This award-winning 90-unit diplomatic apartment and town home community development custom developed on behalf of the US Embassy in Nairobi, marks GREA’s first development Kenya. Construction ran for a period of 23 months with completion in September 2022. Approximately 1,100 direct and 500 indirect job opportunities were created during this period. Materials and equipment were sourced locally as far as possible, with only specialist items being imported.

The buildings make use of energy efficient lighting and electrical equipment, and state of the art water purification, conservation and re-use methodologies, as well as high-tech waste management equipment
