Sources; Real Estate Firm, Omoh Homes’ Gears Up To For Its Much Anticipated Green Housing Project Mega Launch, Largely Focused On Affordable Housing Units

As wheels turn towards the much anticipated mega launch, real estate firm, Omoh Homes has excluded confidence on the level of interest received on the uptake of the project.

In spearheading its green-kitchens project namely The Omoh Green (T.O.G) the firm is confident that this climate conscious project initiative dubbed The Royal Garden Estate Phase 1, located in Kinanie, Athi River, Machakos County aims at developing 3 and 4 bedroom units fitted with green-kitchens that have pre-installed low carbon stoves, will in the long run be a game changer in the local housing market.

“We are embracing new technologies and approaches in putting up our premier units. It is my belief that this will go a long way in defining the Kenyan housing and construction market anew,” said Nicholus Okach, Group CEO Omoh Homes.

Upon completion the project will consist of upto 900 units constructed over three phases.

Omoh Homes has sought to partner with low-carbon stoves and charcoal briquette makers and distributors across the region, as this will be a concerted effort in combating and controlling green house gases emissions (GHG) and in turn spread the message on climate change across Africa and globally.

“What is unique about this project is each unit will be pre-installed with a low-carbon emitting stove and this is already in the works ensuring both on overall cost of each housing unit and health-wise, the end user is protected,” added Mr Okach.

According to the project blueprint, this is in an effort to combat global warming and address the climate change agenda across Africa and globally which in turn has a tremendous positive environmental impact in the long term.

“We understand that Africa despite emitting less in terms of Green House Gases, the overall effect is that the continent will bear the brunt of climate change and adverse weather conditions in future. So our Green Housing Initiative aims at putting structures in place that will help in mitigating the effects of climate change and reducing emissions,” he added.

With steam gathering towards the rollout, so has it also attracted international attention and interest from green energy investors as they want to be involved in the project, a first of its kind of this magnitude and design.

The project, a first of its kind, in the region seeks to address several key pillars of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals among them reduction on poverty levels, accessibility of clean water and sanitation, health, decent working conditions among others.

As a brainchild of environmental advocates and forward-thinking urban planners, these green kitchen units have been designed to minimize their environmental footprint whilst maximizing on energy efficiency.

Mr Okach is adamant the strength of these stoves lies in their advanced technology, which significantly reduces harmful carbon emissions within the household setting.

Recent technological advancements and innovations have in a large extent been re-shaping the energy sector, with significant investments being placed in carbon credits and housing projects.

With the incorporation of the green kitchen in each home, Omoh Homes is also confident in seeing the cost of each unit being substantially subsidized by at least 20% through tapping into the carbon finance markets.

By promoting the use of clean energy alternatives, these initiatives not only benefit the environment but also empower residents to adopting greener lifestyles.

As governments and organizations across the world intensify efforts to combat climate change, initiatives like The Omoh Green Housing Project will be at the forefront demonstrating that sustainable development is not only achievable but also essential for building resilient, thriving communities in the face of environmental challenges.
