NAIROBI, Kenya, May 25 – Garden City Mall will open on May 28 as phase one of the eagerly anticipated 32-acre mixed-use project on Thika Highway nears completion.

Once complete, the first phase of the mall will consist of 33,000 square metres of retail space including 120 local and international brands spread across three levels, with the first floor anchored by Game, the flagship store in Kenya for this retail giant which is part of the Walmart Group, alongside Nakumatt Supermarket, Tile & Carpet, and Victoria Courts.

Shoppers will access the Garden City Mall through the overpass at the Garden Estate interchange at Exit 7, while those coming from Thika will use Exit 8 and then branch left into the new service road which cuts through Willmary Estate, adjacent to the mall.

On May 28, the mall will be open from 10am to 10pm.

With its unique state-of-the-art design making maximum use of natural light and fresh air, and boasting the largest solar panelled carport in East Africa, the new mall promises to bring many ‘firsts’ to the Kenyan retail market.

The landscaped park at its centre is overlooked by outside seating on the dining terraces, another new feature for Nairobi shoppers. The park is designed for the whole family to enjoy, including play fountains and children’s playground, specially commissioned art installations by local artist Peterson Kamwathi, and an open air amphitheatre, hosting an extensive programme of events and shows throughout the year.

“Phase one of the mall is almost fully leased, and we’re expecting more than 50percent of our retail tenants to be ready to open with us on the May 28, including our anchor tenants, Game and Nakumatt. We are very excited to be able to open our doors and invite everyone inside to start shopping, and to begin growing our Garden City community,” said Michael Turner, Director Actis, Nairobi.
