LUXURY LONDON DEVELOPER ONE POINT SIX EXPANDS INTO EAST AFRICA
July 3, 2019
June 2019: London based luxury developer One Point Six has entered into the East African market, following two successful years of operation. The business, whose residential London projects have all achieved record-breaking prices, has signed its first contract to design the corporate office of Victoria Commercial Bank, one of the most respected banks in Kenya.
One Point Six, which was set up by Yadav Jani and Bhavnish Chandaria in 2017, takes inspiration from the ‘golden ratio’, the perfectly symmetrical relationship between two proportions. The team specialises in the meticulous refurbishment of single to multi-unit properties across prime central London, for both the open market and private clients.
The expansion into East Africa is being spearheaded by Directors Yadav and Bhavnish, both of whom have backgrounds within real estate and finance in Kenya. Their contract to design the corporate offices of the Victoria Commercial Bank is the first of a number of projects planned in the region.
The Victoria Commercial Bank’s new commercial office is approximately 4,000 sq.ft. of space within the vicinity of the Two Rivers Shopping Mall, East Africa’s largest mall. This One Point Six-designed office will function as a branch but will act mainly as a discrete area for the bank’s VIP clients and high profile individuals.
One Point Six will be delivering their renowned superior quality finish, providing a luxurious yet practical setting perfectly suited to the bank’s prestigious clientele.
The project, though in Kenya, will be designed from One Point Six’s London office, whilst the materials will be sourced from UK and European suppliers. The team will build on their experience of delivering a bespoke design sympathetic to the character and heritage of the locality, rather than a blanket book-match design. With this in mind, One Point Six hopes to exhibit a different pedigree of finish altogether, above anything previously seen in commercial arena in Kenya.
Yadav Jani, Director at One Point Six, comments; “Having completed a number of high end interior projects in the UK, we are now bringing our expertise to the local market in Kenya. We know what high end spaces should look like and will deliver this project in a way that lives up to the One Point Six brand, as well as showcasing an entirely different level of quality to the market.”
One Point Six also has a number of other projects in the pipeline, including 4 residential developments. The Victoria Commercial Bank project is due for completion in late Autumn 2019.
