When I first visited the Riverside Square development site early in 2019, it only had two very old colonial type bungalow units standing on the land. There were cracks on the walls of these structures and the paint was peeling off exposing unsightly walls that were truly uninviting. To say it was an eyesore would be an understatement. It was hard trying to visualize what the developer had planned for the site but I was also excited about what was to come up on this 3-acre piece of land. I couldn’t wait to for the day when I would come to a completed development.
Now we’re here seeing it almost finished and I truly appreciate the magnificence of it all. It is starting to become a little hub on Riverside Drive, with supermarkets and pharmacies now opening up. From a place that once had some old bungalows to now emerging as an outstanding structure in all its might.
Riverside Drive is one of the most coveted addresses in Nairobi and with good reason. The security of the area is top notch and the tranquil nature of the area is the envy of many other neighborhoods. There are at least 10 embassies that are spread along the drive, showing a true testament of the value of the area. This development comprises four towers offering ultra-modern 1-bed, 2-bed and 3-bed residences with a variety of floor plan options.
So what makes this location one of the most sought after addresses in Nairobi for the growing investor and a first time home owner? A deeper look at the area reveals that other than the foreign missions that dot the area making it so attractive to investors and homeowners alike, it is also centrally located with easy access to locations such as Westlands which is now considered as the hub of Nairobi as well as Lavington and Kileleshwa.
A 5-minute drive down Riverside Drive and onto Ring Road leads you to bustling Westlands where all manner of essential services are available including recreational areas such as malls, restaurants, supermarkets, hospitals, banking services and many more. I cannot think of any essential good or service that is not within reach once you are in Westlands.
When I was younger, I always considered the Riverside area to be the epitome of leisure and luxury considering I had friends living there. It is therefore not surprising that the Riverside Square development flows with a multitude of experiences that are ready for residents to engage in.
A quick stroll to the Upper West side of this 3-acre development has lots to offer from grade ‘A’ office space to a variety of shops, services and eateries. It doesn’t end there – there is more on offer. Take a dip in the infinity pool on the Lower East side or have a quick work out at the courtyard gym. For those lazy evenings, head off to the roof top movie lounge to watch a movie under the stars while taking in the amazing views from above.
Believe it when I say, you don’t want to miss out on this experience!! Live, Work, Play and Shop in Nairobi’s wealthy bohemia on Riverside drive.
