Tatu City is launching the third phase of its ‘Buy and Build’ residential project, Kijani Ridge. Located within the larger Tatu City, the new phase of the project introduces an additional 100 ¼-acre plots to meet demand as early phases sell out.

Speaking at Tatu City’s Open Day on 8 April, Nick Langford, Kenya Country Head for Rendeavour, Tatu City’s majority owner and developer, outlined plans for the coming years.

“We have seen a tremendous increase in uptake at Kijani Ridge as a result of a better realisation and appreciation of the Tatu City concept and value. We are helping many Kenyan families achieve their dreams at Tatu City by offering no reservation charges for booking and introducing mortgage providers that have pre-qualified Kijani Ridge plots for lending”, he said.

Kijani Ridge will offer amenities including a club house and restaurant, a school, a mini-shopping centre, a jogging track, a dam and natural green open space.

The open day, despite the early morning rain, attracted more than 500 people, who expressed interest in the prime property while lauding the amenities and green space at Tatu City. “I am convinced that this is a worthwhile investment for my family. The plan put together and the thought process behind this is certainly admirable, and I am happy to have an opportunity to be part of Kijani Ridge and Tatu City,” said Edward Muchangi, one of the attendees of the open day.

Tatu City is a visionary concept aimed creating a decentralized urban environment, complete with sporting amenities, industrial park, themed parks and a central business district. Apart from Kijani Ridge, the project offers a variety of residential products ranging from KES 2M to KES 50M to cater to the broad spectrum of the market Tatu Industrial Park has attracted multinational and Kenyan companies such as Unilever, Chandaria Industries, Dormans and Kim-Fay amongst others, that have already commenced building at Tatu City.
