Verdant Ventures and JV partner GREA secure US Embassy joint as a major tenant in Nairobi
Greg Pearson, founding member and CEO of Gateway Africa, and Russ Murphy, CEO of Verdant Ventures released a joint statement, commenting:
“We are particularly proud to have the US Government as a major tenant. This project further cements the relationship between Gateway Africa and Verdant Ventures following our successful collaboration in the past. Kenya represents an important base for us from which we can build into the rest of East Africa, and we are excited about the real estate prospects in Nairobi.”
Aevitas Group, in collaboration with a local Kenyan architecture firm, Design Partnership Ltd, has been tasked to design this quality development. Construction is set to commence in October 2020 and will create an estimated 1,100 direct and 500 indirect job opportunities. The completion date is earmarked for April 2022.
“We will be making use of both local and international architects, mechanical and electrical consultants as well as civil and structural engineers. Services such as quantity surveying, project management, construction, and other sub-contracting services will be sourced locally, as we have had success previously with local companies such as MaceYMR. Materials will be sourced locally as far as possible, with only specialist items being imported,” Pearson concluded.
