A one of a
kind concept

The Waterfront is a world class town centre with innovation in every square inch. Waterfront’s architecture is simply unique; it is designed to capture the imagination of the new age ‘Nairobite’ & to evoke the spirit of ‘Engare Nairobi’ that the Maasai drew upon years ago: ‘place of cool waters’. Our building facade mimics the intricate patterns cast by delicate reeds on the shores of a lake. A fragile lattice which hints at what to expect from the interior: air and natural dappled light.

The Design of The Waterfront

Here, we challenge the normative Nairobi typology- set in earth tones and traditional planes- we’re inspired by water. The Waterfront is a world class town centre with innovation in every square inch. Located in the heart of Karen, a traditional suburb of Nairobi, our overall site is 50 Acres surrounded by 5 Acres of landscaped lake front, breath-taking water features, and walking/cycle paths making it the perfect place for families to enjoy. We understand that exceptional circulation is paramount to enjoying Karen Waterfront experience. We offer a great variety of both local and international shops, restaurants and cafes in an easy to navigate environment with ample parking and accessibility for all. Parking is made easy with over 850 parking bays to use within both open and basement parking, accessible from either Langata Road or Karen Road.

We provide designated family parking bays and disabled users allowing for easy access into Karen Waterfront. Our retail galleries and restaurants aren’t the only way to indulge your senses, with over 50 acres of trails and parkland, our outdoor amenities and lake side activities will keep your kids entertained and allow you to re-connect with nature within minutes of your doorstep.
