Workspace provider, KOFISI has opened Nairobi’s first purpose-built specialist media centre boasting a broadcast and podcasting studio to cater for a growing number of content creators, media businesses and influencers in the city.
The new facility, KOFISI 9 located at 9 West building within the thriving Westlands suburb includes one of the largest, technology focused Conference Rooms available in the city, 2,000 sqft of open terrace space and a ‘Secret Garden’ located on the rooftop of 9 West building.
The new 25,000 sq ft Centre is the fifth furnished office facility in Nairobi by KOFISI that complements its other investments in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Lagos (Nigeria), Accra (Ghana), Cairo (Egypt) and Johannesburg in South Africa.
Michael Aldridge, KOFISI Africa’s CEO says, “The new Media Suite at KOFISI 9, with its Podcasting Room and Broadcasting Suite is set up to rent out by the hour or more and this dedicated space is soundproofed space to record podcasts, radio bulletins and tv interviews.
“We have had numerous requests from influencers Jimmy Gathu, Makena Njeri, Murugi Munyi and Ivy Mugo as well as international and local TV broadcasters who want to send prospective interviewees to our studio to do live or recorded ‘Down the Lines’ where they will get a great quality soundbite – that’s fit for broadcast.”
The opening of KOFISI 9 is further validation of the success of the flexible office model across Africa that is a real estate market disruptor fast establishing itself as the office choice for a discerning work community who appreciate there’s an ordable, sophisticated and exciting alternative to the traditional office set up.
KOFISI 9 at 9 West in Westlands bears the hallmarks of KOFISI’s brand values, delivering premium design and luxurious spaces, catering to multinational and top-notch businesses looking for sophisticated workspace and industry leading technology with first class hospitality. These brand values continue to set KOFISI apart from other office space providers on the Continent and in Nairobi.
The addition brings KOFISI’s office space in Nairobi to almost 200,000 sq ft with other Centres located in Westlands, Karen, Riverside and Upperhill catering for their wide array of clients from corporate to multinational and international organisations.
Director/Partner of 9 West, Rahul Patel says, “It’s always been our vision to create a vibrant hub for people to interact in the middle of Westlands and to attract the growing crowd of young professionals in Nairobi. Having KOFISI and a new food concept on our ground floor is a boost for our building – as the brand values and design concepts of both companies are a great fit for us. By providing incredible spaces we are re-inventing 9 West and we are very excited about what the future holds.”
There will also be an exciting new restaurant on the ground floor making the building an attractive destination for young professionals after work.
