Capital M Apartments is A mixture of retail, leisure and residential development within one building. All naturally lit and ventilated giving an interesting scheme of 10 residential floors over 2 retail floors with a top floor of communal facilities. That sums up Nairobi’s latest sensation – Capital M Apartments, located in Westlands.
Designed by prominent Nairobi architectural house Beglin Woods, Capital M plans to enter into the largely untapped Airbnb business travel market. Airbnb is a home-sharing service that is quietly taking root in Kenya especially at the coast as owners open up their homes to mostly tourists who want a home away from home kind of accommodation.
For business travellers, their uptake of Airbnb is still low as many still prefer the finest hotel rooms which guarantee daily clean beddings, a bar or a gym and conference facilities. However, Capital M – which will have 110 apartments and penthouses – has set the bar high in the residential property market and will have a conference centre, concierge services and a cafe. Residents can also play indoor squash, swim or lounge at a rooftop pool or roof garden. The roof garden also insulates the building from heat and keeps it cool. It also has a business lounge.
The high-rise property is set to compete with hotels such as Crowne Plaza, Radisson Blu and Villa Rosa Kempinski for business.
Aram Laloui, the director at Zana Group, who are the marketers of the property, said its location makes it attractive to business travellers. “Airbnb has high numbers of users and Capital M wants to leverage these travellers to attract higher rental income for property owners,’’ said Mr Laloui.
