From Cytonn Investments Weekly Report, the project construction is expected to begin in August 2019 and will consist of 1,434 units, comprising of social and low-cost units.

The social units will comprise of 25 SQM- 1-bed and 50 SQM- 2-bed units at 1 million shillings and 2.5 million shillings, respectively, translating to 45,000 shillings per SQM.
