Konza Technology City
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
