A new residential property is set to come up near the pristine and expansive area of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
Lancet Village, a flagship project of Lancet Housing Cooperative Society has already commanded strong interest from prospective buyers with units flying off the shelf. According to Lancet Sacco Chairman Patrick Were, the project is attracting strong interest in the market due to its prime location at Katani area of Mavoko Municipality in Machakos near Syokimau.
Noteworthy, buyers are high in optimism for a significant value appreciation of the property owing to ongoing infrastructural developments along Mombasa road including the standard gauge railway. ‘Other ongoing infrastructural developments include construction of Katani road phase 2, construction of Mlolongo – Katani – Kamulu link road and the upgrading of Mombasa road,’ he said.
Lancet Village is a gated community sharing a sharing an enviable proximity to Kenya’s main aerodrome. The lavish and neatly designed property is approximately ten minutes’ drive from JKIA and Syokimau main Railway station and only 25 minute drive from CBD, making it an ideal location for business people and professionals who have a penchant for the fine things in life.
The first phase will have 84 soundly constructed units of two and three bedroom apartments, 106 units of four bedroom maisonettes , a commercial area and a kindergarten. Worthy of notice, the development has been a magnet to many off-plan buyers eyeing assets near the airport. All the two bedroom units have been fully booked as well as over 80 per cent of the three bedroom units.
In a bid to manage the country’s housing deficit, Lancet Group of Labs CEO Dr. Ahmed Kalebi said the projects core objective is to enable Lancet staff members and other Kenyans own homes at reasonable and affordable rates.
Apart from the close proximity to travel stations, Lancet Village residents will enjoy a dedicated commercial area which comprises restaurants, mini-market, medical clinic, salon, barbershop, gym, swimming pool and a kindergarten. To be outstanding in the competitive real estate sector, the designers of Lancet Village have nicely incorporated landscape surrounding with a generous use of shrubs and trees, private lush gardens, green recreational areas, children’s play gardens and ample parking space. Additionally, security is paramount with double manned gates, electric fence and CCTV while water and power back-up facilities are put into place.
