Why you should buy an Apartment in Parklands


Parklands has been in the past seen a rising an increase in both residential and commercial properties developments. This is due to the increasing demand in the market especially from the Asian community. Parklands was established in the late 1940s as a commercial and residential suburb.  Its proximity to the CBD makes it a viable property investment area, housing the upper middle class and Kenya’s vibrant Indian business community. Additionally parklands offer a melting point of religions across Hindu, Christianity and Muslim whose adorned houses of worship are widespread across the area.

Parklands has seen rise of real estate developments due to its security and proximity to the CBD. Notably, part of its housing architecture has a strong Indian/Asian influence, but there are also many modern apartments coming up due to the increasing demand and market diversification. The area is part of westlands and is strategically located to sporting, medical, shopping, schools and banks among other facilities and amenities. Health facilities include The MP Shah hospital, Avenue hospital, the Aga Khan Hospital and Parklands Kidney Centre. Sporting facilities includes Nairobi Gymkhana, Kenya Hockey Union and Parklands Sports Club. We have institutions such as Kenyatta University campuses, Oshwal Collage and the Aga Khan University. Parklands is also a renowned hub for some of the city’s nightlife entertainment.

The property values and trends is growing and there has been a boom in the construction of apartments in the area, driven by high demand and limited space, and sold per unit. Most of the upcoming real estate developments offers the pinnacle of luxury living, the height of relaxation, and the ultimate in style.
