Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Thika-based Urithi Housing Cooperative has unveiled its fourth gated community development in Kitengela.

Urithi’s membership has increased to about 4,000 in a short span, helped by it conquests in helping aspiring homeowners to step on the property ladder.

The new development is dubbed Kitengela Olive Ostrich Gated Estate, deriving its name from the renowned Ostrich Farm which it neighbours. It sits on 60 acres of land and is divided into five 12-acre blocks which will be sold in phases. The gated development is planned to have 500 houses.

Its three earlier developments are Olive Villas, Olive Annex and Olive Courts in Thika and Nakuru.

Urithi chairman Samuel Maina said it endeavours to enable its members own homes. He said economies of scale – it buys land and sub-divides for members and other buyers – have made the journey to homeownership affordable.

“Shared social amenities also provide valued conveniences for residents,” he said.

The housing cooperative has opened an office in Kitengela to handle project sales. Maina said it has also acquired a new chunk of land at the Coast in Malindi.

It now has a countrywide footprint with other parcels for sale in Kisaju in Kajiado county and Rimuruti in Laikipia county.
