Ring Road Westlands suburb where the Escada will be located is already home to a couple of residential developments like the Pointe Apartments and Parklands Apartments. Recent construction developments within and around Westlands positions the suburb as a prime regeneration candidate on an upward growth curve.

The project is being developed by Canaan Developers – a real estate development company that specializes in complex rural or urban projects and was formed to cater to the growing construction demand and development in the Kenyan and East African regions.

Previous projects by Canaan Developers include Grand Riverside Apartments (Riverside Drive), Volaire (Matundu Lande), Mzima Springs, and Royal Tulip Hotel.

With the Escada, the developers intend to integrate a wide array of residential elements including a rooftop swimming pool, decadent sky lounge, fully-fitted gym, bore-hole water supply, back-up generator, high-speed lifts, CCTV surveillance, Internet connectivity, MATV, video intercom, access control, electric fence and manned security at the entrance.
