The buildings are equipped with 100% power back- up, provision for air conditioning, high-speed elevators, state-of-the-art communication, video surveillance and life safety equipment, all managed through a sophisticated Building Management System.

Showroom/Retail Space
Biggest effort, when it comes to the shopping experience at Sameer Business Park, has been to create African street animation that you have here – transparent glass storefront, a minimal color palette and simple fixtures that don't detract attention from the product.

Barricades, ramps, stairs and street lamps create the metro mood, and world-class showrooms.

All showrooms have a captive view from Mombassa Road.

Our design is really a backdrop for the merchandise; it's there to enhance your merchandise.​

Sameer to open its Sh2 billion business park early next year

Sameer to open its Sh2 billion business park early next year

Sameer managing director, Michael Karanja.


Tyre maker Sameer Africa says it will open its Sh2 billion business and industrial park in the first quarter of next year to supplement shareholder earnings.

The company’s shareholders have gone without dividend for the last four years. The Mombasa Road-based company has appointed commercial property consultants Knight Frank Kenya to manage the leasing of the business park, which has been under construction since early last year.

Sameer Africa says the park will comprise modern office blocks and a showroom complex, retail space, and a helipad.



The park comprises five units totalling approximately 400,000 square feet of office and showroom space. Sameer Africa has recorded losses in the last two years since it converted from Firestone East Africa, but returned to profitability in 2008 by posting a Sh150 million after tax profit in 2008 compared to Sh118 million recorded the previous year.

Cheaper tyres
The company blames the influx of cheaper tyres into the market and an eight per cent increase in the price of raw materials, common external tariff charged across the East African community which brought down duty on imported tyres, and the cost of re-branding in the change from Firestone to Sameer Africa as the main draw backs. It is banking on its investments in real estate to raise cash and pay shareholders.

The construction of the park follows the successful completion of two phases of the Sameer Industrial Park Export Processing Zones that has now been fully occupied.

Mr Michael Karanja, the Sameer managing director, said the completion of the business park comes at a time where there is a scramble for office space in Nairobi.

He said many countries in Africa, including Kenya, continue to suffer from lack of high quality office space demanded by international corporate clients who see investment opportunities on the continent.

“The development of this park will go a long way towards the realisation of the industrial goals of Vision 2030, ultimately making Kenya more competitive in the ICT industry.”

Knight Frank Kenya currently manages over 400 prime residential units and over 1,500,000 square feet of commercial property, controlling the upper end of the residential and commercial markets in Kenya.

Among the properties under its management are the Westgate shopping mall, Nairobi Business Park, Capital Centre and the ultra-modern Tusky Mall along Nairobi’s Lan’gata Road.

The Sh2.2 billion Sameer Business and Industrial Park is due for completion in the first quarter of next year.



Knight Frank to manage new industrial park

By Morris Aron
Leading real estate and property manager, Knight Frank, has won the hotly contested bid to manage and lease the multi-billion Sameer Business and Industrial Park.
Knight Frank beat four real estate companies that expressed interest in managing the facility, after evaluations on experience and expertise came out in favour of the firm.
The Sh2.2 billion park—due for completion in the first quarter of 2010—will house modern offices, a showroom and retail space.
The park will comprise five units totaling an estimated 400,000 square feet.
Two will be double storey units, designed for showroom, and multi-storey units offering a flexibility of combined showroom and office space.
Investment destination
"The development of this hi-tech park will go a long way towards making Kenya more competitive in the Information Communication and Technology industry," said Michael Karanja, the Sameer Managing Director.
The building’s completion has been timed to capitalise on high speed connectivity following the recent landing of fibre optic cables at the Mombasa making country the preferred investment destination for ICT-related industries.
The second phase of the complex will see development of modern hotel and conference facilities next to the park on Mombasa Road, Nairobi.
"We will bring on board our core competence of agency, property management, valuation, professional and consultancy services spanning many years, in 43 countries around the globe," said Mr Ben Woodhams, Knight Frank Managing Director.
Prime market
Knight Frank Kenya manages more than 400 prime market residential units and more than 1,500,000 square feet of commercial property, controlling the upper end of the residential and commercial markets.
Among the properties under management by Knight Frank are the upmarket Westgate shopping mall, Nairobi Business Park, Capital Centre and newly opened T-Mall on Nairobi’s Langata Road.
