Gateway Real Estate Africa (GREA) sees Kenyan data centres and light industrial property as growth drivers in its property development portfolio, CEO Greg Pearson tells The Africa Report.

Forget the pessimists worried about electoral ‘noise’ – investors remain bullish on Kenya.

Gateway Real Estate Africa (GREA) has completed more than $100m worth of projects in the country. “There’s such buoyancy in Kenya at the moment,” Pearson says. The ease of connection with East Africa is creating “a huge positive push. There’s a lot going for Kenya right now”.
