Looking for office space in Africa? Where do you want to work?
Africa is notorious for expansive panoramas and everlasting skies, but following a period of sustained investment and growth in the gateway cities, some uniquely impressive skylines are emerging, transforming the Continent’s urban business districts and showcasing the very best in architectural creativity and sophisticated building design.
In just a few years the Nairobi skyline has been a constantly evolving silhouette – with the addition of new skyscrapers and top-quality high-rise buildings going up behind the boardings, helping enterprise establish itself in the region, and serving to cement Nairobi as one of Africa’s most attractive and accessible commercial centres.
One particular area of the city which has noticed significant development is Westlands, which has been quietly overtaking Upperhill and the CBD as one of the most sought-after hubs for business in Nairobi. Ideally situated within easy access to some of the most affluent residential neighbourhoods including Muthaiga, Gigiri, and Lower Kabete, Westlands now boasts some of the city’s most impressive buildings, housing state of the art offices, alongside high-end hotels and modern retail outlets.
KOFISI’s serviced office space in Westlands sits right in the Centre of this bustling central neighbourhood. Its prime location is within easy reach of the newly developed Sarit Centre, Westgate Mall, the Villa Rose Kempinski Hotel and the Park Inn by Radisson. The area also boasts some of Nairobi’s most popular restaurants including The Pepper Tree, Inti and Open House as well as The Alchemist and Mama Rocks – if you want to go out after work when the city-wide covid lockdown ends.
KOFISI’s offices in Westlands have also undergone significant renovation with the addition of a new café on the 7th floor which includes a wrap-around terrace and outdoor work space overlooking the morphing Nairobi skyline. The addition of a whole new floor to the KOFISI Westlands portfolio has created ample room to deliver some of the most engaging business facilities in Nairobi, including new board rooms and meeting rooms, fitted with the latest intelligent technology, including 360 degree cameras to host hybrid meetings and virtual seminars.
All KOFISI’s private offices in Westlands are fully furnished and newly renovated, offering modern, spacious, plug in and get to work spaces for teams of 4 to 20 people and KOFISI’s in-house designers can help larger teams create a bespoke office to suit any workstyle. The office spaces come with access to over 2,000 sq ft of professional on-site business facilities, hospitality services, all within flexible monthly contracts.
The upgrades include the provision of extra coworking space in Westlands with day passes and weekly packages available for those who don’t want to be in the office every day. These spaces include break out lounges, communal kitchen areas and specialist strategy rooms with high speed wifi and the latest technology fitted throughout, ensuring Members can be at their most productive all day, as well as being able to work from anywhere they choose around the Centre.
And if teams need to be, or to meet elsewhere in the city – or Africa, then they can work – at no extra cost – at any of the other KOFISI serviced offices in Nairobi – including KOFISI Karen, KOFISI Riverside and KOFISI Upperhill, as well as KOFISI offices in Lagos, Dar Es Salaam and Accra.
It seems that investment in Westlands, Nairobi is set to continue on its upward trajectory, with the construction of the Nairobi Expressway linking Limuru to JKIA going full steam ahead. This feat of engineering passes over Westlands, which, when it’s completed will significantly improve traffic in the area, as well as increasing the accessibility of this once residential neighbourhood, putting it firmly on the map as one of the most desirable locations to work in Nairobi.
