I was perusing yesterday's newspaper posted by @highschooler and saw there is another new mall called Spur in Ruiru.

I feel that these malls are just too many for a small city like Nairobi. Some of them I also notice have permanently "to let" sign boards. Also, nearly 3/4 of them do not qualify as malls based on the number of stores in them.

Check some of the malls that we have serving only 4 millions Nairobians.

1. Syokimau mall
2. Gateway mall
3.Taj Mall
4. Greenspan mall
5.Galleria mall
6.T-Mall
7.Sarit Centre
8. The mall
9.2 rivers
10. Westgate mall
11.Nakumatt Ukay
12.Garden city
13.TRM
14. Spur
15. Yaya centre
16. The Junction
17. Mountain mall
18. Masaai Mall- Rongai
19. Village market
20.The Point
21.Ridgeways mall
22.Greenhouse mall
23.Prestige plaza
24. Capital centre

Taj Mall will be the first to die..after Equity Kuhamia opposite building, it now almost empty...Maybe they should change the name to 'ghost mall'

Thika road is the biggest problem. TRM and Garden City are too close together. The replication of stores in the same vicinity is too much. Same problem with James Gichuru Rd. Having Junction, The Point and Lavington Mall in that short a distance will be disastrous. One will start turning into office blocks

Not forgetting there is Mountain Mall just opposite Garden City.

The alarming rate and which Nairobians are siring makes it an even ground. As long as you have what some people want, you will always thrive ...

the traffic jam jioni kwa hiyo barabara is a mess,the number of middle class in that area has more than doubled in the recent past,pesa yao will make those mall investors billions

Taj Mall will probably survive demolition. The pipeline passes on its side of the road, so expansion of Outering Rd will be done on the opposite side
