Victoria Gardens: Ultra Modern Living Comes to Kisumu

Driving around Kisumu, Kenya’s largest city on the shores of Lake Victoria, one cannot fail to notice the multiple construction projects taking place. The town is experiencing a construction boom with property prices rising by more than 300 per cent in some areas and real estate agents and developers reaping massive returns. Even areas that were just a few years ago dominated by shrub land and isolated shanty homesteads are now being transformed into gated communities with modern residential houses.


Improvement in infrastructure over the last few years has also meant increased confidence among individual and institutional investors. Major highways and feeder roads across the Nyanza region have undergone upgrading and expansion, opening up the city. The upgrading of Kisumu Airport to an international hub has further seen property investors make a beeline into the city.


Victoria Gardens is one of the latest and exciting residential developments coming up in the city.


The development consists of 91 maisonettes of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom configuration. A club house is also part of the project.
