Kenya’s Garden City Mall opens doors to public this week
By Standard reporter | May 25th 2015
East Africa's largest mall, Garden City is set to open its doors to the public on Thursday this week, as phase one of the eagerly anticipated 32-acre mixed-use project on Thika Highway nears completion.
Once complete, the first phase of the Mall will consist of 33,000 square metres of retail space including 120 local and international brands spread across three levels.
"Phase one of the mall is almost fully leased, and we're expecting more than 50 per cent of our retail tenants to be ready to open with us on May 28, including our anchor tenants, Game and Nakumatt," said Michael Turner, Director Actis, Nairobi.
The first floor will be anchored by Game, the flagship store in Kenya for the retail giant that is part of the Walmart Group. This will be alongside Nakumatt supermarket, Tile & Carpet and Victoria Courts.
Shoppers will access the Garden City Mall through the overpass at the Garden Estate interchange at exit seven, while those coming from Thika will use exit eight and then branch left into the new service road which cuts through Willmary Estate, adjacent to the mall.
