Nairobi-based real estate firm Kings Developers Ltd, an affiliate of Royal Group of Companies, is today set to inaugurate its 34-storey steel and glass building in Upper Hill.

Prism Towers on 3rd Ngong Road Avenue is designed to appear as prisms stacked upon one another.

Kings vice president for sales and marketing Vinayak Karambalkar said Wednesday the building has seven levels of parking.

Some multinationals have already booked space in the building, he said.

“They include Standard Chartered Bank, Regus — a corporation that provides a global workplace, and Pfizer, a biopharmaceutical company,” said Mr Karambalkar.

Offices are located from the sixth floor upwards.

The developer says the tower incorporates a range of environment-friendly systems that include a rain-harvesting to conserve water for watering the surrounding landscape.

The large windows make the most of the available natural light, reducing lighting costs and energy consumption added the real estate company.
