Tatu City is located in Ruiru, a land known for its thousands acres of coffee plantation in Kiambu County. In 2008 the area was acquired by one of the largest urban land developer in Africa. The city is planned as a mixed use and mixed income urban development, including all sorts of facilities and urban amenities. The first phase of construction of Tatu City began in 2012, occupants were expected to move into residential units by the last quarter of 2013 and commercial and retail operations were expected to open in 2014. But due to legal battles the process of construction of Tatu City slowed down and it is still at its preliminary phase.
