Why, you are probably wondering, would anyone be marketing such expensive apartments in the midst of a pandemic that has brought the economy to its knees and so adversely affected the real estate market.

The answer to that question, according to the developers, is simple. The project began long before anyone knew of the Coronavirus. “And even after Corona,  life will still go on,” the developer said in a recent interview.

Besides, the views, the amenities, the services, the quality is unmatched locally.

“Here, you will enjoy a fully serviced luxurious home in Upperhill with international standard amenities from gym, spa, private elevator access, valet parking to VIP lounges. A place to truly unwind and enjoy Nairobi’s skyline,” says the developer.

The 88 Nairobi Condominium Tower is owned by Lordship Africa, a real estate investment and development firm, based in Nairobi. The firm, is a subsidiary of the Lordship Group, a real estate conglomerate which is headquartered in Central Europe.

The development is expected to provide 12,000 square feet (1,115 m2) of rentable residential space and approximately 16,000 square feet (1,486 m2) of garden space.

Other amenities include a supermarket, a restaurant, a gym, a heated indoor swimming pool and parking space for 435 vehicles. There will be a total of 288 luxury condominiums in the development.

There are three apartment plans in the building: (a) the one-bedroom executive plan, retailing at KSh11 million (approx. US$110,000) (b) the two-bedroom executive-plus plan retailing at KSh35 million (approx. US$350,000) and (c) the penthouse plans, of three and four bedrooms, available on the 40th floor and above. All units will be fully furnished.

WATCH:

The target clientele are the estimated 40,000 executives and corporate employees working in the Upper Hill neighborhood, which lacked executive residential apartments, as of February 2018. The development would cut down on commute times and reduce the use of motorized transportation, as some executives might choose to walk to and from work

88 Nairobi is an impressive 44-floor tower of elegance and sophistication. High above Upper Hill and the City Center, each apartment offers a breathtaking view of the pulsing Nairobi city and the far African horizons.

This inspirational tower consists of ultra-modern serviced apartments, with different options. Studio, 1 and 2 bedroom fully furnished executive apartments; 2 bedroom executive-plus apartments; duplex junior penthouses and Lordship penthouses at the top. Working with international Architects and Interior Designers, the layout of every apartment is superbly conceived, down to the smallest of details.

Living rooms and bedrooms with generous covered terraces and balconies, protected by transparent safety glass balustrades. You choose what your vista will be – towards State House and the Arboretum, the open fields of the Nairobi Club, or the morning sky over the CBD.

“We designed each balcony and each terrace to be a natural extension of your apartment – a place to relax, to enjoy the outdoors, and to experience the freedom of space. 88 Nairobi isn’t just a new address. It’s the centerpiece of Upper Hill’s new residential neighborhood. Created for your or your tenant’s condominium lifestyle,” says the developer.

Teacher finds silver lining in the middle of pandemic

Published

on

The onset of coronavirus outbreak in Kenya in March this year brought unprecedented suffering to many people. As the crisis progressed, many people lost jobs, businesses were closed down, while some families lost loved ones to the disease. Despite the dark cloud coronavirus has brought on many levels, it has also presented a silver lining for others.

For Beldina Kirito Oluoch, an entrepreneur, the Covid-19 crisis presented an opportunity for her business to grow. When the pandemic hit the country in March, Beldina and her husband were running two successful businesses — a bakery, Beldina’s Delicacies based in Kikuyu, Kiambu County and a landscaping company, Elegant Gardens Landscapes.

When schools and public gatherings were banned in March 13, Beldina, who is also a teacher at Alliance High School saw an opportunity to concentrate on her businesses.

“ The businesses were well-established and were running independently but I suddenly found myself with so much time in my hands after schools closed,” she says. Within days of the ban on public gatherings her baking business took a hit.

“From doing over 30 birthday cakes in a week our orders in March decreased to five,” she says. With the dip in orders, Beldina could barely pay her 10 employees at the bakery in March and April and was forced to send some on unpaid leave and retain others on half pay.

“Paying rent for the business premises also became a struggle and we had to negotiate with the landlord to offer us a grace period. Additionally, we also negotiated with micro finances that gave us loans to support our businesses to review our terms of payment,” she says.

With the effects of the pandemic getting tougher by day, Beldina and her husband had to re-strategise in order to remain afloat.

“Things were tough, but there was no time for a pity party,” she says. With many people being indoors due to movement restrictions, Beldina saw an opportunity in putting up kitchen gardens through her landscaping business.

Initially, the company had been specialising in installation of carpet grass, making lawns and laying of cabro and pavements, but had never designed kitchen gardens until the opportunity presented itself during the outbreak. The demand for kitchen gardens was so high between March and April as people were keen to grow their own vegetables. We would install up to 30 vertical gardens in a good week,” adds Beldina.

During the business hiatus at the bakery, Beldina decided to set up a YouTube Channel and teach baking skills online. The channel attracted a lot of interest, as many people who had lost jobs were keen on learning skills to help them earn an income.

Others were just keen to learn a new skill to beat boredom. At the same time, Beldina kept herself occupied by trying out different recipes in the house and sharing the outcome on a group she had created on Facebook. “From this experience I realised that I had a passion for cooking. The feedback from the group was also encouraging and an idea to set up a hotel was born in May,” she says.

Big leap of faith

With few adjustments, including offering online baking classes and making home deliveries, the baking business begun picking up in July.

The business that was initially offering basic and advanced baking training also resumed the classes in July. “We took only five students per session for classes that would initially accommodate 10. The two classes offered daily were always fully booked,” she says.

With the baking business, picking up Beldina and her husband were able to mobilise resources from friends and set up a hotel, Elegant Garden Hotel on a two acre rented space in Karen.

The hotel was opened a week ago. Beldina admits that it was such a huge risk opening a hotel, especially when similar businesses were closing down. But seeing her baking business rise up from brink of collapse encouraged her to take the big leap.

“When I shared the idea with some friends some thought that I was crazy. But I knew that there was an opportunity because people were tired of being indoors and were interested in eating out,” she says.

Beldina says that the pandemic has taught her important lessons on life including the need to have multiple sources of income at any given time.

At the same time, Beldina says she has learnt to be adaptable and change with the times emphasising that capitalising on online platforms to promote her businesses has been helpful in keeping them afloat.
