Introduction to Kilimani

You probably think you have heard all there is to hear about Kilimani don’t you? But there is always more to the story. 

Here is what we mean: Kilimani is a wide location with abundant opportunity. 

From its versatility and vibrant culture to its convenient location and road network. Kilimani is an exceptional community of foreigners and locals. Its proximity to the Nairobi CBD, Westlands, Karen, Kileleshwa, and Lavington makes it a sort of focal point. Kilimani boasts a rich road network and an abundance of social amenities.

The evident inflow of expatriates and locals alike has led to an increase in opportunities for businesses and real estate in Kilimani. From restaurants, office spaces, banks such as the Bank of China and Sidian Bank which has its headquarters on Wood Avenue, shopping malls, and more, Kilimani has a lot of business opportunities available for residing investors.  The presence of a lot of foreign influence and settlement in the area alone is enough testament to how attractive Kilimani is as a business hub.  There are a few embassies such as the Ethiopian, Indonesian, Russian, South Sudanese, Chinese, and Slovakian embassies. This is evidence of the safety of the area and proof of its stability.

The Kilimani Community & Social Amenities 

The community in Kilimani supports every individual’s lifestyle whether it is a young family with school-going children, students, people in retirement or those just visiting. 

A large contributing factor to the vibrance of Kilimani is the cosmopolitan nature of the community. It is arguably one of the most culturally diverse locations in Nairobi, with high demand by expatriates and sizable representations of West African, Ethiopian, Eritrean, Caucasian, and Chinese communities. You will not miss the niche cuisine restaurants every few meters. There are many lounges and hangout spots that are a welcome addition to the young population in Kilimani, which is the majority of the demographic. 

For families with school-going children, there is an abundance of schools such as the Cavina School, Light International Academy, Kilimani International, La Fontana, etc.

For your shopping pleasure, there are malls eg. Yaya Centre, Prestige Plaza, Adams Arcade, and Greenhouse Mall just to mention a few, with as many shops, pharmacies, and service stores. Notable healthcare facilities around Kilimai include 761 International Hospital, The Nairobi Hospital, The Coptic Hospital, etc 

Investment Opportunities on Residential Buildings

With all these amazing social and business opportunities available in this area, Kilimani has seen an increase in attractiveness to the business community. This translates to an increase in appeal in the real estate industry as well.  As more businesses open up in the area there is a paralleled increase in the demand for rental residences within the area. Over the years there have been numerous residential buildings that have come up in specific areas of Kilimani. However, the little-known section of Kilimani along Elgeyo Market Road has maintained Kilimani’s reputation of being serene and high-end. In this area, you will find Wilma Towers.
