Nairobi CBD will soon boast of the largest mall space in Kenya

Posted on : Saturday , 29th September 2018

British architecture firm aLL Design and Nanyuki Cedar Mall developer Kiloran Development Group Kenya is set to construct the largest mall space on the periphery of Nairobi’s City Centre.

The development will aim to become a stand alone retail leisure destination but will also have offices. The shopping mall which will be christened ‘The Beacon’ is planned to be set on a site off the east of Uhuru Highway towards Bunyala Road roundabout. It is planned to occupy 28,500 square metres (306,771 square feet). The mall is said to, be the largest space in the City Centre as most large malls are usually found closer to residential areas as opposed to the Central Business District (CBD).

Said Marcos Rosello from aLL Design, “We were intrigued by Kiloran’s ideas for this mall in Nairobi and are pleased to be able to create an open-air mall with a focus on sustainability, fun and family which we believe to be key drivers of future international mall designs,” .

The mall will be positioned in its prime retail pitch immediately between major employment zones — the CBD, the Industrial Area and Upper Hill — thus broadening the localized leisure offer to encourage longer dwell time at the mall by visiting families with children, teenagers and young people. This is aLL Design’s first project in Africa and the second shopping centre-led development for Kiloran LLP, who have offices in both London and Nairobi.

The mixed use space will feature a shopping centre and Grade A office project.It plans to have 24,300 square metres of retail, food and beverage along with a 4,200 square metre, seven-storey office tower overlooking the mall’s roof garden and bar. The shopping mall according to the architect will be completed in 2020.
