Nairobi Gate Industrial Park Launches Next Level Logistics in Kenya

By Virginia Mwangi / Published September 25, 2018 | 9:05 am





Improvon Group, one of Africa’s most established logistics and warehouse property specialists, and Actis, a leading investor in growth markets, has announced the launch of Nairobi Gate Industrial Park.

Located off the Eastern Bypass, this 103-acre development will offer state-of-the-art industrial and logistics accommodation for local and international companies, with quick access to key logistics and transport hubs such as the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and the Inland Container Depot.

Nairobi Gate brings a unique “build to suit” concept to Nairobi that has been necessitated by the demand for modern, flexible and efficient warehousing facilities. It offers flexibility and scalability for occupiers’ operational needs.

The development is estimated to cost 110 million dollars around 11 Billion shillings by completion.

“We are delighted to be working with Improvon and launching the Nairobi Gate, Industrial Park. We are bringing something unique to the market, not just from a development point of view, but also in our approach. The face of warehousing and logistics property is changing, with companies migrating to better locations and consolidating into single facilities to achieve economies of scale and operational efficiency. We are looking forward to partnering with businesses across the region as they make this journey,” said Actis Director for Real Estate, Koome Gikunda.

“Phase 1 of Nairobi Gate will span 103 acres and will consist of ultra-modern logistics, warehousing, and distribution centers, bringing a ‘build to suit’ concept to Nairobi in response to the demand for grade A flexible spaces. In line with modern trends it will integrate corporate offices, with excellent access, wide roads and turning circles that can accommodate interlink trucks, generous loading facilities and the highest standard of security, all set in a park-like environment,”explained Improvon CEO, Stefano Contardo adding that Nairobi Gate would be the most suited to light industry, warehousing and distribution centers and offers power supply, adequate water storage, maximum volumetric capacity, wide column grids, and generous parking.

The Nairobi Gate development will offer the latest in green design and sustainability practices that optimize natural light and harness temperature regulation and water reticulation, making it cost-effective and less impactful on the environment over the long term.

The Improvon Group has developed and tenanted in excess a 10, 000, 000 ft2 of logistic properties for use by warehousing and distribution operators across Africa.

Actis’ investment in Improvon will allow it to accelerate its growth across sub-Saharan Africa markets, starting with Nairobi Gate Industrial Park.

“We see South Africa, Kenya, and Zambia as key distribution hubs to the rest of the continent. East Africa is especially experiencing strong consumer demand and infrastructure development on the back of a resilient and diversified economy, which underscores the case for logistics and warehouse developments,” commented Michael Turner, Actis Director adding that Phase 1 of Nairobi Gate will be complete in the second quarter of 2019.
