Machakos City Masterplan

Machakos County Governor, Dr. Alfred Mutua, has launched a master-plan for Machakos City.

The city has been planned on 500 acres of land that have been hived off some 4,000 acres of land, formerly belonging to the council, which has been lying idle.

The city, that comes complete with a Central Business District, will have among others, a very large green open area for parks, government offices, community facilities, an area reserved for educational facilities, a mix of low, medium and high density residential areas and an industrial park.

The plan has also provided for a fully fledged sports city and a tourism and conferencing belt.

The city, when complete, is expected to be a host to modern shopping malls, stadiums that can play host to international games, attractive hotels and lodges, a man made lake, highrise and low rise commercial office buildings, high quality homes and an international airport.

Local and international investors have already shown interest in Machakos County.

Below is a series of images presenting the various sections of the master-plan.
