TATU CITY ANNOUNCES HOUSING DEVELOPMENT FOR 4,500 RESIDENTS
Tatu City, the mixed-use, mixed-income urban development on 2,500 acres near Nairobi, has announced the addition of a new high-density residential development to the project.
Construction by developer Lifestyle Properties is set to begin in November 2016, with 1,200 units on 30 acres and prices starting from Ksh6 million. The development is expected to house over 4,500 residents upon completion.
“Lifestyle Properties is delighted to be a part of the Live, Work, Play vision that Tatu City represents,” said Peter Karoki, Director, Lifestyle Properties.“This development will cater to a broad, underserved spectrum of the market that requires good quality homes at an affordable price.”
“Our residential portfolio at Tatu City is rapidly expanding,” said Nick Langford, Kenya Country Head for Rendeavour, Tatu City’s majority owner. “Lifestyle Properties’ investment represents a realisation of Tatu City’s vision of an open community with housing options to suit any budget.”
TatuCity has set aside 256 acres of residential land which will cater to more than 100,000 residents when construction is complete. Tatu City’s first residential phase, Kijani Ridge, is 65% sold. Tatu City has also established the 420-acre Tatu Industrial Park, which will be home to Unilever, Dormans, Kim-Fay and Maxam, among other leading Kenyan and multinational companies.
Tatu City launches school meals programme
Tatu City has today launched a meals programme for Tatu Primary School, which will enhance nutrition and encourage pupils to attend school.
During the academic year, the programme will provide mid-day meals to 250 children and staff of Tatu Primary School, a government-funded institution adjacent to Tatu City.
Speaking during the official announcement of the programme, Tatu City’s Acting CEO, Anthony Njoroge emphasised that nutrition is critical to a child’s education, as it enables them to focus on the day’s lessons.
“In addition to the school feeding programme, Tatu City is also planning to rehabilitate the facilities by providing the school with new furniture and education materials, such as books and other learning tools, which will go a long way towards helping the pupils learn in a secure and conducive environment,” said Njoroge.
The school meals program will give both parents and pupils added incentive to focus on their children’s education, knowing that a nutritious meal awaits them every day.
“We welcome Tatu City’s generous support for Tatu Primary School,” said Agnes W. Kigotho the school’s Head Teacher. “The meals program will go a long way toward improving the health, concentration, enrolment and retention of children in school for the long term.”
Tatu City is a 2,500-acre, mixed-use and mixed-income development with residential, commercial, industrial, tourism, social and recreation amenities for more than 100,000 residents and 30,000 day visitors.
