URBAN Machakos
A new city for Machakos was recently proposed, with a great emphasis on Sports and entertainment, along with tourism. The plan has provided for a
fully-fledged sports city and an entertainment, tourism and conferencing belt.
The city, when complete, is expected to be a host to modern shopping malls, stadiums that can play host to international games, a formula 1 race track,
attractive hotels and lodges, a manmade lake (currently Maruba Dam), highrise and low rise commercial office buildings, high quality homes and an
international airport. Local and international investors have already shown interest in Machakos County.
It is from the entertainment, tourism and conferencing belt that I derive my site, to create an arena for entertainment, with facilities such as performing
arts venues and nightlife and eatery facilities. This is set to be a great tourist destination, not only within its region but for the whole of Nairobi
Metropolitans as well.

lack of rehearsal spaces
inaccessibility and unaffordability of recording facilities
inadequate exposutre and learning environments
lack of platforms to showcase and promote their talent.
lack of common meeting places for sharing and networking.
inadequate equipment and instrumentation for music composition.
the community at large also has limited options for entertainment especially with regard to music as an art to watch and listen to. Machakos, despite
being so entertainment-oriented, and being one of the fastest growing economies with a very visionary leader (Dr. Alfred Mutua), is still lagging behind in
terms of development, architecturally, technology or otherwise. It goes without saying that entertainment facilities are pretty much inadequate in the
current town, and during major events recently frequenting the town, such as the rugby sevens, all facilities are strained, from hotels to lodgings,
nightclubs and concert venues. This is definitely the
