The Dream

English point Marina is a unique, contemporary, architectural marvel that started off as a dream by two Kenyan brothers, Alnoor and Amyn Kanji. The Mombasa born brothers had the vision when they acquired the property at English Point to recognise it's unique location and untapped potential. It sits across the stunning old Mombasa skyline in a natural marine basin with a breakwater coral shelf that is perfect for a marina. Out of this vision was born the idea to bring to Kenya, a modern, international development that offers the best in lifestyle and luxury, as well as the region’s first serviced marina to cater for the luxury boating market. The guiding principle was to build a resort to the highest international standards of design, functionality and safety and to incorporate the latest energy saving, recyclable and renewable technologies. In their words, "it had to be a landmark development and it had to add value to Mombasa." Alnoor and Amyn have assembled an excellent team of professionals to realize their vision for English Point. These include Broadway Malyan, a leading international practice of architects, urbanists and designers; Beckett Rankine who did the preliminary feasibility and master plan of the marina; Walcon Marine, prominent Marina consultants; XCO2 for best practice on sustainability issues and Helen Barker of 2designs in Mombasa who did all the interiors and landscape. What started off as just a vision, has grown to be the unique facility it is, which includes a world class boutique hotel with international standards, beautiful modern apartments that are both for sale and rent and a fully serviced floating Marina. To add on to that, the boardwalk at Englishpoint has become the “It” place for the Mombasa populace to spend time at. Not only do they enjoy the amazing views from the Boardwalk, but also the amazing cafes, restaurant and bar available on site. English point Marina is a hub of activity which has elevated the status of Mombasa, if not Kenya. It has epitomized luxury while maintaining comfort and affordability. It truly is a unique institution which will continue to grow.

Best Practice

The eco-considerations applied at English point marina is evincible in virtually every aspect of the development. From hydrology to aeration, nothing has been left to chance to see that mother earth is conserved. This emanates from the fact that environmental degradation by both anthropogenic and natural causes has seen resources dwindle at an accelerated pace. The architect and designers of the iconic development have without doubt proven that development can be done to enhance environmental sustainability. Mombasa being a city adjacent to a large water body (Indian Ocean), high levels of humidity and heat remain a challenge and indispensable part of the residents’ concerns. As evidenced by a wide application of air conditioners, developers have to take into consideration the air conditioning aspect. Despite their significance, air conditioning equipment contributes to global warming through emission of carbon dioxide. English Point Marina in Mombasa has ensured that emissions are kept at the lowest possible levels. Each structural unit has got a multi-split type air conditioner. A single unit can be connected to multiple indoor units in different rooms. The living room is used most when people are awake. When people are asleep the bedrooms are used most. Based on these usage patterns, it is unusual for all indoor units to be operated simultaneously, so a multi-split type air conditioner is the right choice for the home. The optional 5 room centralized controller allows the operation of each unit to be set from one location. Family members can activate the units in their rooms as required using the remote controller. To cut down on the usage of air-conditioners, English Point Marina has enhanced two initiatives: Special Low E Glass for all windows and doors. This glass will reduce the effect of direct sunlight on all buildings by reducing the amount of heat infiltrating into the buildings. This glass is being specially imported for English Point Marina in Mombasa Kenya. The free circulation of air within the buildings. The designers have employed the usage of sunscreens, high level windows and cross ventilation to cut down cooling costs. The structural plan is designed in a way that has an effect of creating an amazing air corridor within the buildings. Again, the systematic arrangement of the blocks creates a consequential shade effect hence providing a cooling effect to the preceding buildings. The exterior walls will have a smooth white finish to reflect sunlight and reduce absorption. Water features in the inner and outer courtyards will provide a cooling effect within the buildings. In waste treatment, English point Marina has BioDigesters. This technology is being imported from Denmark. This “Biokube" sewage treatment plant and septic tank conversion system is a wastewater treatment system that is also capable of a high level of phosphate reduction. The Biokube solves septic tanks soak away / drainage field problems by converting the septic tank to a full sewage treatment unit. One of the main functions of the Bio-cube Sewage Treatment Tank is to remove ammonia from the sample. The Bio-cube system is designed to "De-nitrify" the outgoing water. Water that emanates from this system is then channeled back to be used for the gardens and all toilets. All toilets at EnglishPoint Marina will therefore be supplied by this recycled water reducing fresh water demand by 40% to 50%. At the Marina, all rain water is also harvested from the roofs to supplement the municipal council hence adequacy in water supply. Wind turbines are also being considered for generation of electricity. While property development has been noted in virtually every aspect of metropolitan growth across the globe, natural resource conservation has been compromised. This has seen trees being brought down hence death of most of our forest ecosystems. A closer look at the English Point Marina, one would note that the application of wood is at minimal level. Ceilings frames, window panes, Kitchen surfaces amongst other housing design ramifications have less applied the use of wood in their creation. Again, this is a step in promoting sustainable development. Structurally, the location of the development is strategic in itself for conservation reasons. Going to Mombasa town would take less than five minutes using a boat instead of making a long detour by road. This would help decrease consumption of fuel by automobile on the ever packed highway to town hence energy conservation. While environmental degradation has further seen the transformation of life systems across the world, measures can be taken to prevent this. The facilities and measures in place at the marina are a profound statement that conservation can never be better than this. From sustainable development to eco-economy, nothing explains it better than English Point Marina. The valuable input from Eco consultants XCO2 from England as the eco-consultants of choice at the development explains the success of this project. It is our collective responsibility as we do our individual duty in conserving our environment. Buying and investing in an apartment at English Point Marina is one sure way of contributing to this noble duty. Its environmental conservation is at its best!

Mombasa

Mombasa Kenya's second largest city after Nairobi, offers travelers an exotic taste of the African tropics steeped in centuries of seafaring history. This cosmopolitan tourist hub is actually an island connected by bridges and ferries to the Kenyan coast. Stretching for miles along the mainland to the north and south, Mombasa's beach resorts preside over palm-studded strands fringed by shimmering coral reefs. Tourists from Europe and beyond flock here to enjoy the many water sports - from dolphin spotting trips on traditional dhows and deep-sea fishing, to diving and snorkeling the wrecks and reefs, and basking on the sun-splashed shores. But in the city itself, on the bustling island, a world of history and culture awaits. Thanks to its legacy as the largest port in East Africa, Mombasa is a cultural melting pot. British, Asian, Arabic, Omanis, Indian, and Chinese immigrants have enriched the city's architecture and cuisine, and many mosques and temples grace the city streets. In the Old Town, where fragrant spices waft from local markets, visitors can step back in time and explore the ancient buildings. On the busy harborfront here, the World Heritage-listed Fort Jesus, built by the Portuguese in the 16th century, is an architectural jewel. Beyond the city, wildlife parks, villages, and ancient ruins round out the wealth of water-based fun. The Moi International Airport is an architectural symbol of Mombasa’s growing investment in tourism. It has been newly-renovated, and a new terminal has been built to facilitate larger aircraft and increased passenger traffic. As a direct result, many of the major airlines that operate out of the airport have increased both the number and frequency of their flights, in particular from major European cities. Smaller airlines operate local and regional flights within Kenya and East and Southern Africa respectively. Kenya Airways offers the most frequent flight schedule into and out of Mombasa, to a variety of national and international destinations. Visit Kenya Airways to view flight schedules. Another airline that flies to and from Mombasa is Air Kenya. Kenya Railways offers train services throughout the country, primarily between Nairobi and Mombasa. Passengers who chose to travel via rail have the option of travelling either by first or second class. A trip from Nairobi to Mombasa usually takes around 13 hours during which a variation of wildlife can be seen at a relatively close distance. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are also served on the train’s dining carriage. Tickets can be purchased at local travel agencies as well as at the main station which is located opposite the roundabout of Haile Salassie Avenue and Mwenbe Tyari Road. Being a small town, Mombasa does not have an extensive transport grid. The main form of transport is the public bus service (Kenya Bus Services), followed by the very popular minibuses otherwise commonly known and referred to as “Matatus”. Both forms of transport are highly used by the locals, and a ride in a “Matatu” can be quite a fascinating experience. London-style cabs and other taxis can be found almost anywhere in the town. The North Coast is accessed via the Nyali Bridge, and the South Coast through the Likoni Ferry.
