The plan for Salama Creek comes from the purpose to provide a center for services, with a focus on financial activities. It will be a satellite town of Dar es Salaam Central Business District (CBD).
Its location is particularly strategic: it is near the port and the commercial hub of Dar es Salaam. The area would also accommodate high rise buildings, to house as many people as possible in a small area, so as to cope with growing housing demand characterizing the region.
