They also have an opportunity to own a holiday home in the Coastal Region. Residents will enjoy gorgeous weather, breath taking views, invigorating ambiance, historically hip neighbourhood, land water and sports adventure and also a world class dining shopping and cultural centre,” said Maina. 

The apartments located are just a five minutes’ drive from the beach and a kilometer from the upcoming Ocean Seven (Formerly Sun and Sands Beach Hotel) in Kilifi County. 

“This is unbeatable location and I urge everyone to hurry up and own a unit since, as usual, we will apply our ‘first come first served’ policy,” he added.

Urithi CEO Kelvin Muthuri said Urithi will unveil more projects in the Coastal Region and the around the country in a bid to foster harmony among Kenyans and also ensure that Kenyans move forward together. The duo was addressing the press in Thika while briefing the media on Urithi's progress in National Building. 

Meanwhile, the Iranian government and Urithi Housing Cooperative Society are negotiating a deal that will see the Iranian government assist Kenya in building cheaper houses through the use of cheaper and quality construction materials.

The Iranian ambassador to Kenya Dr. Hadi Farajvand said that Iran has great expertise in building mass houses for the low income segment of the economy and will be sharing this technology with Kenya to ensure they reduce the cost of construction of houses.

Dr. Farajvand said that the Iranian government had built 1.8 million houses for its low income population with an additional 300, 000 still under construction.

“We want to transfer our technology, expertise and experience to Kenya so that we can reduce the final price of housing,” said Dr. Farajvand

Urithi Housing Cooperative Society Chairman Samuel Maina expressed their vision to offer affordable housing solutions to Kenyans through modern technology which was cheap and fast to implement.

“What we want to achieve is providing affordable housing solutions through purchase of cheap construction materials and home appliances from Iran. We will keep negotiating for better deals for our clients as we thrive in quality and a variety,” said Maina.

He said that they will soon put up a pilot project of 1, 000 units using these materials adding that this development would spur the uptake of houses for the low income earners thus addressing the housing shortage in the country.
