Lifestyle Estates, a leading real estate developer in Kenya, has started construction of its high-quality apartment complex on 30 acres within Tatu City, the mixed-use, mixed-income satellite city project near Nairobi. ‘Lifestyle Heights’ will be a secure gated community, with 450 apartments in its first 10 acres, consisting of two and three-bedroom units. The development will comfortably accommodate 2,250 residents.

Construction activity in phase one has already commenced. The first units will be ready for occupation in December 2018.

“Tatu City offers Lifestyle Heights the full complement of infrastructure to provide our prospective residents with what they need: affordable, comfortable housing in a controlled and gated community within a wider organised development, ” said CEO of Lifestyle Estates, Peter Karoki. “Lifestyle Heights merges the vision of Tatu City and the lifestyle expectations of our prospective clients.”

All units will have adequate parking and equal access to all amenities, such as a shopping complex, jogging track, children’s park, and recreation gardens. Social infrastructure, such as school bus drop off points, paved driveways, backup power for common areas security features, and well-defined pedestrian pathways have also been incorporated into the plans.

Because Lifestyle Heights is located within Tatu City, households will enjoy adequate water supply with efficient storm water collection and sewer systems with additional security throughout the development. Nick Langford, Country Head of Rendeavour, Tatu City’s developer and majority owner, said, “The addition of Lifestyle Heights to the residential options available at Tatu City is a testament to the mixed-income ethos of the project, providing a wide spectrum to the market and thereby creating a city for all Kenyans.”
