SIZE / 5000 ACRES

KTC is a planned 250,000 person city, located 60km outside of Nairobi. It is designed with the goal of being a sustainable, world-class city and technology hub that will serve as an economic driver for Kenya. The city is planned with a focus creating a vibrant, walkable, green urban environment that will integrate a broad range of inhabitants. Currently a greenfield site, KTC will be built in 5 phases. The first phase, to be built over 5 years, will contain 30,000 residents and is the focus of current planning efforts. Phase one is designed as a “stitch” in the overall masterplan. The primary east-west axis of the stitch contains mixed-use program and two primary roadways, a green-park boulevard with public transportation and a commercial/retail boulevard. The two boulevards are designed to bring traffic into the city from the expressway at the eastern edge of the site. The boulevards also connect a series of north-south cross-stitches, each of which contain bands of specific program.
