It has been identified as the fastest growing towns in Nairobi; I mean who would have thought before of anything beyond lush coffee plantations. The scene must have been breathtaking while it lasted. No offense though change is as good as rest. We know what rest does whether famished or good as hell restores one’s wellbeing while releasing lots of good hormones. That bundle of rest to Ruaka has been real estate which finally caught up with her. Come to think of it with neighborhoods such as Runda, Kitsuru and Rosslyn; not to mention noteworthy offices like The UN headquarters in Gigiri swarming with expatriates -what took her so long?
Well looks like it was a case of delayed gratification if Two Rivers Mall is anything to go by let alone The Northern Bypass. Seating on 102acres it is a mixed use development including but not limited to office blocks, shopping centers and residential homes coming down to over 65,000square meters of lettable area. Indeed one of a size considering Garden City Mall along Thika Superhighway spans 50,000 square meters. In the spirit of entrepreneurship developers have come up with enough residential units for tenants and home owners seeking a taste of Ruaka.
Units range from bedsitters to 3-bedroom apartments all ensuite. With bedsitters/1 bedroom apartments rent charges lies between KES 10,000- KES 17,000. Of course services provided are electricity, constant water supply, security and parking for some. Other features include in-built wardrobes and kitchen cabinets, stainless steel kitchen sinks and ceramic tiled floors. You’ll be lucky to find DSTV/ZUKU Aerial connection or even plug-in internet access. 2 & 3 bedroom apartments maybe a good bargain especially when you think of swimming pool and gym; solar heater system, separate washrooms or better yet ensuite rooms, entertainment terrace, children playground just to mention but a few. Rent charges range from KES 20,000- KES 37,000 and KES 40,000- KES 60,000.
Think SERENITY think PROXIMITY think HOME think RUAKA. You’ll actually feel the breeze as the trees sway side by side during the winds; and catch some sun; and the rain too when the red soil get muddy.
