The Government of Kenya through the State Department for Housing and Urban Development (SDHUD) under the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing, Urban Development and Public Works is committed to the construction of a railway city. In this regard, the government is committed to collaborating with the private sector to facilitate delivery of the Railway City through engaging Strategic Partners to undertake the development of the Railway City and related amenities as Master Developer.
In collaboration with Kenya Railways and the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS), SDHUD with the Railway City Development Authority intends to redevelop the Nairobi Central Railway Station and its surrounding areas into a multi-modal, transit oriented, urban development dubbed “The Nairobi Railway City”. Owing to its strategic location, the Nairobi Station Area will be developed into an iconic nerve centre for the Nairobi multimodal transport system with a world class new central station incorporating mixed use commercial developments, housing and intermodal facilities. It will serve as functional, architectural and urban centrepiece to Nairobi’s growing global reputation as a leading modern city on the world stage.
The project is of great national significance as it forms part of core strategy for regeneration of Nairobi City and the area has been designated as Special Planning Area in line with; The Physical and Land Use Planning Act No. 13 of 2019 and a project of strategic national importance. It is also one of the priority projects identified in the NIUPLAN undertaken by the SDHUD as a strategy for expansion of Nairobi’s Central Business District (CBD).
