Nairobi Garage has opened a two-floor coworking space at 20th Century Plaza on Mama Ngina Street in Nairobi’s Central Business District.
The new office space constitutes 12,000 SQFT and adds to its five existing outlets located in Kilimani, Karen and Westlands.
“We have seen a rise in requests for the CBD even from our current client base. Our clients have unlimited access across all our locations so this is an exciting opportunity for us to take on so that we stay current and provide comprehensive business solutions,” said the Director of Nairobi Garage, Hannah Clifford.
Nairobi Garage provides workspace and meeting rooms to many multinationals, Tier 1 businesses and individual consultants at its four existing hubs.
The coworking spaces help businesses establish new business networks, while the hub provides a complete workspace service, from presentation facilities to kitchens, reception services, and business support.
They have coworking offices in Kilimani, Karen, Spring Valley, Westlands and now Nairobi CBD.
According to Cytonn Investments, shared office spaces have continued to give better returns as compared to unfurnished office spaces as evidenced by the higher average rate per SQFT which came in at Kshs 183 for serviced offices in comparison to Kshs 93 per SQFT for un-serviced offices.
“Overall, the commercial office sector continues to record gradual expansion driven by the aggressive development activities which we expect to help boost the performance of the sector.”
“However, the excess supply of office space in the Nairobi Metropolitan Area currently at 6.7 mn SQFT, continues to remain a major challenge hindering the optimum performance of the sector.”
