The 425-acre iconic urban development project is expected to integrate rail and other public transport systems in Nairobi. It will also be home to commercial and residential developments, a museum, cultural center among others.

Athi River Smart Green City

Located 10 km from JKIA in Athi River, the proposed smart city project will host hospitals, schools, offices, university, entertainment facilities and other mixed use developments, according to Dubai-based Hilshaw Group.

The ambitious Sh 500 billion real estate project is being undertaken by Kenyatta family on 11000-acre parcel of land. Its proximity to Nairobi is about 15km from city center.

Should the mini-cities materialize, they could model Nairobi to rival other world class cities.
