Garden City, which was developed by Actis, won Kenya the medal for best green building in sub-Saharan Africa while that for the best housing development went to Karibu Homes.

Set on 32 acres, Garden City in Nairobi is East Africa's first integrated residential, retail and office development and was recognised for having the largest solar panelled carport in Africa on the mall's rooftop parking area.
