Long-term strategic masterplan for Kenya's first full-format shopping mall, developing the area into a vibrant, mixed-use community
The Sarit Centre in Nairobi was Kenya’s first full-format shopping mall and has been trading for over 30 years. Broadway Malyan was commissioned to develop a masterplan vision for the next 30 years, and provide the architectural design for the next phase of works.
A long term strategy was developed for a mixed use scheme which makes maximum use of the 12-acre site and contains residential, hospitality, commercial and leisure components.
The next phase, of a major new retail offer plus a convention centre and leisure component, was designed as a series of extensions which double the amount of retail on site whilst keeping the centre open and trading.
A new rooftop courtyard surrounded by boutique retail and indoor/outdoor dining sits at the heart of the newly extended scheme.
