Estimated to cost 500 Billion Kenya shillings upon its completion, the project termed the Northlands City is projected to consist of low-to-high income residential areas, schools, agriculture zone, commercial space, an industrial area and a central business district all of these developments occupying the 11,576 acre parcel of land.
In reference to their strategic plan the land will be developed in a period of fifty-years trickled down in four phases. After an environmental Assessment carried out on the city plan reveals that the city will have a population of 250,000-people.
Let's have a look at the three main projects set to occupy the Northland city by the end of 50 years as projected by the city strategists.
Residential Housing and The CBD
Northlands City has set aside 3,570 acres for residential housing broken into three categories – low, medium, and high-density residential housing each taking 3134 acres, 130 acres, and 306 acres respectively. According to the plan, the city will also have a business district located near the Thika superhighway and Kenyatta University.
The city will host an industrial park that will sit on 695 acres . A logistics park will be set up in 650 acres of the land and the rest set aside for Brookside Dairies. According to a progress report on Northlands City, land set aside for industrial development is being sold at Ksh 40,000,000 per acre after investors injected funds to develop infrastructure in the planned city.
Wildlife conservancy and recreation
A total of 1697 acres have been set aside for an open recreational space with 266 acres of it set for water features.
This will offer residents a means to enjoy their stay in the city. Moreover, a wildlife conservancy will be set up in the city occupying a total of 5156 acres. The master plan further shows that 33 acres of the land have been set aside for either a hotel or shopping mall and 2 acres earmarked for a club house.Refrences and photos
