Infrastructure is a crucial factor in the development of any area as it opens it up to investment and increases the value and development of land. This is why tenants and homeowners are drawn to areas with good infrastructure, as it allows them to satisfy their basic needs and improve their quality of life. Hao Finder Real Estate has identified four areas within Nairobi Metropolitan with great infrastructure for those looking to buy land.

The first area is Kamakis-Ruiru. Ruiru is one of the most populous sub-counties in Kenya, and the construction of the Thika Superhighway and the Eastern bypass have greatly contributed to its development. The Eastern bypass, which is 39 km long, starts on the Ruiru-Kiambu road and then crosses the Northern Bypass and the Ruiru railway line to join into Thika Road, then crosses Kamiti, Gathara-ini, and Nairobi rivers into Ruai. The primary objective of the dualling of the Eastern bypass was to create a shorter route to and from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, for those looking to avoid the traffic along Mombasa Road. This has attracted a majority of over 60 major industries, companies, godowns, and a number of higher learning institutions such as Zetech University and Kenyatta University branch in Ruiru. As a result, the price of an acre in Kamakis-Ruiru recently jumped 17.5% to an average of Ksh14.8 million.
The second area is Juja Farm Town. Juja Farm is located off the Thika Superhighway, specifically a 10-minute drive from the highway and a one-hour drive from Nairobi Central Business District (CBD). The development in Juja Farm Town was boosted by the expansion of Juja Farm Road, a seven-kilometer stretch that connects Juja farm to Juja town in Kiambu County. This road renovation improved transportation and security for the gated communities, and also attracted many industries, schools, and residential areas. The demand for housing in Juja, largely contributed by the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, has also played a role in the development of Juja Farm Town.
The third area is Kamulu Town. Joska-Kamulu is located in Ruai in Kasarani, a constituency in Nairobi County. Kamulu is 35 kilometers and a 30-minute drive from Nairobi CBD, and it's a few minutes away from Machakos County. It's accessible via Thika Road, Mombasa Road, and the Eastern Bypass. The expansion of Kangundo Road to a dual carriageway has opened up the area for investment. This has attracted many residents, developers, and investors looking to build houses, schools, and businesses in the area. The area has seen a significant increase in the number of gated communities, and the rental and property prices have also gone up.
Lastly, the fourth area is Kitengela Town. Kitengela is located in Kajiado County, along the Athi River and is only a 45-minute drive from Nairobi CBD. The town has experienced rapid development in recent years, and it's now considered as one of the most attractive satellite towns. The development of the town was boosted by the expansion of the Nairobi-Namanga road, which connects Kitengela to the Namanga border and the Standard Gauge Railway. This has improved transportation and opened up the area for investment. The town has attracted many residents, developers, and investors looking to build houses, schools, and businesses in the area. Kitengela Town has become a popular destination for those looking for a peaceful and serene living
