The ongoing transformation of Kampala’s high end Nakasero and Kololo suburbs into commercial space is displacing quality residential housing faster than they are being replaced.
The Nairobi market on the other hand, has seen a spike in the construction of high-rise apartment units in previously exclusive single housing unit zones like Kilimani, Westlands, Kileleshwa and Lavington which were re-zoned in 2004.
