The United Nations Office in Nairobi (UNON) is poised for a transformative evolution, blending modern architecture with the lush embrace of nature in a groundbreaking real estate venture.

Founded in 1974, the Gigiri-based complex has long been the central hub for the UN Environmental Programme (UNEP) and serves as the largest UN headquarters in Africa. However, faced with aging infrastructure and the need for expanded conference facilities, the UN approved a comprehensive masterplan for the Gigiri site.


Resolution 78/253, adopted by the UN General Assembly on December 22, 2023, allocated a staggering budget of approximately Sh37 billion to the project. Envisioned to accommodate 9,000 participants across a sprawling 95,700 sqm, this ambitious endeavor marks a significant milestone for the UN’s presence in Nairobi.
