Located in Kiambu County, Kenya, Sasini Gulmarg Estate seats on a 403 piece of land. The clients vision was to create an integrated mixed use development consisting of Residential Housing Units, Retail, Hotels, Office Developments, Educational Facilities and Recreation areas.
The site for this proposed development is located 20 Kilometers from Nairobi Central Business district and 5 Kilometers from Kiambu Town. The development is approximately 11 Kilometres from Ruiri Town.
When completed the development will have 1,910 residential units with a resident population of 9,550 people. In addition the development will have a university with a student population of 5,415. The total resident and working population will be 30,000 people. The development will have 2 primary schools and 4 religious buildings. Others include
Office & Commercial Developments and a Hospital Facility. The vision developed has a Natural Green Space system of parks and river fronts of 74.28 acres or 18.4 % of the project site’s 403.6 acres. Our team was involved in establishing the most appropriate development mix in close consultation with a client appointed property consultant. Working with a team of civil engineers we were able to establish the bulk services demands for the development including their sources.
Change of use for the land from Agricultural to Comprehensive Mixed Use from Kiambu County has been applied for and is awaited after which the project will proceed to the next stage.
