While these rebuilding are aimed at meeting certain modern urban housing and planning demands, many businesses have been forced to relocated to give room for these reconstructions. A shift that has also generated a fair share of losses as businesses have to invest in new locations and communication on their new locations.
Some of the buildings being demolished are not because they are substandard but because new owners have considered new building designs to occupy their spaces. Owning a commercial building within Nairobi CBD is one of the most difficult achievements that every single entrepreneur look up to. And with the current competitive structures coming up, new owners have to be creative with their designs and terms to attract many occupants.
