Greensquare Mall to boost Kericho’s stature

Home » Projects » Greensquare Mall to boost Kericho’s stature

Kericho is a mid-sized town nestled in Kenya’s Rift Valley. It is at the heart of Kenya’s biggest water catchment area, the Mau Forest. With a high altitude and reliable rains, Kericho is the centre of Kenya’s tea growing industry and hosts some of the country’s largest tea plantations.

As the town continues to grow in the face of the devolved political and economic system adopted by Kenya several years ago, investors have taken an even keener interest in Kericho. Consequently, the town is about to experience its first ultramodern shopping mall – the Greensquare Mall.

“Kericho’s population of more than one million people is currently served only by small hotels and single retail outlets, yet boasts a wide base of affluent consumers”, says Chris Ng’eno of Greensquare Mall Limited, the developers. Kenya’s leading retail supermarket – Nakumatt – is poised to be the anchor tenant.


Designed by Team 2 Architects, the Greensquare Mall is located along the busy Kericho-Kisumu highway strategically set to serve not only Kericho residents but also the thousands of travelers who use this major transport corridor.

The mall comprises three floors of shopping and entertainment with over 135 parking spaces made available. It has a lettable area of 105,572 square feet.  The project is projected to cost more than Ksh 500 million (Approximately US$5,000,000).

Features and amenities

Greensquare Mall will be served by two lifts. Provision has been made for easy access by disabled persons. A borehole on site will guarantee continued supply of water to the building. There is also standby power to ensure business continuity in the event of outages from the national grid. Greensquare Mall will be fully secured with CCTV installed in all public areas. Like in many modern buildings, the building will be internet ready.

Groundbreaking took place last June and construction is expected to take 18 months. The project is being managed by Limojade Management while Dunhill Consulting will be the letting agent.

No major challenges have been experienced so far safe for heavy rains that often hit the Kericho area.
