Vibrant Vision

Konza Technology City
Kenya, Africa

One of Kenya’s National Vision 2030 projects, Konza Technology City’s mission is “to be a sustainable, world-class technology hub and major economic driver for the nation…”  OZ provided physical planning services for this city’s first phase, supporting a population of 30,000.  The plan calls for mixed-use urban development in bands for focused commercial, high tech, residential and university land use.  Alternative transportation, renewable energy sources and water management contribute to a sustainable development.  A natural wildlife corridor will be preserved through the site.  OZ has begun work on implementing the first five-year phase of the 20-year, 5,000-acre city plan.

Area:  400 acres (Phase I), 5,000 acres final development
