Two Rivers development to contain East Africa’s biggest mall

26 March 2015

Centum is funding construction of Two Rivers, a development that will span 100 acres near Nairobi. Construction is already under way.

When completed, Two Rivers will span 830,000 m2. The 62,000-m2 shopping mall – the largest in Sub-Saharan Africa outside of South Africa is expected to open in October.

Based on the “city within a city” concept, the mixed-use development will feature modern office parks, residential apartments and hotels and public amenities. The new development will also incorporate sustainability measures.

Located at the Gigiri/Limuru Road, a 20-km drive from Nairobi’s CBD and only 30 minutes from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport the new development will be served by internal road networks – paved roads and walking tracks – and sub-surface cable ducts will be constructed for power supply; as well as power backup.

Two Rivers Lifestyle Centre is already attracting global retailers. Athena Properties Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Centum is managing the development.
