Upper Hill was historically one of the residential neighbourhoods of the city of Nairobi, during colonial times. The 280 hectares (700 acres) that comprise Upper Hill were majorly owned by Kenya Railways.
During the 1990s and early 2000s, as land and office space became scarce and exorbitantly priced in the central business district, businesses relocated to Upper Hill and Westlands, where land and office space were more readily available and less expensive.
Today, Upper Hill possesses a new modern skyline that is still being filled by modern skyscrapers of different and prestigious designs in the architectural world.
There are several landmarks, in the area including the Britam Tower-A 200 metre skyscraper that houses an insurance company. UAP-OLD MUTUAL tower-A 163 metre tower, the regional headquarters of UAP holdings. Prism tower, a new upscale property along Ngong road. KCB towers- The new headquarters of KCB bank.
It is also home to a number of prestigious hotels including, Radisson Blu and Crowne Plaza, which offer ideal meeting and conferencing facilities for the multi-national companies. Radisson Blu for instance offers a new global international hotel that stands out to be one of the prestigious and the largest conference facilities in Kenya.
This hotel has 12 meeting rooms and boardrooms, including a 590m2 ballroom all boasting natural daylight and the latest technical equipment.
But once in a while when you need to step out of the office, take a drive to a quick meeting, you can always pop-in at Nairobi Garage Kilimani, the space is easily accessible from that side of town.
