Why the new
‘town centre’
is in Karen

More people are choosing to live and work in Karen and there is a steady stream of boutique restaurants, cottage industries and commercial enterprises that are populating the neighbourhood - all attuned to the unique quality of the local environment. Karen has set the standard for integrating the natural and built environment, adding aesthetic value whilst keeping environmental impact to a minimum. The Waterfront has adopted a low-density, eco-sensitive approach that fits in perfectly with the quaint nature and heritage that Karen has so carefully preserved in the past.

The Karen Triangle

Multi-national firms that are looking to set base in the East Africa market are increasingly choosing the Karen neighbourhood. It offers easy connectivity to the heart of Nairobi and still offers high quality living and working environment. The Waterfront is located within the ‘Karen triangle’: the intersection between Langata Road, Karen road and Ngong road.


With substantial Government investment in improving the roads network in the area, Karen is set to become even more accessible; and The Waterfront will be right at the heart of this crosshatch of thoroughfare moving into and through the area with ease.

Highways Authority (KenHA) has already begun works expanding the Karen-Kikuyu and Karen- Bomas roads, upgrading them to dual carriage standard. Additional lanes connecting Karen suburb to Ngong are also planned.
