The construction of an exclusive city in Kilifi County at the Kenyan Coast is set to commence; this is according to NSE-listed investment company, Centum which is the company behind the mega project. The city will sit on a  9,500 acre piece of land.

The first phase will see the construction of an infrastructure on 900 acres of the land and is expected to cost US$ 8m. The 900 acres has been divided and it includes residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, recreational, and public zones.

“The Master Plan development has been phased for over 30 years and it will be gradually implemented at an average rate of 900 acres in the first years and 200 acres per year starting with areas without sisal and later on land with old crop that will not be replaced,” says part of the regulatory filings.
