HR&A advises on the development of Konza Tech City in Kenya
The Government of Kenya in partnership with the International Finance Corporation (a member of the World Bank Group), recently retained HR&A to create an implementation plan for the first phase of an exciting new technology industry hub and mixed-use community called Konza Technology City. Konza will be located on a 5,000 acre site in the Nairobi metropolitan area, along the A109 highway to Mombasa. When fully developed, Konza will help Kenya become a world-class center for the technology industry and achieve middle-income country status, and improve the quality of life for Kenyans.
HR&A is leading an international team across many disciplines including architecture, planning, and strategy consulting. We are producing a business plan both to guide the Kenyan government through Konza’s development and to attract potential project developers, investors, and tenants. HR&A is currently identifying market opportunities that can be advanced in the first phase and strategies for financing upfront infrastructure costs.
