The Hub Karen: Nairobi’s newest mall to open September 2015

Designed by Bowman & Associates, the newest mall in Nairobi, Kenya, The Hub Karen, is set to open September 2015.

Airy, large open spaces, residential-style with natural touches – The Hub will easily blend into the leafy Karen neighbourhood of Nairobi.  Set on 20 acres, where formerly Rusty Nail was located, 200 metres from the Karen roundabout, the eco-conscious development will incorporate water recycling facilities, waste disposal and state-of-the-art energy efficiency systems.

With more than 50 per cent of the development dedicated to green spaces, visitors to The Hub will enjoy walking trails, a picturesque man-made lake where fine dining restaurants will look on to, and a large event area dubbed “The Piazza.”

The two phase development will first see 35,000 sqm of retail and office space open in 2015, followed by the completion of a 150-bed hotel and conference center in 2018.

The Hub Karen is positioned to capture the increasing need for sophisticated retail experiences in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, an emerging international cosmopolitan city.

“By 2022, Kenya’s middle class is expected to grow by 30 percent,” explains Philippe Cauviere, The Hub Karen.

Nairobi’s newest lifestyle and experiential destination promises to be an enjoyable customer journey with a maximum shopping, eating and entertainment experience.
