The government has announced the RFI&I for the Masterplan Development of Konza Technology city. Through an advert which has been approved and is set to appear in next edition of The Economist, the government is looking for someone to develop the BPO/ITES masterplan. The government would engage with the Masterplan Developer on a Public Private Partnership model.
Konza Technology City is one of Kenya Vision 2030 flagship projects.The BPO park would contain world class infrastructure and technology to facilitate and cluster research, education and business and create over 200,000 jobs. The BPO/ITES park will be part of a larger mixed urban development providing a best in class residential and working environment. A New Town will be created around the BPO park providing different residential options and all required city amenities such as hospitals, schools, a university and science park, hotels, parks, city government buildings, a financial centre and retail and additional office space in a new central business district.
The dream, if realised, will change the entire landscape of Nairobi and position Kenya as a tech giant.
