Elite Towers Westlands


Why Westlands is Irresistible


Home to Kenya’s – or is it East Africa’s? – first and busiest shopping mall, “The Sarit Centre” Westlands is undeniably a City Within A City. The suburb is magnet to multinational corporations and expatriates, fast rising regional super brands, upper income families and a jaw dropping night life.

The “City” also commands the lion’s share of the total number of grade A commercial space at circa 623,000m2 or 43% against 478,000m2 and 324,000m2 for Upperhill and Kilimani respectively according to H1 2019 Nairobi Office Market Snapshot by Broll Property Group with GTC along Waiyaki Way being the latest entrant. A sizeable number of other first-rate buildings are also under construction in the area with completions set for Q1 2020 for most.


Excellent road network


This without doubt has been Westland’s single biggest boon since time immemorial. With a series of endless arteries connecting to the main Waiyaki way, Uhuru highway and Thika road scores of residents, workers and visitors have limitless options to access the area from CBD, Kilimani, Kikuyu, Gigiri or even the airport via Outering and Thika roads. You’re in and out of the place in an impulse, without a sweat and with lots of time in savings. We all know what it means to commute to and from most estates or commercial hubs around Nairobi on any given day.


Serene residential cum commercial address


Who can resist an office on the top floor of a high rise building with international specifications such as generous parking, corporate identity and cutting edge security systems in a tranquil location and an all-en-suite three bedroom apartment with the master bedroom opening to a balcony allowing in breathtaking morning freshness and heated roof top swimming pool just five minutes away from the office? This is music to the ears of many an expatriate and C Suite executives, most of whom are known to favor the area. Check out some of the apartments we are selling in the area.


Entertainment and recreational facilities


Westlands comes alive at night. There’s something for everyone, from nostalgic senior citizens craving timeless rhumba hits, yea! like the one that brought Kanda Bongo Man to stardom, to younglings out to “live once” you’ll be spoilt for choice. So irresistible is the allure that a random spot check on most entertainment joints on any weeknight or weekend reveals strings of top-of-the-range cars packed outside as supply for private parking by the establishments is outmatched by demand tenfold.

Come weekend all roads lead to the swankiest shopping mall where international and local clothing, electronic, fast food, gaming and supermarket chains all compete for your attention, this is our third fascination with Westlands.


Cosmopolitan appeal


Safaricom Plc, Google, PWC, Oracle, UNHCR, USAID, EU, AVIC and a dozen more blue chips all have their regional headquarters in Westlands. The multinationals are known for their multi-cultural and diverse composition of staff members drawn from all over the world. It goes without saying that majority mid level to first ranking managers, expats, contractors and associates working with these institutions also live within Westlands for its convenience.

This unique convergence of cultures from almost all seven continents with well-traveled, well-educated and economically empowered residents ultimately makes Westlands the leader in “live, work and play” concept within the region, a league only dominated by cities like Dubai, Brussels and Toronto in the whole world.


Award winning social amenities
