Windsor Village is a revolutionary vision for a new city quarter in Nairobi on a truly remarkable scale. Located on a prestigious 86.4 hectare land adjacent to the Windsor Golf Country Club & Resort, its strategic transport connections allow us to create a truly world class mixed-use development. The masterplan consists of an international conference centre, retail town centre, jungle and water theme park, business park, education park and a number of residential & resort quarters.Whilst the major focus of the scheme has been emphasizing on the establishment of the Special Economic Zone, the mix of uses within the masterplan will bring balance to the social aspect. Its commercial viability will attract foreign investments while the integration of the social aspect will create a sustainable community that will be a vibrant place for people to live, work and play. For residents it will simply be “home”; but for others who work here or are visiting it will be an uplifting place, full of energy and vitality. The project will create jobs for thousands, both during and after its construction.​

Love the emphasis on pedestrianized green open spaces. Even the roads pass underground.

The victorian terraces will most likely be copies of those in London, not out of place considering this is Windsor.

Windsor Village is very reminiscent of how the heritage lobby here in the UK want new developments to look. The architecture and development community here is very much opposed to this type of development lol.
