Tatu City has appointed Chris Ochieng as Senior Development Manager, with responsibility for delivering office, retail, leisure and industrial projects within Tatu City.
A civil engineer with extensive experience in the real estate field across East Africa and the Persian Gulf, Ochieng brings best-in-class project delivery to Tatu City.
Prior to joining Tatu City, Ochieng worked for Centum Investments and was managing director of its subsidiary Athena Properties Limited, overseeing the 103-acre Two Rivers development in Kenya, the Pearl Marina development in Uganda, and the Vipingo development on Kenya’s coast.
In Dubai, Ochieng was a development manager and engineer on a variety of projects, including Dubai Sports City and Dubai World Trade Centre, among other prominent developments.
Tatu City continues to develop at a rapid pace, with infrastructure delivered to site and global and Kenyan companies, such as Unilever, Chandaria, Dormans and Kim-Fay announcing plans to build production facilities at Tatu Industrial Park.
Kijani Ridge, the project’s first residential development, is 70% sold, while developer Lifestyle Properties will break ground on middle income homes in 2017. Nearby, Nova Academies, will complete its first school building in early 2017, welcoming girl boarders.
The 2,500-acre, mixed-use and mixed-income development constitutes a residential, commercial, industrial, tourism, social and recreation amenities for more than 100,000 residents and 30,000 day visitors.
Underlying Tatu City’s design is a visionary concept aiming to shift urban development in Kenya from the familiar single node model to a decentralized urban environment.
By doing so, Tatu will significantly de-congest the City of Nairobi by offering a unique live, work and play environment.
