran Group, a Kenyan investment firm that also built properties such as Imperial Court in Westlands, Kivulini in Thika and Mvuli Suites in Ngara.

The 12-storey hotel will have 280 rooms, which will be offered on a limited service model where customers only pay for what they use during their stay.

Tune Hotels joins a growing list of global hospitality brands that have set up shop in Kenya in the last two years looking to benefit from increased luxury and business travel.

“Tune Hotels Group plans to invest about $25 million (Sh2.2 billion) in its new hotel in Kenya,” Mark Lankester, the group chief executive officer, said in Malaysia last week.

Not so nice architecturally, but it is a budget hotel. The increase in hotel rooms for Nairobi is welcome.

I believe this is true the building was probably being built for office spaces and was bought by Tune to be used as a hotel.

I'll hunt for construction pics

This one is actually under construction.It is on Chiromo Lane just a few metres from Delta Corner Towers where there was a petrol station which was being demolished last year.I saw it on Citizen business news roundup on Thursday this week.The journalist is probably right on this one

Sorry I meant Chiromo Road not Chiromo Lane which cuts through Muthithi Road.Brian those which do not have a board tend to be just few floors

Is it under construction?Because when I saw on Citizen news about a month ago they showed a building under construction with Delta Towers I had assumed it was on Chiromo Road.Does it have a sign board and a render on it?

I have got pictures that i believe are for this project. Disclaimer!!!! This is 99% certainty since no express indication that it is tune hotel. My own analysis. If anyone know what building this is then i stand to be corrected.

Said Location.


Pictures as per today.
