Paragon Architects has been appointed to provide detailed designs for the first phase of Tatu City’s business district. This 5000 acre new city in Nairobi, Kenya, is being developed by Rendeavour, Africa’s largest new city builder. The start of the commercial precinct, called Tatu Central, follows the rapid growth of the city’s residential, education, light industrial and logistics districts.

Tatu Central is designed as a walkable, green, medium density, mixed use city district for an integrated urban lifestyle in Kenya. The first phase is a 35 acre land parcel with 200 000m2 of mixed use rights for development. Tatu City, which is Kenya’s first operational Special Economic Zone (SEZ), has secured commitments from commercial and retail developers in the first phase.

The core of phase 1 is based on retail, business outsourcing, hotel and corporate head office opportunities that together will form the cornerstone of the new urban district, which is designed to become Nairobi’s second CBD.

Tatu City was recently recognised by fDi Intelligence’s Free Zones Awards 2021, winning in the category of Large Tenants in Africa and receiving an honourable mention for its workforce training for the local community.
